So watching tatum in the playoffs so far and you had the following options for a davis trade...which one?your personal agenda to unload Hayward is awful. His play has picked up the past month so he's not looking like the shell of himself from earlier this year.
Brown and hayward and 2 picks for davis and moore
Tatum, smart and 2 picks for davis?
neither deal works. NO would probably be thrilled to get Brown and Hayward in the same deal but if, in the realm of the impossible, this happened there would be no picks included - at least nothing higher than 20. The Tatum-Smart deal needs more pieces to make that palatable for NO --> no way they settle for just that.
Deal is likely going to be Tatum, Smart, Williams, the 4 first rounders this year (or swapping the Clips or C's pick this year for the C's pick next year to allow potential trade options for the C's next year that Danny may have his eye on) and possibly Semi or Yabu for money matching (or roster clearing). that's better than what anyone else can offer. not that the premise of trading should be offering $100 when the next best is $50 just to clinch the deal. an offer of $60 should do that just fine and then some.
I'll say that I'm also all for a Davis trade that sends Hayward out. I think it's the cleanest trade given the salaries and fit. If Hayward has a really good showing in the playoffs and looks like an asset, routing him to a third team and sending out Hayward and 4 picks for Davis might get it done.
Nothing against Hayward, really. I think the fit is better, it simplifies the contract situation and we get to hang on to more of our home grown Celtics (like Tatum, Brown, and Smart).
