Trey Lyles. Really think he could help as a bigger guy that can switch on ball screens, rebound, facilitate and stretch the floor.

C's would still have to pay Yabs.  Why not wait until the season starts and look for a trade?

He doesn't rebound noticeably more than Yabu. I do think he is more likely a NBA player than Yabu at this point but I don't think he's a great prospect either.

Either way I don't see the C's eating Yabu's deal to bring him in, but I could be wrong.

Yeah I feel like the C's will do this, and then move Yabu along with cash to create a roster spot at the deadline if they want one for a buyout or a separate trade.

Yabu is 100% on this team because his salary is more than the minimum and he is expiring - making him a perfect inclusion in any trade. While he isn't an NBA caliber player, his contract is more valuable to us through the deadline. He will either be traded or let go at that point to make room for a vet who can better help us down the stretch.

I imagine Danny will keep Yabu on the roster solely for his contract.  Aggregating Yabu with a couple other contracts could allow the Celts to trade for somebody making a decent chunk of change.


Yabu + Theis could allow the Celts to take back a player making as much as $13.1 million, if I'm not mistaken.

If Lyles would sign for the minimum I suppose that would be fine, but itís not something to get worked up about.  Lyles is better than Yabu, but I donít think heíd crack the rotation.

I donít expect there to be much aggregation going on, unless Theis isnít guaranteed next year (Iíve been traveling and may have missed that piece of info).  Teams generally donít like to take on long-term money owed to reserves in a deadline deal.  The movable guys are Yabu and Wannamaker, in terms of adding someone for depth at the deadline.

$5 million beyond this year for a guy who is reasonably productive and can both defend and shoot doesn't seem like it ought to be hard to move.

You're right that teams don't usually like to take on future money in a deadline deal unless it's a significant asset.  That said, next summer's free agency class is pretty weak so teams may not be as adverse to taking on salary for 2020-2021.

Not until after the trade deadline.   No point before then since he is still useful for cap filling purposes.

The overreaction here over one crap summer league performance is typical for these forums and not at all surprising.
Yes, Yabu is playing for his career and he's been pretty much a bust to date - but I'd also hold off on final judgements till we get into the season and he's given a chance to earn minutes. 

For the first time in his career he's being given that chance.

I would point out that we don't have much at all at the 4-5 so it's pretty much an open audition for playing time after Kanter.  A Yabu who plays the way Ainge envisioned when he was drafted would help the situation, as right now we're on track to get routinely destroyed in the paint by Milwaukee and the Sixers.
