I think he might be a good fit at the 4?

I like Kemba, I do, but....
http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yxc6e6hd

~Bulls trade Markkanen, Porter and White for Kemba, John Collins and Romeo
   -Bulls Lineup: Kemba, Lavine, Williams, Collins, Carter

~Atlanta trades Collins and snell for smart and theis
    - hawks lineup: Trae, Smart, Hunter, gallinari, Capela

~Boston trades kemba, smart, romeo and theis for porter, markkanen, snell and white
    _ Celtics lineup: White, brown, tatum, Markken, Thompson
   with PP,Snell,Porter,semi, williams off bench
*Porter and senell are expiring, thus can pay Markkenan next year.

Bulls may want picks involved too?

I think Kemba and Romeo for Lavine, sato and young.

Flip sato for barnes.

SG: Reggie Miller / Jeff Hornacek / Nick Anderson
SF: George Gervin / George McGinnis / Kyle Korver

Trading three starters from a conference finalist team for three starters from a non-playoff team doesn't seem like a great GM move.

I do like the idea of trying to get Markennan though. I think Markennan would have to tell them he doesn't want to stay in Chicago, and the Celtics would need to give up some good pieces to get him.

But I don't think there is any way Ainge will trade the Js, Walker, or Smart in a deal for him.

Bad deal for the Cs if we’re not getting Collins back.

what you said makes sense but I agree with others that Smart and Theiss are expendable (somewhat). Also if team was healthy all last  year smart wouldnt have started, and Theis shouldn't be starting this year. On top of that Kemba's health is a huge ?

On the other hand coby white and markkenan have looked great this year and are much younger, white is only in second year and dropped 36 last night and is avg. 18/5/5. markkenan is the ideal stretch 4 and Bulls declined to extend him. Porter would be great relief off the bench for tatum/brown and is a huge expiring

Bad deal for the Cs if we’re not getting Collins back.

Idk if I believe collins is a 4, I feel he is more of a 5. BUT I do like him as well. If atlanta would do a theis/smart trade for collins/snell that would work too but i dont think i like a thompson/collins pairing
