Mayo for Bradley.
No thank you.
I would do it in a millisecond.
An undersized SG who's ideal as a sixth man for a 22 year old who is probably the best defender at the guard position in the league?
Even if you think it's a wash, consider that the Cs would have to pay Mayo BIG BUCKS after this season to keep him.
Not worth it.
Bradley's shorter than Mayo. Mayo's a better player than Bradley right now.
Not saying I'd do the trade, but man, Bradley is really overrated on this board.
Again, even if Mayo is a better / more valuable player than Bradley right now -- the Celtics would have to pay him a TON of money (much more than he's worth) to keep him around after this season.
I think you are exagerating the amount the celtics would have to pay Mayo. He's not going to get a max deal. More along the lines of Jeff Green money imo. Bradley will also demand good money when his deal runs out. It's a matter of who you prefer to pay.
I have no interest in paying Mayo 36 million over 4 years. In truth, he'll probably get closer to 4/40 or 4/45.
Bradley, unless he has a breakout year scoring 15+ pts a game, will likely make closer to 4/20 to 4/30. Defensive specialists don't get paid big bucks. But I'd still rather have Bradley on my team than Mayo.
Bradley also is on a nice rookie contract for another couple of seasons.
