Just caught Woj on the Steven A Smith show and was asked what Boston might do at deadline..
To sum it up he thinks they will look for bench help.. a scorer and a big... no huge changes ... but he did name Tyrke Evans as a possibility ... short segment
I feel like a lot of people will disagree with me on this, but I would trade our own first for him. It is going to be at best, the 26th pick in the draft. We will most likely have the Lakers pick and other picks upcoming and already have a ton of young players we can't get minutes for.
I think it's a no brainer to offer that pick to secure a talent like that.
I would rather offer Memphis a player like Morris and the Celtics 2018 pick for Evans. Memphis would likely consider this because Tyreke is probably going to command a deal for much higher than they are willing to pay.
Then turn attention to Dallas and use the DPE on Noel. Dallas is out of the playoff hunt for all intensive purposes, and I think they are doing a smaller scale Okafor-job to Noel. Seems like he's been "hurt" for a lot longer than he should, and at this point, Dallas playing him is only going to allow him to inflate his contract demands. Maybe better off to clear the cap space and get some future picks and a player like Yabu in return. So, DPE, Yabu, 2nd rounder for Noel.
New depth chart is:
Tyreke is capable of spot starts at the 2/3. We finally have a scoring 6th man as an option. A lot less of the Smart/Rozier sharing the floor units, that kills the offensive flow. And a pure 2nd unit lineup would still have Evans, who can legitimately create his own shot in any phase of the game.
Noel shores up the big rotation with a larger frame than Morris, who is seems to just be playing out of position for our rotations. Noel is a much more capable rebounder, and allows Horford to play his natural position for the entire game, sharing Center minutes with Baynes.
