TRADE IDEA: Rozier FOR Sabonis + 2018 Indiana 2nd Rounder
1. This is assuming Ainge reaches an extension with Smart at a very reasonable rate, and decides to "sell high" on Rozier since he doesn't expect the C's will be able to keep him after NEXT season since he could command a ton elsewhere.
2. We could add Sabonis to the front court with Horford and Theis, and I'm assuming we keep ONE of Monroe/Baynes, so whoever leaves ultimately gets replaced by Sabonis in a sense (who is just 21 years old and still on his rookie contract for 2 more seasons).
Now I wouldn't mind at all if we just keep Scary Terry for next season as great depth while making our title run with a (hopefully) healthy team, and I would actually love if we could keep BOTH Smart + Rozier long term (even if it meant going well into the luxury tax), but realistically I think between Rozier and Smart, Ainge probably keeps Smart primarily because his market won't be as high, and he honestly has that KG-Mentality and makes those "winning plays" that teams need to make to go far in playoffs.
Idk... it's going to be a real tough decision to make and I hate to even suggest an idea that involves trading Scary Terry (during this current playoff run), but... what do you guys think?
I say NO still, but if not this particular idea and you think we should still sell high on Rozier, anyone have any other trade ideas?
