Jimmy butler and kyrie are buddies.  Iím still a little concerned kyrie will bail after next season to go join a team with butler.

I guess that can give you a seed for a Kyrie/Towns swap

Why would he leave Boston for Minnesota??

Unless Butler and Kyrie both opt out to team-up Miami style somewhere

He did have Minnesota on his Trade List last June I believe.

That said, I find it hard to believe. There's no path for MIN to even get past Golden State or Houston at the moment, let alone win a championship. I think Kyrie wants to compete for a legit chance at a championship.

If anything, it feels like, while still slim, there's a better chance Butler gets dealt to Kyrie's team than there is Kyrie getting dealt to Butler's  :P

I'd be hesitant to do it, but I think you would have to at the end of the day. A core that involves KAT/Brown/Tatum/ Hayward is going to be in the hunt for a very long time.

Plus on a selfish note, watching that core compete with the Sixers core of Embiid/Simmons/Fultz(??)/2018 1st 4+ times a year for the next 7 or more years is something every Basketball fan dreams of.

Yes...when you've got a Rozier you've got to do an Irving for Towns swap.  Irving is the better weapon, but Towns is younger and has had less injury trouble..which balances the equation.  Towns is not an ideal defender but that's okay, neither is Irving.  As long as he's a good passer and team player then sign me up for this trade.

The only deal that would even make sense would be based around Kyrie. But KAT isn't getting traded anytime soon, and hopefully neither is Kyrie.
CB Mock Deadline - Minnesota Timberwolves
Kemba Walker / Tyus Jones / Aaron Brooks
Jimmy Butler / Jamal Crawford / Treveon Graham
Rodney Hood / Nic Batum / Marcus Georges Hunt
Taj Gibson / Nemanja Bjelica / Jonas Jerebko
KAT / Derrick Favors / Cole Aldrich
Picks - 2018 CHA 1st (Lotto protected), none out

Smh people are actually suggesting we trade Kyrie for Towns??

What's next, once we acquire Towns, Towns for Harden! Then Harden for Davis!  :P

No thanks. Awful defender. Unless he becomes a full time center I'd want no part of him

Yup, let's trade our best player (Kyrie) for an inferior player who plays a position we're already set at, and in the process create a roster imbalance that will force us to not be able to play our 5 best players to either start nor finish games.

Yup, Celtics fans done lost their [dang] minds.

I just want to see if these 10 guys can win a title.  I am fine with no trades going into next season

Kyrie, Brown, Hayward, Tatum, Horford
Rozier, Smart, Morris, Theis, Baynes

Don't see what he would bring to the table. I just watched highlights and all he do is hit tough shots. Those buckets will not always go in. Seems overrated o me.

  • Sometimes there's no sane reason for optimism.
I would totally do Kyrie for Towns and I am surprised the majority of Cs fans aren't on board. If you add in Aldrich and a minimum contract like Jones, then the trade is successful on trade machine.

Last year there were many people more enamored by Towns' potential over AD's. While I have always considered AD the ultimate prize, Towns would be an amazing piece to add to this roster and it would allow us to keep Rozier. Personally, I think a future of Towns+Rozier is better than just Kyrie. But I certainly won't complain if *all* we do is re-sign Kyrie to a max.
