For starters I don't think it's a priority to trade Rozier. We have a team assembled that can win it all. Rozier provides luxury depth, insurance for injuries and an escape if Irving decides to leave (which I really don't think so).

However, the demand for Rozier may never be higher than it is right now, since his role will diminish now that everybody is injury-free. A team that's looking for a good PG is Orlando. Morris is another guy who's minutes will be eaten and might get disgruntled. But maybe Orlando has more interest in a prospect like Yabusele? I'd be willing to throw in a pick to get Jonathan Isaac. He's got a lot of potential. Trading Morris and Rozier would get the Celtics out of the luxury tax.

Proposal:

To Boston: Jonathan Isaac
To Orlando: Terry Rozier, Marcus Morris or Guerschon Yabusele, '19 Celtics 1st or '19 Clippers 1st (prot.)

I think that ship has sailed. Isaac was deadly in summer league. Can’t see Orlando having any interest in trading him. Probably value him more at this point than Bamba for their future.

I wasn't aware of his achievements during summer league. I just really liked him from last year's draft. He came to my mind while I was looking for a young cheap player with potential who could be a nice return for Rozier and Rozier makes a lot of sense for Orlando. Maybe increase the bid.

Or what about Hernangomez (Denver)?

After signing Smart, I would consider trading Rozier for a promising big.  I don't know to what degree Issac qualifies as that as I have not seen him play all that much.  I don't see why we would need to offer more than Rozier + Yabusele; no Morris, no picks.

  • Sometimes there's no sane reason for optimism.
I have been pushing a Rozier for Isaac trade for a while - if we are trading Rozier - which is risky and a bummer since I probably like him a little more than Smart. I assume we would also sign Bird to hopefully semi-replicate the 15 or so minutes we need out of Rozier.

The deal makes all the sense in the world, but Orlando doesn’t seem too pressed to acquire a quality PG as they wouldn’t even take the IT show for low cost/risk.

Isaac is way more valuable than Rozier and scraps.

No shot Orlando even entertains this

Actually think the opposite. Isaac has proven nothing. Rozier led a team to the brink of the Finals. You need a lot more than Isaac. Lol...

Doesn’t matter what he has “proven”. He is probably their most coveted player now. Several podcasts said he was the best player in summer league by far.

He is not getting moved. Let it go.

IMO, Isaac is poised for a soph year breakout, whereas Rozier is poised for leveling off.  ::)

In any case, Orlando is not trading Isaac.

Completely agree.  Isaac is just entering his 2nd season and has way more upside than Rozier.

Yeah Isaac played really well in summer league.  I like his tools, and he could make a nice leap in his game.  Could be a high level role player kind of like Smart.  I’m not sure Orlando would let him go, but they really like Rozier too.  Interesting trade idea.  Rozier and Morris are more proven players so maybe Orlando has to throw in something else.

Several podcasts. Ok man. He played 27 freaking games last year. I like him fine but Rozier is a top-10ish PG..

PG:Tony Parker/Mo Williams
SG:Alec Burks/Manu Ginobili
SF:Al Farouq-Aminu/Jared Dudley/Tony Snell
PF:Dirk Nowitzki/JaMychal Green
C: Deandre Jordan/Roy Hibbert/Alex Len

Would you have traded Terry Rozier for the #1 overall pick this year? that pick had proved nothing.
