How in a world have Spurs got better?!
3-team trade:Kyrie to MinnesotaWiggins and SAC pick (and Yabusele for salary matching purposes thanks to ADís trade kicker) to New OrleansDavis to CelticsMinnesota gets Kyrie to pair with Butler, and the Bird rights to both.New Orleans gets a potential franchise player just starting his second deal and a pick with high potential to be in the top 5.Celtics get Davis.
Given AD's talent and salt's point above -- my family, friends, career aspirations, physical well-being, and box set of all 7 seasons of the Gilmore Girls.
If he is willing to commit to resign and stay with the C's long term, pretty much anything that's not bolted down. I'll assume Kyrie stays on a new contract or leaves, so its next offseason and its all legal.You need to keep "enough" to contend and not put yourself in the NOP's situation where you don't have a title team around him, but I don't think any individual piece is unmovable. Build the package around Kyrie? Sure. Build it around Horford/picks, sure. Build it around Hayward/picks, sure. Build it around Marcus/Brown/picks, sure.If I was sending them Tatum though, they wouldn't be getting anything more than other salary to make the deal legal.
I do not understand any consideration at all being given to trading Gordon Hayward ......It would be a huge slap in the face of Hayward - he leaves a franchise where he is loved and highly valued to sign with Boston. He does so partly to reunite with Brad Stevens. He is a great player who wants to be here long-term - unlike another star player we currently have.It would give Danny and the Celtics yet another black eye for their treatment of players. You don't work hard to recruit a big-time free agent and get him to leave a very good situation and then turn around and trade him. Other free agents around the league would view the Celtics in a harsh light and be uninterested in coming here (Anthony Davis himself criticized Ainge publicly for the way he treated Isaiah Thomas).Hopefully even Danny is not that ruthless - he mistreats enough players and it is going to come back to hurt him and the Celtics franchise.
