Kind of a pipe dream, but I'd love us to trade Rozier + other minor asset(s) for Mikal Bridges. Not sure whether the Suns would do it though. I mean, it's pretty unlikely that they 'll push for the playoffs this season. Assuming they like Rozier, they can wait a few months and sign him via free agency.
This has actually been a trade that I have been spouting for the past few months. I have to think the influx of wings and forwards on that team has made Bridges expendable.
Rozier for Bridges with maybe a second rounder or late first round pick could work for both sides.
Allows Brown, Smart, and Bridges/Tatum to alternate at the 1-3 spots for occasional fill in minutes. Plus I think Bridges could play the small ball 4 next to Williams.
That's an interesting idea.
The thing about a Rozier trade I keep asking is, What would the Celtics want in return? That is to say, What do they need? Maybe another rebounder but it would need to be someone significantly better than Aron Baynes, which isn't nothing, which probably means a package deal.
But I'd take Bridges, straight up, given the circumstances. Smart becomes the primary backup pg, Wannamaker gets more minutes, and when the Jabari Bird salary situation resolves itself probably look into a safety pg, maybe a buyout.
