I dont think this is fake

woj has also reported that Davis is a trade target for both Lakers and Celtics. Pretty interesting that the rivalry has come down to a potential bidding war between the 2 teams. I wonder If whoever wins the eventual auction will pull away in title count

Believable, but like I’ve been saying: if NOP can keep him happy past the deadline in February, he will be a Celtic. Honestly, if he’s there through the end of the season, I’d start calling Dell Demps pre-draft to see who they like with our picks as part of the trade.

Once we can legally trade for him, Ainge will put together a Godfather offer. Only issue I could see is matching salaries, but I’m sure they will find a way if the crux is worked out (I feel Yabu’s option was picked up for extra, expiring salary).

Truth is, nobody can match what we can offer without absolutely decimating their roster. Whatever we give up, we’d still have Irving, Hayward, and Horford, and some.

Tatum, Smart and picks will work just fine. Throwing in Williams will probably seal it as done.

I’m sure 29 franchises have attempted to trade for Davis “for years”.

I doubt very much that Demps has been exchanging offers for years. I mean, how many current Lakers have been on the roster “for years”?

But, Sheridan is generally full of crap, and any reporting that Davis might be traded to Boston this season is full of uninformed crap.

I think we’d have to do the trade after July 1, using next year’ssalaries. We’d have to come up with just over $22 million, I think. (“Matching” trades need to be within $5 million at that salary range I think).

Then throw Yabu in and it works

Don't see any reason that NOP would try to trade Davis in season.  There would be more feasible suitors in the offseason plus they'd know where every team's 2019 draft picks actually land.

Honest question, lets say it's summer of 2019, and the Pelicans decide to deal AD. The Lakers offer Ingram/Kuzma, Hart, Ball + some future pick (that's what most predictions and Lakers blog have as their "ballpark" trade offer for AD). Can we outbid the Lakers then?

It's tough. I think if they are willing to deal Kuzma instead of Ingram, it's advantage Lakers, but ultimately we'd probably have to deal Tatum in a trade package to make it more enticing for the Pelicans to accept (because honestly I think they'd view Kuzma more highly than Brown, and that's completely understandable). 

I unfortunately don't think Brown + Rozier + Williams(?) +  Kings Pick (Top-6, hopefully) + More Picks + Salary will be better than that hypothetical Lakers package, UNLESS you replace Brown with Tatum in said trade idea  :(

I will trade any player and any asset for Davis, just not Kyrie or Tatum. Include Tatum in a package for Davis and the Celtics are not winning a championship.

Brown, Hayward, King's pick, Grizzlies pick would be my best offer, and I'm not so sure other teams can't beat that.

I can’t see how Kyrie/Smart/Hayward/Horrford/Davis with Brown/Morris/Baynes/MLE is not championship caliber.

Because Hayward is not an NBA caliber player and Horford is old and declining fast.

I think Smart's gone in an AD trade, unless Rozier is actually a part of the trade through S&T, but we also have to find a way to get close to AD's salary in a trade.

To me, Tatum's untouchable for AD. Let another team give up a ton/overpay for AD if that's the case.
