wonder who's pushing to the New Orleans Advocate to make singe increase his bid https://www.theadvocate.com/new_orleans/sports/pelicans/article_90806f70-72bb-11e9-9b7f-4fc4c0ba000d.html


The Celtics’ flameout in the postseason may have reduced the possibility of the Pelicans trading Anthony Davis to Boston, according to Scott Kushner of The New Orleans Advocate. A package of forward Jayson Tatum and a handful of the Celtics’ first-round draft picks would have been considered a fair return for Davis, who can become a free agent after next season. However, Tatum regressed in his second season and struggled during the postseason, Kushner continues. Boston’s incentive to acquire Davis has diminished with the likely departure of Kyrie Irving and the lack of enough quality pieces around Davis after a potential trade to make a championship run, Kushner adds.

It still didn't stopped the Mavs for trading for Harrison Barnes and signing him for max after his abysmal Finals performance.

So going to a second round team which has a need that David would fill makes less sense than going to say the lakers or knicks?

I am not going to get my hopes too high on Davis, but this is nothing but speculation.

if new orleans makes decisions based upon a 4 game sample instead of tatum's entire body of work, well, they are indeed stupid.

Celtics fans need to get used to the fact that Tatum and Brown are both being sent to New Orleans.   The Celtics aren't going to let this slip through their hands.  You have to do what it takes to put two players the level of Davis and Kyrie together when the opportunity is there.

I think it will be Tatum, Smart and Yabu, plus picks for Davis. Works in trade machine and It's what New Orleans said they wanted. A young player with super star potential  and a good role player and picks. It's a fair trade.

I won't be surprised if New Orleans pushes for more knowing the Celtics may have pinned themselves in a bit of a corner.  Keeping Smart still leaves the C's with a really good piece.

If we start next season with no Kyrie and no other star, and just the kids, the last few years of building towards this moment will have been a failure.  It'd be great to keep one of Tatum/Brown, but if it cost both you have to do it.

Somebody may do this. Someone else may do that.

I heard that Kyrie changed ketchup brands and that this change may indicate that he's switching teams as well.

Someone PM me when some actual thing actually happens.

Unless Philly entertains throwing Ben Simmons into a deal, no other team has a more quality offer than the Celtics.

I guess it depends on the results of the lottery, though.

Our failure increases these chances IMO:
- bigger sense of urgency by our management
- AD would rather be here when seen as a messiah than a Durant like filler on a title/finals team
- Now Griffin is there, someone sane that can be reason with in trade talks, and we still have the combo of quality & quantity of assets.
