Utah sent Pliess and two 2nd rounders to phila for Kendall Marshall

Obviously not a huge trade, but what do you guys think?

26 Aug 2016 16:37:11
Utah did it for a salary dump, waiving Marshalls non guarenteed contract.
They already had some cap space, does this mean nothing or could it lead to a bigger move?

26 Aug 2016 16:42:29
Two seconds is too much to move a contract that small.

26 Aug 2016 16:51:49
Utah won, Waive Marshall and keep the picks.

26 Aug 2016 16:53:00
Utah had the rights to 4 second round picks in the upcoming 2017 draft. Hopefully at least one of these will go to Philly, if not two. Philly did not have any second rounders this year, good trade.

26 Aug 2016 17:03:36
I actually don't understand what phillys front office do?

26 Aug 2016 17:29:23
Thunderfan2 . Utah gave up two second rounders to sixers.

27 Aug 2016 01:01:46
Easy yes from philly. Very hinkie like actually. Really nothing for more nothing.

26 Aug 2016 04:15:29

Jazz acquire Crowder and Wall


small ball Wall-Hayward-Johnson-Crowder-Gobert would go toe to toe with GS

Celtics acquire Hood and Favors
improve shooting and their 2 bigs could dominate somehow


Wizards acquire Smart, Burks, Amir Johnson, BKN 1st 2017 and Jazz 1st 2017
tank and get another high pick

get 2 young wings and a vet big + a big pick in 2017 draft


26 Aug 2016 13:22:44
C's give up way too much to get Favors, who's a really nice player, but probably isn't even worth the potential first pick in the draft that is the Nets pick.

26 Aug 2016 00:09:10
Nuggets/ Jazz

Nuggets - Hayward.

Jazz - Chandler, Nurkic, Beasley, 2 2nds.

Nuggets consolidate assests.

Jazz land a leader and Will make the playoffs for sure in 17/ 18.

26 Aug 2016 01:57:27
Other than Nurkic, who plays Gobert's position, what in this is attractive for the Jazz?

No from them.

26 Aug 2016 02:23:52
Nuggets land a leader**.

26 Aug 2016 02:46:45
how is Jazz landing a leader when they lose their leader. lol.

26 Aug 2016 02:56:57
Utah would think this is a joke. How do any of those players improve their team or make the starting lineup.

25 Aug 2016 08:38:37
OK don't blow me up here

But how about straight up
Boston - Utah
Smart for Hood

Utah gets a D minded combo guard and Boston improves shooting / scoring.

25 Aug 2016 09:53:14
Utah already has hill and exum no need for smart.

25 Aug 2016 11:47:00
Cs not doing this.

25 Aug 2016 12:34:53
Hood is considerably better then smart though and provides shooting that they need.

25 Aug 2016 12:53:27
I don't hate it, but I don't see the point of it either.

25 Aug 2016 13:13:28
i don't think this is a bad trade.
I like this one for boston and it's not bad for Utah.

25 Aug 2016 14:39:45
Utah doesn't want smart. They enough pgs.

26 Aug 2016 05:27:36
I was thinking that UTA could use Smart for his D. Since the West is absolutely loaded with at the PG position. I don't see Hill or Exum playing shut down D and the addition of a third quality guard in the rotation never hurts.

25 Aug 2016 04:57:41
Okc dnt make a move this year next year
2017 season free agency pick up
Omar Casspi sf. 12 million 3 yr
Karl Landry pf 14 million 2 yr

Trade Kanter, singler, morrow maybe throw in Payne or couple first rnd picks to jazz for Gordon and withey

Then sign Oladipo 65 million for 3 years
Roberson 15 million for 3 years both 3rd year player option
Lock up Adams 60 million for 4 yrs

Russ, price
Oladipo, Roberson
Gordon, Casspi
Landry, Sabonis
Adams, Johnson.

25 Aug 2016 05:13:44
I think about everything on this is bad.

25 Aug 2016 05:23:13
Lol NBA bro everything someone comes up with your comments are negative like for real bro open up or leave man. How is signing landry bad? How is signing Casspi as a back up sf bad he could start on most teams. How is resigning Oladipo over 20 mill a year bad? Like what are you talking about?! Is okc gona make all these moves no but do i think bring in Landry is more realistic then bringing in millsap or Blake griffin yes! Do i think throwing out young scorers and draft picks okc could land Hayward maybe and how in the heck is Hayward bad?! And how is it bad them all playing around Russ! Bro get your mind right.

25 Aug 2016 05:30:00
Only thing that is far fetched is landing Hayward signing a Casspi, Landry and resigning almost everyone on our team like Roberson, Adams is easy Oladipo on the other hand not sure yet but don't see how that starting 5 is a bad thing and i think it all could be pretty easy to do besidea getting Hayward.

25 Aug 2016 06:46:53
Okay 1st of all I'm definitely not negative all the time, that's probably hamburger.
2nd, Landry is definetely not worthy of a starting power forward on a contender.
3rd, I said ABOUT everything, not everything
4th, the Casspi signing is good
5th, the Oladipo signing is alright
6th, the Jazz would never do that trade
7th, Adams will get more money than that probably.

25 Aug 2016 06:48:09
And btw about Hamburger too lol, he is very negative a lot but he is also realistic most of the time.

25 Aug 2016 12:36:53
All players get 5 year deals.
Hayward trade is a joke.
Signings are redundant.

25 Aug 2016 12:53:57
Thank you nba. But seriously. You're being a downer. I'm sure Adams will get less than mozgov. It's just realistic. Bro. Lol.

25 Aug 2016 13:08:32
someone is gona pay more then 15 million a year for Adams and Adams takes then be my guest i wouldn't go from paying him a damn minimum basically to and damn near maximum that's ignorant and i'm saying Landry just so u have space to sign Hayward if u could sign him if not go after Millsap and Andre Iguodala.

25 Aug 2016 13:39:47
Ok, here's the problems:

Utah traded Kanter, and the breakup wasn't nice. They wouldn't take him back. Also, it's just not enough for Hayward.

Someone is going to throw a ton of money at Adams (possibly max) . His play in the playoffs this year was impressive. Even if that's a flash in the pan, someone will pay him 20+ per year.

Roberson might get more too, though I'm not as confident in that one.

Oladipo wants a max deal. He'll probably get it.

Landry is an overpay, but it's fine. I wouldn't pay him that much though, I'd rather just start sabonis and see what you've got with him.

25 Aug 2016 14:02:47
Actually miller jazz had given okc a offer because they want Kanter bk because they don't have a post game but only person okc wants is Gordon.

25 Aug 2016 14:54:39
Where's the "offer" they have given the Thunder? No way they trade their best player to get a guy back who hates their organization.

25 Aug 2016 15:26:35
Favors seems like a down low player. And you should learn the definition of ignorant. Because clearly you don't know it.

So signing a guy from a rookie contract to a max is ignorant? No it isn't. It's called being a smart gm with a massive cap boom. You admit that Adams will get great offers. You admit the thunder should keep him. Then go it's ignorant to pay to keep him. Makes no sense actually. kinda ignorant.

25 Aug 2016 15:27:30
Not to mention favors and gobert will start ahead of kanter. So the Jazz trade their best player for a backup big man? Well thought out.

25 Aug 2016 16:10:13
King man i swear all yal are a joke i said they made a offer for Kanter because they want Kanter because miller said they don't want kanter back i never said they offerwd Gordon i said that's the only person OKC wants wtf bro i need to start talking to yal like my kids or something.

25 Aug 2016 16:18:32
Just want to put this out there all yal do know this is suppose to be a fun website talk to other people about trades and rumors you wish would happen or that is rumores to happen man everyone get off your high horse and have fum with it. If your so damn good at knowing what will happen or what should happen with all these NBA teams then go work for them! If not stop being so damn negative on everyones post! I read through everyones post 9 at 10 people are saying " nope ", " that's a joke " blah blah blah man let people have fun with this or keep your negativity to yourself just because your not happy with your life.

25 Aug 2016 17:33:49
I don't think Hayward is the only player OKC would want, if I were them I'd take Hood, Favors, and probably even Burks.

25 Aug 2016 21:28:12
I mean machaprince you are the one that took it so seriously. like you said its about having fun so why do you need to take something some random person on the internet said to heart and cry about it. Just chill and not let people on the internet effect you.

25 Aug 2016 22:10:53
Y'all know bro. People can disagree bro. You don't need to call em ignorant bro and to get lost bro. But yeah bro. Because it's a message bord bro, people can give their opinion. If you want to be coddled and told everything you say is perfect. Talk to mom bro. Otherwise bro. Deal with it bro. Because you are wrong means everyone is upset with life? That's ignorant bro.

25 Aug 2016 23:21:16
;) who you callin bro? . Buddy!

25 Aug 2016 23:36:01
Lol. What Larry said is spot on.

26 Aug 2016 00:00:22
This was a joy to read.

25 Aug 2016 23:33:15
Oh, and I don't know where you're at, but I'm in America Jack. And if that means anything, it means that you say any dumb thing that comes to your stupid head in any psychotic fashion your pharmaceutical drug addled mind can translate thru your ignorant mouth. And I can respond in kind. We call that maintaining a mature open dialogue.

24 Aug 2016 04:29:34
Jazz/ Wizards/ Celtics

To UTA - J Wall, A Bradley, J Jerebko
* get a star point and seriously challenge Western teams


To WAS - D Exum, M Smart, D Favors, 1st from BOS (own) and 1st from UTA 2017
* this is a very good return for Wall if they decide to rebuild


To BOS - G Hayward, M Gortat
* get Steven's player in Hayward and a center to start alongside Horford


24 Aug 2016 05:25:09
Celtics need to give more towards Utah.

24 Aug 2016 05:31:49
I like the general premise but I think Boston is getting a bit too much (Hayward is one of most underrated players in the league) and needs to throw Utah and maybe Washington a little more. Also, I think maybe swap Crowder for Bradley so Hayward can play sf which I think suits him better and Crowder gives the Jazz more flexibility as he can play 2-4.

Also, to complete the story and cause Utah has a rubbish ton of pgs send Mack (another ex Butler player under Stevens) to Boston with a 2nd rounder or something small coming back.

24 Aug 2016 06:51:46
This could work either

BOS get Hayward, Gortat, WAS 1st top 12 protected

WAS get Favors, BKN 1st 2017, Exum, UTA 1st 2017

UTA get Wall, Amir Johnson and Bradley.

24 Aug 2016 13:17:13
I like the second trade option on this thread. Only potential change is not having Utah's first going to washington. They are already giving up exum favors and hayward.

21 Aug 2016 17:54:19
Clippers-Jazz midseason trade if Clippers are underperforming and CP3 is a threat to leave in free agency

Clippers get George Hill, Alec Burks, Jazz 2017 1st rd pick, Warriors 2017 2nd rd pick, and Thunder 2018 1st rd pick
-Get something rather than losing CP3 for nothing

Jazz get Chris Paul
-This makes the team a true threat to the Warriors

Paul/ Mack/ Neto
Hood/ Exum
Hayward/ Johnson/ Ingles
Favors/ Diaw/ Lyles
Gobert/ Withey/ Bolomboy.

21 Aug 2016 18:17:44
It won't happen because CP3 would want a larger market. Already happened in his youth, now he's edging prime without a ring, he'd only leave to go to a top 5 team in a bigger market.

21 Aug 2016 18:38:17
i don't think CP3 would leave the Clippers, but that Jazz team could be good.

21 Aug 2016 18:38:20
If CP3 went to the Jazz, I think they'd be a top 5 team. If I'm him, I'm just trying to at least make the conference finals at this point.

21 Aug 2016 19:31:15
That would be no threat to the Warriors or Cavs.

21 Aug 2016 21:51:24
If Clippers felt they were going to lose CP3 I'm positive they could get a better offer than that. I'm not sure how CP3 would feel about going to Utah but from a basketball perspective I think the Jazz would be a rather attractive option with a relatively young team looking to take the next step and really would have all ready if not for their lack of a pg. The only place I'd rather go from a purely basketball perspective than Utah is San Antonio and maybe Indiana. There aren't really any big market teams that need a pg and are in a position to contend. I assume CP3 would prefer contending over going to another big city (otherwise he'd just stay in LA) .

I guess maybe the Knicks could make sense since Rose is a FA next summer. But I don't think they'd be as good of a team as Paul on the teams I previously mentioned nor have the assets to make an attractive offer for him and still be attractive.

22 Aug 2016 00:12:58
Yeah they might be good @NBA, I'm not saying that. But really could they get past San Antonio, Golden State and Cleveland? No. He'd have to go to a team with top 10 talent in a bigger market. He's proven he's not into smaller markets, and Utah is even smaller than New Orleans.

22 Aug 2016 21:45:54
I will pass least not at that price
Can't give George Hill, Alex Burks and
Jazz pick round 1 in 2017
Warriors 2nd rd pick in 2017
OKC 1st rd pick in 2018

I stop at the OKC pick in 2018! Reason
No Durrent this season and after this season maybe no Westbrook therefore making that OKC round 1 pick in 2018 could be sweet pick.

20 Aug 2016 10:04:48

IT, Hunter and/ or Young for Hayward


Bradley and a 2017 2nd for Noel.

20 Aug 2016 11:51:00
Utah says no to that! IT and garbage isn't getting a star
I don't know why C's fans are big on this AB for NN trade, AB was 3rd, THIRD for the best defender in the league this past year and that's real hard for a guard and on top of that is more then solid offensive player, an elite spot up shooter, although cannot create or dribble to save his life and is undersized. Whereas NN cannot score outside 7 feet from the basket and a defender that didn't getting any votes if I remember correctly. If you ask me I'd rather a dominant defensive guard for the modern NBA, and AB fits the bill. (I personally think IT for Noel and Covington is a gr8 deal though would love to see it happen, if you can't tell I rate defence lol)

20 Aug 2016 12:06:55
No on the first. IT is the one guy the Celtics can't afford to lose.
On the second, I would sub Smart for Bradley. Boston needs offense.

20 Aug 2016 14:54:55
Bradley for Noel from the C's standpoint is a no. Both are quality defenders, but Noel's offense is nowhere close to as good as Bradley's.

20 Aug 2016 17:03:45
Boston says no way on the first one. Isiah Thomas is the only reason that team is relavent.

Sixers might need a little more. How about James young and Bradley for Noel. That's not a big loss for Boston as I hear they are considering cutting young anyway.

21 Aug 2016 04:00:03
Sixers might need a little more than Bradley for Noel. ha, ha, ha, ol TreGib's at it again.

21 Aug 2016 12:13:52
Noel would be more valuable to Boston then Bradley.

21 Aug 2016 14:14:28
As a Sixers fan, I would do Noel for Bradley immediately. Not sure Boston would, though.

16 Aug 2016 13:30:28
Jazz get Gibson Holiday
Bulls get Rose Bolomboy Pleiss
Knicks get Rondo Burks

Rose/ Canaan/ Grant
Wade/ Valentine/ Dinwiddie
Butler/ McDermott/ Snell
Mirotic/ Felicio/ Bolomboy
Lopez/ Portis/ Pleiss

Hill/ Neto/ Mack
Hayward/ Exum/ Holiday
Hood/ JJohnson/ C. Johnson
Favors/ Lyles/ Ingles
Gobert/ Diaw/ Gibson

Rondo/ Jennings/ Randle
Lee/ Burks/ Vujacic
Melo/ Thomas/ Ndour
Porzingis/ Kuzminskas/ Hernangomez
Noah/ O'Quinn/ Plumlee.

16 Aug 2016 17:18:09
You get about 8, s because you'll need them more then me.

16 Aug 2016 18:10:33
Are you really proposing that Derrick Rose goes back to the Bulls right after they traded him? What?

16 Aug 2016 23:13:19
So knicks get rondo and burks for rose.

11 Aug 2016 22:22:40
Okc and Utah

Roberson and a 1st rd pick and a 2nd rd pick for Gordan Hayward

Kanter for Faried.

12 Aug 2016 02:14:46
Salary cap.

12 Aug 2016 02:28:28
The Utah trades is a joke right?

12 Aug 2016 04:16:41
Both deals are awful

12 Aug 2016 05:39:52
Why would the thunder do this, they will need scoring most without Durant, not rebounding, westbrook and Adam's can handle the teams full load.

12 Aug 2016 12:39:11
Noel if healthy = Tyson Chandler.

13 Aug 2016 20:01:39
Noel's absolute best case scenario ceiling is Tyson chandler. More likely he's as good as robin Lopez from what I've seen. A top 20 center, but not top 10.

05 Aug 2016 04:16:19
Cavs Jazz Kings

Cavs receive

Jazz receives

Kings receive

05 Aug 2016 06:07:42
Jazz are getting robbed here.

05 Aug 2016 08:03:09
What? I think Love is still so much better than Favors. And a better fit with Gobert.

05 Aug 2016 08:30:47
I like this trade for Utah

Love+ Gobert is a better combo than Favors + gobert.

05 Aug 2016 12:59:40
Lyles also (I think lynes is lyles) he is much younger and serves as a good backup to Gobert/ favors, and he plays a similar brand of ball to love but more physical/ tougher defender and so much younger. I think favors is far too often underrated, IMO you can make a case for him for top 6 PF right now, still young and improving too. Then Burks missed a bunch of games last season, but he could start at the 2 or 3 for 50% of the league. So all in all 2 starters and a good prospect for love and an old gay, when they already have JJ. With the jazz's current roster I wouldn't be surprised at all to see them finish top 4 in west, with love I can't see it, they have no depth in the front court with that trade.

05 Aug 2016 13:03:03
I like this as well. The kings could be the only team that would be out.

03 Aug 2016 11:24:49
Hawks if they were to trade Paul Millsap, which trade would be the best?

Trade #1.Hawks/ Magic

Hawks get: Serge Ibaka and a 2nd round pick
(Ibaka is kind of like Al Horford was but actually plays PF and can still block shots and be a stretch 4 he isn't better then Millsap but he would fit better with Dwight and he is a little younger)
Magic gets: Paul Millsap
(Magic would get a good veteran who can do a little bit of everything and be a leader on a young team that's rebuilding)

Trade #2 Hawks/ Nuggets

Hawks get: Keneth Feried, Dorrell Arthur and Gary Harris
(Hawks get a great rebound/ hustle guy in Faried and may even develop a jump shot with the Hawks coaching staff, they also get a veteran PF off the bench in Arthur who can shoot the 3 and a young shooting guard Gary Harris, who could grow in this system. )

Nuggets get: Paul Millsap, THJ and Mike Muscala
(Nuggets who are also kind of rebuilding, would again get a nice veteran player that does everything to lead that young team, they get a still young shooting guard off the bench and a nice role player in Muscala

Trade #3 Hawks/ Jazs

Hawks get: Derrick Favors, Alec Burks
(with Trey Lyles emerging in Utah, Favors could be traded soon he would be a nice fit with Dwight and can shoot a nice 15 ft jump shot, block and rebound. They also get a young guard who can start or come off the bench. )

Jazz gets: Paul Millsap, THJ
(Jazz would get Paul Millsap back and potentially be a playoff team in the western conference, would fit nicely with Gobert, Hayward, Hood and the former Hawk legend Shelvin Mack, or and there's Joe Johnson. )

These aren't in my order or anything I just typed them down whenever they came into my head. I know it's a lot but I'm bored and it's late. I like the Jazz trade the best but I personally don't want Millsap traded but you never know anything can happen. What do y'all think? Trade 1, 2 or 3.

03 Aug 2016 11:39:50
i can't see any team doing this.
Millsap is a great player, but he's 31 years old. So why would those team trade younger players for him.

Only contenders or teams that will clear capspace next year will trade for him.

I also think he's a good combo with D12, so why trade him? They will never get equal value for him.

04 Aug 2016 04:50:31
31 is not that old like why is everyone saying that people usually start diminishing at around 35. Mills has a lot of heart and plays hard every game. He avgs 18 pts 9 rebs leads PF in steals other then Draymond I think. He has actually gotten better since he was at Utah. Also I said I personally don't want him traded but his name has been floating around for a while now.

05 Aug 2016 16:53:34
I actually love this trade. Would love it in Denver but maybe they would not want two 4's instead Harris, Fareid and Joffrey.

02 Aug 2016 00:23:23
Jazz get: Rudy Gay, Kelly Olynyk and 2018 Nets pick

Kings get: 2018 Grizzlies pick, 2019 Clippers pick, RJ Hunter, Demetrius Jacksoj and James Young

Celtics get: Rudy Gobert and Ben McLemore.

02 Aug 2016 04:47:48
Jazz don't need Gay. They have plenty of good wings. Hayward hood johnson burks ingles.

01 Aug 2016 23:59:01

Utah - R. Gay

Sac - A. Burks and 2nd rd pick.

31 Jul 2016 20:04:29

Bos send Amir Johnson and 1st round pick. Recieve Robin Lopez


Chi sends Lopez and 1st round pick.
Recieve Derrick Favors


Utah trades Derrick Favors
Recieve Amir Johnson (cut) 2 1sts


31 Jul 2016 20:40:20
The valuation of the trade can vary significantly depending on which 1sts those are but in general so long as Celtics aren't giving up a brooklyn pick I like it for them, I'm not sure what picks Bulls have but if its their own they're getting a steal. The Jazz aren't getting a bad return on Favors but for a team that is looking to turn the corner I don't think they want to give up a young starter for two 1sts even if he isn't the greatest fit alongside Gobert.

If you could find another team to take on the draft picks and give Jazz back a quality player I could see it happening (i. e. send them to Nuggets for Gallinari and Arthur or something) .

Or maybe Bulls give Mirotic or Portis up instead of their 1st so Jazz get a contributor in addition to a draft pick.

31 Jul 2016 23:43:44
Only if this isn't the Nets pick.

01 Aug 2016 23:32:38
A. Johnson is better suited for Boston than R. Lopez is.

31 Jul 2016 14:53:18
Grizzlies jazz nuggets

Grizzlies hayward faried

Jazz 1st grizz tony allen

Nuggets vince carter randolph

Hayward make grizzlies championship contender

Conley hayward parsons faried gasol

Jazz get a defensive wing give experience

Hill allen hood favors gobert

Nuggets snag 2 vets.

31 Jul 2016 15:21:01
Jazz get robbed.

31 Jul 2016 15:32:42
This is terrible

31 Jul 2016 16:37:46
Jazz get robbed indeed.

31 Jul 2016 17:43:28
Grizzlies robbing everybody. Jazz giving up their best player for a past his prime never could play offense 34yr old isn't a good move for a young team on the rise (If grizzlies stay healthy they should be a good team so they're pick won't be great) .

Similarly it doesn't make sense to give up a solid piece like Faried for two past their prime veterans. Nuggets are a young team with a bunch of assets and should be consolidating them for youngish talent that can grow with the team not splitting it into two aging veterans.

30 Jul 2016 16:08:28
Suns/ Jazz/ Celtics

Suns - Hayward.

Bledsoe/ Booker/ Hayward/ Bender/ Len shows a ton of promise.

Jazz - Brown, Knight, Grizzlies 2019 1st. 2 2nd round picks from Phx, 1 2nd round pick from Bos.

Jazz rebuild but Hood, Exum, Gobert, Lyles, Brown, Knight and most likely a lottery pick in 2017 is an excellent core (although they are signing vets so this won't happen)

Celtics - Favors, Warren.

Thomas/ Bradley/ Crowder/ Favors/ Horford is the 2nd best team in the east and they keep the brooklyn picks.

This isn't realistic my question is do you think it's a fair trade. if not why?

30 Jul 2016 17:48:40
Jazz went through a rebuilding process in order to be in the spot where they are now. Why tear it down again?

30 Jul 2016 18:32:44
I don't think that is enough to interest the Jazz to rebuild. Brown and Knight are a downgrade from Hayward and Favors and the picks aren't good.

Jazz already went through a major rebuild moving on from Deron Williams, Millsap and Al Jefferson. They have decent young pieces but have been treading water for a bit trying to find a pg. I don't think Hill is the answer but they have good pieces and I don't think they break up this team before they at least see what they can do together. They should compete for a playoff spot and still are young and growing. This trade doesn't improve them enough to take a step back.

I like the trade Utah should keep hayward and trade favors. Lyles is the future on how every team wants to play have a stretch four that can pick and roll and shoots three's. Lyles and gobert awasome combination.

Tregib when someone post Bledsoe for Okafor you think it's terrible but Winslow for Bledsoe is a no go?

Hayw ard is going to be a free agent next year, i don't think Celtics should offer much for him. He's going to ask a max contract, so he's going to lock their capspace if they do this.
And Hayward alone is not going to bring them a ring.

If Hayward wants out. The Griz pick is more than enough to give

The only free agents worth giving up value are Westbrook and Griffin (young enough and MVP canidate), if they confirm they want to stay.

Utah - Amir Johnson, Jae Crowder, James Young
Bos - Gordon Hayward
NBA trade machine approved.

I don't like trading Crowder for Hayward.
Crowder is on a reasonalbe conttract and i rather trade him for other reasonable contracts. (Butler, Cousins, . )
Hayward is a free agent next year, so if Boston wants him, they should sign him for free, because he's going to be expensive to keep (get)

Don't think it's that big an upgrade especially when they could potentially sign Hayward next summer. Crowders cheap contract gives Celtics a lot of versatility.

26 Jul 2016 16:59:52
What does Hayward do better than Crowder other than score? My answer would be nothing. Crowder is the better defender, rebounder and can also match up well when we decide to go small with him at the 4, Hayward can't. So to add an other starter to the trade just doesn't seem like a good deal for the Celtics. Young is just a throw in and is going to be out of the league in a year or two anyways.

And as the others said Hayward will be a free agent and we could get him then.

Agree that Boston should wait for free agency since they have a leg up with Stevens being there, but to say Crowder is close to Hayward is delusional.

Like I asked in my response. What does Hayward do better than Crowder other than score?

27 Jul 2016 17:42:45
Scoring, Passing. With Steven's Hayward would be a 20/ 6/ 5 guy.

Bucks/ Jazz

Moose for Neto, Diaw, Ingles.

- Bucks add vet experience and better 3 point shooters

-Jazz do no seem willing to trade Hayward and will need to add more impact players to be in the playoff hunt.

25 Jul 2016 03:05:40
That could be a steal for the Jazz if they don't have Gobert and Favors. Since they have those 2 better players i can see them keeping Diaw to add experience.

23 Jul 2016 04:33:08
Boston trades: Jaylen Brown, Jae Crowder
Jazz trade: Gordon Hawyard.

23 Jul 2016 10:43:36
Hayward is a great fit for Boston, but i think they say no.
Crowder is on a reasonable contract and J Brown is a young talent.
Hayward is going to ask a max contract next year, so that will lock Boston.
So they better keep Crowder and brown an go after another free agent next year or sign Hayward in free agency.

23 Jul 2016 18:59:46
No Crowder for Haywood. Brown, 2 2nd rd picks, Young and Hunter.
