    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    I'd love LaVine or LeVert (ironically, LaVine has more Vert), but the pick/player cost will be astronomical for either. Just don't see it happening. Finding a way to squeeze a guy into the TPE is one thing. Sending multiple firsts or actual rotation players for a guy (or both) means that you...

    Payton Pritchard drafted #26 overall

    He looks like a guy who can do what Wanamaker does and maybe generate looks off the dribble too. Lower floor, higher ceiling. Will probably hide him against second units for a while, and he should be fine.

    Carry on my Hayward Son: Gordon to Charlotte for 4 years, $120M

    I agree with all of this. Additionally, "fucking the poodle" will slide next to "screwing the pooch" in the lexicon. Thanks for that.

    Carry on my Hayward Son: Gordon to Charlotte for 4 years, $120M

    This may be a dumb question but how does using/not using the TPE before/during this season affect a "reset". If we're trying to escape bigtime repeater penalties, then this is the year to do it, right? If that's true, wouldn't the plan be to pass on using the TPE unless THAT GUY is available...

    Payton Pritchard drafted #26 overall

    It is because you liked one of the remaining guys? I was kind of hoping for Terry, but mine is an uninformed opinion. Clearly Danny wasn't interested in him or Bane, Carey, Flynn, etc.

    Carry on my Hayward Son: Gordon to Charlotte for 4 years, $120M

    You're forgetting Marcus there. Marcus was Gordon Hayward for much of last year. I'm not sure why this year would be any different. Teague and Pritchard are BH2 and BH3 respectively. edit: ...when Kemba plays

    Carry on my Hayward Son: Gordon to Charlotte for 4 years, $120M

    And he didn't even want to offer those. If it's a salary dump, it won't take much. At least with the TPE, he'll have flexibility.

    NBA Accounting: S&T, TPE, and Gordon

    Presti is a savant, but there is no way that Boston sends a first for a TPE. And I can't imagine that anyone in Charlotte wants to staple a first to Batum for the privilege of giving Hayward 4×30. Edit: and they don't need to move Batum anyway. They can still stretch

    Carry on my Hayward Son: Gordon to Charlotte for 4 years, $120M

    I think that it's premature to forecast (or wishcast) the player that might be brought in on a TPE. Don't get me wrong--I expect Danny to use it. But its will be situation- dependent. If a guy falls into their lap as part of a sell-off at the trading deadline, and that guy is very impactful...

    Same. I was excited to see what happened in Houston last year too. There should be some stupid high scoring games with Atlanta next year. Seems like a good idea when you're trying to rebuild a program. Get people excited!

    Just want to say thanks to you and the other capologists/CBA experts in here. This is great stuff.

    Celtics 20-21 Roster Construction

    Smart, Brown, and Tatum will start 90% of the games, barring significant injuries. That's all we know. Kemba may not even play any more than 70% of the games and will give up some starts even in some of those. Teague and some of the kids will get starts here and there. I think that everyone...

    Tatum got the bag(5 years, $195 million)

    Oh yeah. My kid is 17, and it's part of their game already. Not that he needs it against me.

    I'm going to pretend that we're not talking about bringing Scary Terry back.

    Tatum got the bag(5 years, $195 million)

    Yeah I came around on it for this reason. It's such a specialized skill. If it were easy to do at high volume and efficiency, everyone would do it.
