    Fournier to Celtics for 2 second round picks

    So Javonte's 1.5m salary was a much bigger portion of the salary dump than Theis-Wagner/Kornet exchange alone. Had they simply declined Javonte's option five weeks ago, it looks like the Theis trade would have not been necessary to get under the Luxury tax. Kind of a bummer to look at through...

    Kemba 2021: The Jour-knee Begins

    Brad started experimenting with this rotation. Look no further than 3 games ago when this happened during the Mavs game. Kemba was subbed at the 6:35 mark for Pritchard and started the 2nd quarter with Kemba, Pritchard, Nesmith, Semi, and TL. That lineup was +1 until Tatum comes in at the 7:25...

    2/23 - Celtics @ Mavericks

    Liking this sub pattern to get Kemba out early to see how he looks with the 2nd unit.

    What to Do, What to Do?

    There's definitely that downside risk for depth this season, and completely agree that Timelord hasn't shown an ability to stay healthy for a whole season. It all depends on your view of TT vs replacement center which is all I expect Boogie to be. I actually think GWill would not be much of a...

    What to Do, What to Do?

    In a vacuum no, but if we could use TT's salary as trade ballast for a wing, and increase Timelord's role, why not. RAPTOR likes him better and it's a different look. But yeah, I don't want Theis starting at SF. And unlikely he wants to come here to be the third center.

    Tristan Thompson to Boston: 2 years, $19M, player option to re-up with Khloé Kardashian

    I definitely agree with this point. The 2 big lineup could be a major factor with Grant's struggles. To my recollection, the times where he really excelled last year and in the playoffs were in small ball lineups where he was the 5. I can't recall any times this year with Grant at the 5, unless...

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    Moving Tremont only opens up a 2 way roster spot which I'm guessing anyone useful would not agree to. It's time to move on from Carsen. It's possible he becomes an NBA player one day but it won't be on his rookie contract. Kyle Korver is out there, and would be as nice shooter to have on our...

    2020 NBA Draft Game Thread

    That would make a lot of sense and makes the trade palatable. Perhaps the Grizzlies agreed to take on 5 million of salary of the Cs choosing. If Kanter opts in, he's sent to the Grizzlies and then waive/stretch Poirer. If Kanter opts out, we send Poirer and maybe Carsen.

    2020 NBA Draft discussion

    Nesmith would be an exciting add if he happened to slip to 14. That said, I think it's a risky pick considering the small sample size, strength of schedule, and home laden schedule he played. He only played 14 games, 12 of those games were home games against mostly a very weak non-conference...

    Gordon Hayward 2020: I'm standing here in pieces and you're having delusions of grandeur!

    You're right, for some reason I thought the Mike Conley had come back faster but using him as a guide he was gone from the bubble for 2 days and quarantined for 4 more days. With the ECF starting on 9/15, maybe by having him return to the bubble, they're hoping he can sneak in game 1.

    Gordon Hayward 2020: I'm standing here in pieces and you're having delusions of grandeur!

    I was wondering how they were going to deal with the extended absence quarantine period. Makes sense with the bubble rules to have him come back and do his 4 day quarantine period now, leave the bubble again for the birth of his child, and be eligible to play right away on return, hopefully in...

    Isaiah Thomas: Ball-Carrying Jerkface?

    Shaq used to do the same thing where he would step over the line and never got called. You can probably call a lane violation on just about every free throw attempt where someone is either standing on 3 point line or goes into the key early. Just one of those rules that isnt enforced at the...

    Your preferred Celtic target at #3

    Another datapoint on the stats side, in Pelton's WARP model he ranks Jaylen Brown as the 101st best prospect. Granted it has Zhou Qi and Bender as 1 and 2, but I agree with all the points you made and am hoping Brown isn't the pick.

    Celtics acquire David Lee for Gerald Wallace

    I believe another possible benefit is with the additional salary from Lee, if Ainge can work out a sign and trade for Amir Johnson with the Rondo TPE, that would get them over them cap, giving us access to the MLE and other rights/non-expired exceptions would not need to be renounced.
