    Celtics sign Al Horford to a 2-year extension

    Given his current level of play 15-16m per would've been a bargain, nevermind 10. Outstanding deal.

    Big & Tall Shopping for a New Center

    It all depends, would Brad and Joe prefer 2 BIGZ when Timelord is back? Or does the guard and wing depth negate that? AL and TL on 25-28ish MPG should be more than fine with Kornet/Blake/whoever giving spot minutes if not. Honestly, whatever is cheapest.

    Steve Nash fired, Jacque Vaughn to Brooklyn

    This would be hilarious and I'm all about it.

    Grant “Corner Office” Williams

    Has anyone seen anything regarding how much the cap is going up in the next few years, or is it just conjecture at this point? GW at 4/55 to 60 would be more than worth it NOW, nevermind operating with 15-25% more space to work with.

    Stink out Loud for Stroud (?)

    Tank for the most draft capital possible, and then aggressively seek trade down options in the draft. This roster needs help everywhere, and I'm bullish on Mac long term. Keep the youth that's shown promise (Meyers, Dugger, Barmore, Strange, Stevenson and whoever else) and trade for picks.

    2022-2023 General Celtics thread

    So with Timelord out for a minute, does Ime go small ball more often? Or does he give all those reserve bigs minutes? Smart/Brogdon/Jays/AL with PP and White isn't terrible.

    2022-23 Celtics Predictions

    62-20, #1 Seed The Jays get another All-Star Nod, Tatum is top 5 in MVP Voting, Smart/Tatum/Timelord are all-defensive team nods, Tatum is 1st Team All-NBA, Jaylen is 2nd Team, Brogdon (if healthy) wins 6th man. Tatum is 28/9/6 on 60% + TS Jaylen is 24/6/4 on 58% TS Timelord is 12/10/2/2...

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    https://www.statmuse.com/nba/ask/nba-players-with-most-total-minutes-played-this-playoff JT averaged just under 40 minutes/game for 24 games during the playoffs. Even for a 24 year old in as good a shape as he is, it's probably too much to ask out of him given the ridiculous pace games are...

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    I say no because I'm pretty much convinced it was depth issues at the end of the playoff rotation, not top-end talent, that cost them a title. Brad has largely addressed that with Gallo and Brogdon. I see no reason to undo that to get, while a top 10-15 guy all-time, is a player past his prime...

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    The 'best chance to win' is predicated on a 33-34 year old MVP-Caliber wing who has averaged 45 games per regular season over the past 2 years to hold up over the 100+ game grind between the regular season and playoffs. I don't think anyone can understate how much of a war of attrition this game...

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    I'll join the No Durant brigade with zero regrets. Trading an all-star wing PLUS at two more rotation pieces PLUS future 1sts for a player who has missed almost half his games over the past two years? Nah, I'm good with all that. I'd argue that the Finals were lost because of a lack of depth...

    Patriots Training Camp 2022

    Unless there's a clear upgrade at LB or CB with the cap space Aghohor frees up, I don't see a good reason to jet him elsewhere.

    Would you trade Devers+ for Soto?

    The gap in talent and perceived future production isn't worth the ransom in prospects it'd take to get Soto. No.

    Mfiondu Kabengele, 2-way player

    His write up sounds like a slightly bigger Theis with upside, which is great if he ends up the 3rd big.

    What's left this off season?

    I'd hold off on any deal involving White, his value is probably pretty low right now. See where the roster is at the deadline and go from there, and if Brogdon is healthy he's big enough to spell Jaylen at the 3 for 10 minutes a game if they go smallball more often. There's still minutes for White.

    Brogdon to Boston for Theis/Nesmith/2023 1st

    Uhh, this might be a bit of hyperbole, but this is approaching 04 Pistons depth here, assuming reasonable health. A healthy Brogdon is the #3 option on this squad.

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    No, because the thought of winning a title with an organically grown core is much more appealing, top 10-15 player of all time or not.

    Celtics Offseason Primer

    Orlando declined Mo Bamba's QO earlier today, I'd be all over that for the MLE. 10/8/1.6 blocks and 38% from 3?

    To PE, or not To PE - that is the question

    If you're telling me NYK will basically solve the depth issues AND throw in a future first... Get it done, Theo.

    To PE, or not To PE - that is the question

    Maybe I'm thinking too much towards risk aversion, as Richardson is too streaky to say for sure he'd add any scoring punch, but I don't want to see anyone we add damage the integrity of the rotation on D. I don't see many 3-and-D wings available that wouldn't cost too much in assets. Give...
