That HAS to have like top 10 protection or something right?

EDIT: Or maybe top 14.

OK, that's a sucky trade right there. Faith in Danny is wavering for the first time. These high seconds are really valuable with the cap exploding, and he's giving two away for nothing.

Celtics Traded 31 and 35 for future Clipper first 2019, source told ESPN. Memphis owned clipper pick.
According to Real GM, that pock is heavily protected: "2019 first round draft pick to Memphis
If at least two years after the L.A. Clippers conveyed a 1st round pick to Toronto, then the L.A. Clippers' 1st round pick to Memphis protected for selections 1-14 in 2019 and 1-14 in 2020; if the L.A. Clippers have not conveyed a 1st round pick to Memphis by 2020, then the L.A. Clippers will instead convey their 2022 2nd round pick to Memphis."

The pick to Toronto is described like this: "2017 first round draft pick to Toronto
L.A. Clippers' 1st round pick to Toronto (via Milwaukee) protected for selections 1-14 in 2017, 1-14 in 2018 and 1-14 in 2019; if the L.A. Clippers have not conveyed a 1st round pick to Toronto by 2019, then the L.A. Clippers will instead convey their 2020 2nd round pick and 2021 2nd round pick to Toronto."

Wow. Not sure how I feel about that trade. Just based on the time value of pretty much anything...that is a long way out and not even sure if the Clippers will be bad then. It is possible the Celts just traded 31 and 35 for a pick in the late 20's in three years..that is a little strange.

I would think Davis would be of more helpful than a late first rounder three years from now.

It's not nothing, it's a late 1st. He can't roster many more guys.

I don't mind that deal. Sounds like this years' second rounders are about as good as most years'.

Which is to say...

Lottery in 2019 and 2020 then becomes a 2nd.
Ugh. Solid chance that Doc (the GM) manages to fuck things up enough for the Clips to bottom out in 3 years. Would have rather taken a flyer on Davis + another draft and stash.

how stupid is Jalen Rose, they literally just said minutes ago that Davis is being traded and then he talks about how he's a good fit to land with the Celtics....

Also, if he is going to Memphis, doesn't that make them better. Don't the Celts own a Memphis first rounder in the future.

Seems like a pretty poor trade.

It's heavily protected and conveys to a second-rounder in 2020. That would be close to nothing.
Huh? It's either a non-lottery 1st or it's a high second, for 2 high seconds they don't have roster spots for. If a late 1st or early 2nd is nothing then the 31 and 35 are also basically nothing.

But then what are second round picks?
Well, 31 and 35 are high 2nds, and with the cap exploding, having cheap cost-controlled roster filler is more valuable than ever. Mediocre rotation guys are going to be getting stupid money going forward. To trade these two high 2nds for a single 2nd in 2020, especially with some intriguing players still on the board right now, kinda sucks. It's hard to be enthused about it.

A first rounder likely to convey in 3 or 4 years. Very slim chance Deyonte Davis changes the fortunes of that pick one way or the other.

I'm fine sacrificing time for value (like with the Memphis pick), but only if there is some upside. This move really has me questioning DA for the first time...

People can't shit enough on ESPN but come draft day everybody freaks out over the slightest deviations from their mocks. I love it.

The Celtics don't have any roster space. Beyond that, this is widely considered a really bad draft. I don't know that any of these guys are going to do much to move the needle, especially for the Celtics who would just be dumping them in the D-League or Europe.
