I think the premium on shooting helps Bender too. He has potential there, particularly for a PF.

Celtics Talk / Re: best value at #3

For this draft, the level of talent between pick #3 and pick #5 isn't big enough for other teams to lose assets over.

Everybody always overreacts to the championship winner and says "That's the way to win now" instead of acknowledging that they were just better at what they did than everybody else was at what they do. So maybe. But most of the league already values shooting pretty high right now so I don't know how much another GS win would move the needle.

This trade might make sense for both teams:

Lakers Trade:  D'Angelo Russell, #2 (Ingram)
Philly Trades:  Jahlil Okafor, #1 (Simmons)

Sounds like the Lakers want Simmons.  Philly loved Russell.  Lakers reportedly loved Okafor, but for whatever reason took Russell over him - some suspect it was so they could make Philly trade up to get him.  Philly needs a SF like Ingram  and obviously could use a guard like Russell.

Logical move for both teams unless Philly is convinced Simmons is transcendent and wants to build around him.
I floated the same thing in another thread. That's the swap that makes a ton of sense for both teams.

Would be to trade #3 to the 4th or 5th picking team for a player and draft Murray or Heild at 4 or 5

No, this is not the NFL. Trading down doesn't make sense unless it involves a quality player coming back.  Best value at #3 is best player which I believe is Bender.

Yeah but that's you. Not everyone feels like Bender is the best option. If Danny has the option to trade out of #3 to the Pelicans in a package for say Ryan Anderson and still grab a Murray, Brown, Heild at 5-6 so we don't reach to high for these guys at 3 and still walk away with valuable assets, you pull that trigger. I'd rather do this then take a shot in the dark at Bender who's promising but still a unknown value at the #3 pick.
We will know more after Bender works out for us. If we do trade down we need to trade up with some of our other picks. 3 rooks is enough with 3 rooks from last year plus Young. That only leaves with 8 vets on the roster. Hopefully Portland and NY will give us a second for a second in the future.

You are right, it does suck.  DA maneuvered very shrewdly the last 3 years to get us in the position and now everyone has some cap space.  Cap is going up to 92 mil, then an estimated 102ish mil, BUT then it goes back down.  I bet several teams over extend themselves over the next 2 years and then are trapped for the following 2 to 4 years.  If we prudently don't make crazy offers to suspect FAs over the next 2 summers and some "good" FAs elect to stay put (Lets face it Hornets can offer Batum the most $ and most years), we may come up with not very much the next 2 summers.  BUT we could then be in a heck of position in the summer of 2018, when most other GMs have tied up their money in a shrinking cap environment.  We could be one of the few organizations in  2018 with significant cap room.

Be nice if LeBron could loose .  Might speed up the break up of Cavs.

Regarding his interview with the Celtics at the NBA Combine, Brown said, “One of the things they said is I’ll love it there in Boston. It’s the type of area, the type of culture they have there. They said it fits me to a T. Things like that mean a lot to me. Just talking to me and getting a feel for me goes a long way.

“Coach [Brad] Stevens is great. He talked about how I would fit. Coach Stevens had a lot of positive things to say. He had a lot of positive things to say about Boston, the traditions of Boston. I know they want to win right away and [they] feel like they can do that.

Curry appears to be closer to 100 % ....he is moving good again.

That come back seemed light a fire in the Warriors eyes and OKC looked a bit demoralized afterward.


Warriors seem to have woken up last night and realized winning and another title is within their grasp.


OKC ......with the huge  choke job last night.


I think the momentum has swung HUGE during the forth quarter bombing of OKC .

Going to  be hard for OKC to regain upper hand away.
