Draft trade idea from the ringer:

"A three-way trade with Boston and Memphis
Celtics receive: no. 2 pick
Grizzlies receive: no. 27 pick, 2019 Clippers pick (lottery protected), 2019 Kings pick (top-1 protected), 2019 Grizzlies pick
Kings receive: no. 4 pick, Terry Rozier"

I love this trade.

I like Terry Rozier too much to wish the Sacramento Kings on him.

Wait, hold on - I thought you said that Doncic had Hall of Fame potential, so why, then, would you not be willing to move Rozier, etc., for the guy?

Because I like Terry Rozier and hate the Kings.  There are only a few players I despise so much that I would wish them the Kings.  I would do this trade if we replaced Sacramento with Phoenix and moved up to #1 for Doncic.  Just don’t want Terry (or Luka) to go to Sacramento.

I like Rozier and hate the Kings as well but if Angie thinks that Doncic is a generational talent, which is definitely debatable,  then he would make that trade.

Danny would send Austin to Sacramento in a trade, this is true.

(And ultimately I’d make the trade too — just trying to have some levity that apparently got taken seriously).

It wouldn't take much to get Austin, late 1st? ;D

Yeah Memphis clearly wants someone that can help push their playoff chances with Conley/Gasol, before it ends. Or get as much as assets/Allstar. Kings/Grizz/Clippers are a treasure trove of assets, but they need to figure out what their game plan is.

Even a healthy Grizzles team barely makes the playoffs. They may not want too, but it's time for them to rebuild. They aren't even going to be able to resign Tyreke Evans.

I like it as well, but then does Danny take Doncic or the coveted big in Bamba??

Clearly Doncic.  If Ainge wants Bamba, he can just trade directly with Memphis at #4 and keep Terry Rozier (according to this trade).

My two favorite players at the top are Bamba and Doncic....But there are mocks with Bamba as far down as 9, and mocks with Doncic as low as 5, though most have him between 2 and 4.

So, I think the Celtics give up too much in this trade.  Mainly due to the Sac. pick, which I"m counting on being between 2 and 4 next year.

First Bagley signs with Puma, then he comes out as a fan of Sacramento? Who is this guy?!
