Here are some thoughts on including Crowder in a deal
1. Jimmy Butler in the past has had leadership issues and the Celtics don't want to hurt their chemistry in a deal. Butler and Crowder are friends, bring him in with someone he knows well would help his transition.
2. I love the fit of Jimmy next to Crowder rather than instead of Crowder. The last 2 years our best defenses have featured lineups that can switch everything. On offense Crowder at the 4 gives Jimmy Butler more space than he has ever had before.
3. I'd much rather move Bradley than Crowder. I think in the end we will offer them something like Bradley, Rozier, Olynyk, Net 17' pick, Memphis pick, Clippers pick. If it's more than that the C's should consider walking away. I'm sure a similar trade would be available on draft night, and maybe the Bulls will feel different at that point.I like our team now we don't need to make a move if the price isn't right.
