Context: It's the Summer of 2017, Pelicans missed the playoffs, Boogie and the Brow are a bust. Celtics were just eliminated in 5 games from the ECF.

Demps: Hey Danny, It's Dell.
Ainge: Yo, what's up, son?
Demps: Look, Boogie and the Brow are a little redundant. I'm looking to move the Brow because I don't want to pay him that super deal and plus I'll get more value for him on the open market. Plus, Boogie has been okay since being here and their talent is just about equal. Do you have any interest?
Ainge: Bruh, for real? Of course.
Demps: I want IT, Bradley, Crowder, Rozier, Mickey, BKN 18, and Zeller's instant relief contract. I'm also going to ask that you take on that Asik cat, he's useless.
Ainge:____________________________________________. (Fill it in)

We might see Dell have his second trade vetoed by the Commissioner.

Isn't Davis under contract until 2021?

I know you were kidding. But it's important to note that Stern didn't veto the trade as the commissioner, he shut the trade down as the Pelicans (Then Hornets) owner.

I would actually suggest trading Bradley for Cousins... And I think the Pelicans would actually agree to do that, if Ainge threw in a late first round pick, and a few second rounders.

Davis is better off as a small ball 5, or 4 with a defending interior 5.

You give that up for Davis, we become the new Pelicans.

Davis + not so good bench.

Davis doesn't want to play the 5, he's been pretty vocal about that.

People realize we'd be trading for a 23 year old future Hall of Famer who is locked up for four more seasons on what will soon be a below-market contract, right?

I'm a "win now" person, but I'd be happy building around the NBA's best big man along with Brown, a top-4 pick, and max cap space. It's basically IT, a lottery pick, and good role players for a young superstar.

I think that happens when Danny says "what's up, son"
This is where the rubber hits the road

I would give up both Brooklyn picks and the players mentioned if that's what it took.

I don't think the trade is constructed quite right.  NOP have Holiday so why would they need IT too?  Here is my idea.  Give them IT, Horford, Bradley and Crowder and take back Holiday and Davis (and Asik too if we need to).  That gives them a whole new team to put around Cousins and we go all in for youth.  Probably we throw in the BKN 2018 too but at that point, we may be over paying.

NOP:
Cousins
Horford
Crowder
Bradley
Thomas

Celtics:
Smart
Fultz
Brown
Davis
Zizic

This made me chuckle because its the exact Celtics team I was hoping for 2 weeks before the deadline.   :o

Holiday is a free agent and will probably take the max.
