Interesting takes. Some have suggested the trade would be vetoed for ripping off the Hornets, some would hang up suggesting the Celtics were giving up too much.

I think I did okay with this one.

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

Irony intended.  But also wanted to make everyone think about which of these two teams would you really rather have moving forward?  I prefer the young version over the old version but of course this particular young version includes Davis which makes it a lot easier to like that what reality may be.

If we could kick off a youth movement built around Brown, Davis, and Fultz while keeping some of our young sidekicks, you have to do it. Also in the East, that team is good enough to be a playoff player already. Let alone what it will be one day.
My 2017 Draft Rankings:       My 2017 FA Celtic Rankings:
1.) Markelle Fultz                   1.) Blake Griffin
2.) Josh Jackson                    2.) Gordon Hayward
3.) Lonzo Ball                        3.) No other realistic options
4.) Jayson Tatum                        move the needle much
5.) Lauri Markkanen

IT, AB, Crowder, Horford, Clippers 1st, and Grizz 1st for Davis, Asik, and Moore
I wouldn't deal the Nets 18. Need that for Ayton.

Pelicans= IT, AB, Crowder, Horford, Cousins

C's
Starters= Smart, Fultz, Brown, Davis, KO
Bench= Rozier, Moore, Nader, Zizic, Asik

No way Demps comes to the table without at least one BRK pick.

I like the thought, except that Anthony Davis can't stay healthy. I'm not sure why he doesn't get knocked for this.

I've said it numerous times. It's a big issue when we talk value.

So our entire, reasonably aged, #2 ECF starting line-up plus multiple firsts isn't enough? I don't man, that is a haul. This has obviously gone into NBA 2K trade territory, but how could the Pels say no to that package?

I take Anthony Davis over all those players, and I firmly believe in the hands of Stevens, Davis would literally be in the same position as IT, Westbrook, James, and Harden easily..

But we give up a lot... I dunno how I feel about that lol. Could we still get George?

Smart, George, Davis, and any center/shooting guard would make us a top 3 team in the east with plenty of room and potential to develop. Brown could be at the 2.

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.
