Just a "Can't sleep in my bed" question that popped in my head.

He's a scorer, can rebound and I think he could be very usefull to the Celtics.

So let's say Memphis decides is open to discussions and want to take a new direction after a new season below expectations.

Would you trade for him ? What would you give ? Is he wirth a BKN pick and 1 or 2 fillers (Amir / Zeller / Bradley ?)

Too old to justify giving up a Brooklyn pick for him.

Edit: Sorry, to add, 32 years old now. 33 years old next season.

Gasol is a great player, and I would love him on the Celtics, but he is a veteran entering the back end of his prime.  You don't give up a Nets pick for that.

Well, that's even better if we don't need a Brooklyn pick! :D

What would you give then ?

1. Not worth a Brooklyn pick.
2. How is Bradley considered a "filler"?

I was just giving examples. Many people said he should be traded. But yes, he is not a filler, didn't mean it like that

Dunno depends if we can get Pau Gasol in FA if he opts out (I think throwing some more money on a one year deal would attract him to come here)

No, this is the guy to get: Nikola Vučević.

I said it at the deadline and he wasn't dealt.  I don't believe he would have cost us a lot compared to the PG or JB rumors.

No 32 year old is worth a BK pick.  He would be a perfect fit though and a great mentor to Zizic. If we got Hayward as a FA and Fultz as a draft pick Id maybe go as far as Bradley, Crowder and their pick back.

I'd be reluctant to give a Brooklyn pick, but I'd consider it.

He is 32 (turned in January), but his game has improved every year without being based on physical aspects. He may have the highest BBIQ for a center in the game, a crafty passer like Sabonis or Divac, with 3 point range and a legit 7'1" size to close rebounds just due to his presence. He's never been a great rebounder because he's been forced to play outside for years.

I think he will age well, even better than Pau, who has been an ASG starter at 35 years old and last year averaged 16.5, 11, 4 and 2 blocks in a playoff team. Marc can keep his prime for three more seasons easily. With 32 years old, he's made 20 points, 6 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game, with .385 from deep. He'd be perfect to polish Zizic as a mentor.

I understand people refusing the deal, but I would do it depending on the real plan for our team, contend next 3-4 years or keep building pieces for a decade of possible contention.

We pass on Cousins, but we take on an aging center with a troubling injury history?

Oy.
Coined the CelticsBlog term, "Euromistake."

But c'mon, hey, he's a high character guy AND he's easy to coach.

That means a lot more to Little Brad than having to deal with the Boogie Man. ;)

lol...

Have ever, even for a moment, thought that Sacramento required a 2017 first back?

Oh no, that's right, you know more than ainge and the scouts and are just so much smarter.

Just like EVERY other team except the Pelicans, Suns and Lakers (3 real winning organizations  ::) ).  So I guess people on this board are smarter than the teams running those other organizations?   Remember we weren't the only one passing on him.  There's a reason and it's been written by numerous writers many times.....
