Pelicans could be the 3rd team if they are willing to take back Anderson. Would love for Boston to be the 4th team and get O'Quinn.

One of Mickey and Jackson will be moved so we can officially sign Hayward with cap room.  There only way we could get involved is if we send out more guaranteed salary than we take back, as otherwise there is no room for Hayward.  It seems unlikely that a Carmelo deal is looking for an additional team that enters with the requirement of reducing payroll.

I'd be down with that proposal -- basically picking up O'Quinn for Mickey and Jackson.  don't know anything about Quarterman but O'Quinn helps bring some more toughness and hustle to the front court.

can't see the Knicks going for that deal though.  basically a salary dump of Melo for crap.

good point.  was looking at the numbers and noticed we were taking back more $ than we sent out.

Weird how ESPN Trade Machine chalks us up as "-19 Wins" from trading fringe players for other fringe players. Shows how little faith one should have in the change in wins projection.
Celtics fan for life.

Very strange! If trading Mickey and Jackson would cost Boston 19 wins, why the heck aren't they in the starting lineup?  ;D

Well, we would be trading away the only SG (he's listed as G, which would fit into the slot) on the roster, who also happened to lead the team in PER last year with 30.8, so of course it does.  The trade machine is convinced that DJax is our superstar starting SG and analyzing trades accordingly
I'm bitter.

Now I know why we only won 53 games last year. If we played Djax and Mickey we wouldve won 60 games easily.

What is with the minor Oquinn obsession on Celticsblog?
The dude is straight flaming hot garbage.

Is it the efficient scoring, very good rebounding, or shot-blocking proficiency that bothers you? Is it his hustle, or that he led the Knicks in both ORtg and DRtg? 

He's an effective player on a cheap contract. "Straight flaming garbage" suggests a lack of familiarity with O'Quinn. He's not an all-star, but he's a solid player.

Yeah, what Roy said. O'Quinn is a solid big that can do a bit of everything. Not sure what you're on about.

If O'Quinn is flaming garbage, Id say at least half of the league is hot garbage.
My 2017 Draft Rankings:       My 2017 FA Celtic Rankings:
1.) Markelle Fultz                   1.) Gordon Hayward
2.) Jayson Tatum                   2.) Blake Griffin
3.) Lonzo Ball                           3.) No other realistic options
4.) Josh Jackson                          move the needle much
5.) Lauri Markkanen

Can someone tell me what the Rockets are reportedly sending out? Maybe I missed this somewhere, but I can't find it in the articles I've read.
