Multitude of factors to consider:

1) Gordon Haywards injury impacts ability to truly compete this year (although I strongly disagree with this notion given the play of our rook)

2) Age

3) Center heavy draft next year with Lakers pick likely conveying.

  • When my account was born, Mark Blount was our C :(
I don't think we can since he's a year 2 max FA, and even if we could I'm not sure what he'd fetch?  He's probably a lot more valuable than his return.

EDIT: But if we could trade him or wanted to, I'd say his value is pretty high right now.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

What?  Why?  So we can go to the Finals next year with a rookie big?

When we have good players, can we just keep them please?

Not just that, but it's an extremely bad look if you trade the franchise's FIRST marquee FA signing in history... less than 2 years into his contract.

Why even mention gordons injury? Are we supposed to trade the whole team because he got injured? I don't get it.. panicking and making trades of important players simply because another player got inured is shortsighted

Apparently w/o Hayward we are no longer a playoff team and should be tanking.  ::)

I agree he's a big loss.. but come on now...

This might end up being the 2nd most lopsided poll in Cblog within the past week.  :laugh:

I'm not going to flame you for having ideas even if I don't agree with them.

Big Al is one of the most well rounded players in the NBA that it's hard to find something he struggles with or situations you don't trust him in. Name another player on the Celtics you can say samething about? Maybe, maybe, maybe Tatum but still too early to tell.

I think we should seriously consider trading Stevens for multiple draft picks.
2018 Mock Trade Deadline:

Pelicans: Davis, Holiday, Vucevic, Rondo, Clarkson, Nance, Hart, Moore, Ilyasova, Ajinca, Hill, Miller, Jackson, Dotson, Dakari Johnson

Warriors:  KD, Steph, Klay, Draymomd, Iggy, Zaza, Young, Livingston, McGee, West, McCaw, Jones, Casspi, Jones, Looney

Google for picks.

Let's also trade the Celtics logo for a couple of second rounders!

Maybe we can trade GE while we’re at it.
