The value of getting a Bellinelli or a Lou Willams is that it allows Kyrie, Jalen, and Tatum to play less minutes per game so they are fresher for the playoffs.  Id prefer Bellinelli but would also be happy with Lou.

I read this on MassLive:

If Hayward makes a full recovery before the Celtics' season ends, he can return with no penalty to Boston or the player acquired with the DPE.

So we could do both, sign/trade for a useful player and also get Hayward back at the end of the season?  Talk about having your cake and eating it too?  I guess we would have to cut someone from the roster to add Hayward in that case but we have dispensable players at the end of the roster.

As for Williams, I get the interest but I would not go for him, for sure not now.  No need to rush (we have until March 10).  We may suffer an injury or a team we don't suspect may have a fire sale along the way.  No need to make an impulse buy for someone like Lou Williams.

Beverly out for the season. Clippers shopping Jordan. The "Brick Brothers" killing our bench.

Yeah, I think now would be a good time to be considering the DPE for Williams.

I think waiting is better than making reactionary moves.
