Rozier + Nader + #2 for J.J. Barea

Is that enough for a tanking Dallas team?

I totally stole this idea from KGs Knee, btw.

I like it!

Honestly not as high on Rozier as most here (solid off the bench but can be WILD and just inefficient many games) and Barea would definitely HELP with the bench scoring.

This move ALSO would open up 2 roster spots I believe, so we'd still be able to add someone (or 2 players) via Vet. Min exceptions if bought out (Okafor? Monroe?)

Not quite what I suggested, but yes of course I would do this.

Just look at Barea's per 36 numbers and it's all you need to know.

Also, he has Boston roots, having played at Northeastern.

I know former NU classmates of barea. They say hes  like 3-4 inches shorter in person than his listed height. Thought that was crazy cuz his listed height is short already

Also, if you're on the fence, just google "JJ Barea Ray Allen".

I love Barea, but I think the Celtics are too committed to their switching defense to swap Rozier for a guy as small as JJ. Even when Rozier isn't hitting shots, he's still skying for rebounds and playing solid defense with an ability to guard the 2, which allows Brad to use the three guard lineup - going small without sacrificing defense. You can have Rozier and Larkin on the court at the same time. You can't do that with Larkin and Barea. Teams can already look to post up Larkin on a switch, they'd eat us alive being able to go one-on-one against both him and JJ... we'd have to switch less, which would mess with the success of our defense and the versatility of our lineups.

Love JJ, but I don't think adding him to this roster would fit with Brad's schemes.

But Barea is so good he makes Larkin expendable so you wouldn't need them on the court at the same time. I like the trade. Nader isn't an NBA player. We have a ton of first rounders coming our way, we don't need a second rounder. And sorry but Rozier can't shoot or score. And since Smart can't either and the team seems set on keeping and playing him, then a good offensive presence on the second team like Barea would be perfect. And Barea has shown to be clutch in the playoffs and is an NBA champion. And a Huskie!!!! Go get him.

Never happening.  Danny loves Rozier and he has way more upside.

I'm down. Barea gives the second unit badly needed scoring. But I wonder if the Mavericks will just waive him a few months from now so Danny could use the DPE for him.

Celtics riding a 16 game winning streak - We need J.J. Barea on our team!
(while giving up assets)

I heard that some teams are desperate for length,
but I never heard of fans desperate for shortness. :D

He's 33 though. If we need scoring then I'd rather go after Lou Williams (he's 2 years younger).

If we need a scoring point guard why are we trading for one? we have an open roster spot that we can use.

Highly likely thought that this is not a priority for us and the length of Rozier is worth more to Brad than the scoring... but I guess these threads are going to come thick and fast at the moment..

If a team is tanking, Nader would help in that regard.
