To Memphis: Smart, Yabusele, Larkin, 2nd round picks

To Celtics: Tyreke Evans,  Ivan rabb , Mclemore

Reason for Grizzlies:  It's time to start rebuilding.  Team should field offers for Gasol and attach Parsons salary (terrible contact) when they decide to trade the big fella.

Reason for Celtics.  Evans would provide dependable scoring off the bench.   He is the key of this trade.  CBS should be able to rejuvanate Mclemores career.  A player Ainge has always liked.   


I know some Smart fans won't like this idea...but he has not improved from last season and will want to get paid more money than he deserves.  Come playoff time a player like Evans will be more valuable than a player like Smart.   Semi can do many of things Smart can do defensively also

lineup after trade

Baynes
Horford
Tatum
Brown
Irving

Theis
Morris/Rabb
Evans
Mclemore
Rozier

Not a bad idea, but these trades are not normally 6 player trades.

Something like Smart and a 2nd for Evans makes sense. Evans is an expiring contract, but the Griz could look at Smart and have his bird rights going into the off-season.

If we trade for Evans we get his bird rights correct?

Either way, what does he get in free agency?  13-15 million per?  Do you think Danny would be willing to pay him that for 4 years?  I think no.

We should keep Smart... heíll probably take the QO and be an unrestricted free agent two summers from now.  By that time we will hopefully have a good backup guard to replace him.
It's about to be crazy, G.

Smart and a 2nd would be a great trade for Evans!!  I think we on this board highly overrate Smart.The Griz probably want more!!

Agreed, but Evans was only worth a couple million on a one-year contract -- that's his value. Considering both contracts and the Smart's RFA, it seems like its fair overall.

I donít think we get his bird rights so for that reason Iím not crazy about the trade idea as it would most likely be for a rental.

  I think it's a fair trade. I just don't know if the Griz have a need for Smart!

I think Memphis says no to this. They're giving up the best player in the deal and the best prospect in Rabb.

Considering stage of career, some battles with Injuries, i think the Celts would keep Evans to a 3 year 30-35 million dollar deal.  And it would be worth it

Memphis will lose Evans after this season ...  unless a team is willing to give up a 1st (doubt it)

a player like Smart in return is not bad... plus they are 1st in line to resign

Can you explain how the C's will open up the necessary cap space to accomplish this?

baynes, larkin for example are only signed for this season 

Wyc can also afford to pay some luxury tax

It has nothing to do with luxury tax or those guys being free agents. You need to look at our salary for next year so you can understand what I'm talking about.

The Grizzlies have a better chance to sign Evan's than Smart plus Smart isn't close to the ball player Evans  is.  There's no way they make the trade.

I like Semi, but he's not ready to contribute meaningful minutes yet.
