Hey guys, so I didn't see a thread like this on here, so thought I'd create it.

I figure it would also be a bit more organized to just post all the rumors, signings, trades on here as well for the next few months as there is expected to be quite a bit of movement and buyouts (possibly with a lot of surprising names involved)

It's also a little easier since it seems teams like the Cavaliers are after EVERYBODY (seriously, we've heard George Hill, DeAndre Jordan, Lou Williams, Kemba Walker all within a day), so there will be a ton of different rumors.

Anyways, my realistic hope for the Celtics is that Greg Monroe or Tyson Chandler gets bought out by Phoenix, and that the Celtics sign either using DPE (I would love to have either). Gives us good front court depth and some postseason experience as well (especially with Chandler). And frankly, we may need either to help this front court which does still tend to struggle against teams with ferocious bigs (as we've seen the last few games).

My ideal hope is either Tyreke Evans or Lou Williams, but I doubt they can trade for either b/c of lack of "rental assets" like 2nd rounders and such, and because I don't think the Clippers sell to be honest (they still have aspirations of making the playoffs and possibly making a run with Griffin, Beverley, Jordan, Lou, etc.).

Personally, I wouldn't even mind just cutting Nader for another open roster spot, but Ainge won't do that lol.

As for the Cavaliers, I think they are kind of doomed IF the Pelicans and Clippers decide not to sell, because the ONLY moves that can thread the needle for them is EITHER trading for Cousins, OR trading for a Jordan + Lou Williams package from LAC. But Pelicans and Clippers are currently in the playoff picture and are just 1.5 games removed from being a 5 seed in the West.

Anyways, should be a busy trade season and buyout market. It may be a bit boring for us Celtics fans as usually we hear star names in trade rumors coming to Boston, but that's likely not the case for us, but hey, we still have the DPE to use in a trade or buyout signing (for hopefully a good player)!

Cleveland and Lakers in serious talks, not sure about who. Clarkson?

Woj says Cavaliers and Lakers are serious on a trade and could be close.

Could CLE get Clarkson, Nance & Randle while Lakers get salary (2 bad contracts?), and Cavaliers Own 2018 First Rounder.

This looks like a "let's get some youth and dump some salary because Lebron is gone" trade

Idk, Clarkson and Randle are pretty solid, so is Nance.

Doesn't thread the needle but could help them get out of the East at least. IMO.

Or am I overrating these guys?

Not good. If the Raptors somehow get DJ for JV and a prospect ... Not good.

Really...Bulls win that trade, easily.  W. Reed is a decent young big.  Jameer will probably retire, no?

Yeah, I could see an LA trade involving IT. I’ve always said that’d be a good landing spot for him, though surely that’d mean no Lebron in the summer.
