NBA Trade Machine says this works out all on its own - no fillers needed.

OKC gets Kawhi Leonard
San Antonio Gets Kyrie Irving
Boston Gets Steven Adams

Boston Rolls out with:

Terry Rozier
Jaylen Brown
Jason Tatum
Al Horford
Steven Adams

With These guys off the bench:
Larkin
Smart
Hayward
Ojeleye
Baynes
Morris

Tell me who is going to score on that team?  They'd be younger (at Center and PG), healthier, cheaper, and way better on D.  Center would be a massive upgrade on both ends.  And I don't think we lose THAT much offensively with the way JB, JT, and TR are developing.

With the SA/Kawhi divorce imminent - i don't think they get a better offer than Kyrie.
I think OKC needs to shuffle the deck.

Thoughts?

(I'm bracing for rotten tomatoes to be thrown in my direction...)

Kyrie Evans for Steven Adams?  No thanks. Poor return for Boston.

Celtics are not trading Kyrie for Steven Adams.

That really helps 2 out of 3 teams.
CB Mock Deadline - Minnesota Timberwolves
Kemba Walker / Tyus Jones / Aaron Brooks
Jimmy Butler / Jamal Crawford / Treveon Graham
Rodney Hood / Nic Batum / Marcus Georges Hunt
Taj Gibson / Nemanja Bjelica / Jonas Jerebko
KAT / Derrick Favors / Cole Aldrich
Picks - 2018 CHA 1st (Lotto protected), none out

Alternatively:

Boston Gets: Rudy Gobert
San Antonio Gets: Kyrie Irving
Jazz Get: Kawhi Leonard

Why are we giving up Kyrie Irving in the first place...

Hayward is also not coming off the bench if he's healthy..

Is the glass half-full or half-empty?

No way jazz trades gobert... especially to Boston

What if other assets (IE first round picks) get thrown into the deal?  Do you think that this lineup:

Irving
Brown
Tatum
Horford
Baynes

is better than this one?

Rozier
Brown
Tatum
Horford
Adams/Gobert?

I think the latter is much better come playoff time...

Kyrie Evans for Steven Adams?  No thanks. Poor return for Boston.

The Irving for Steven Adams trade isn't even close to the worst part of that post. Gordon Hayward coming off the bench deserves a suspension.

Kyrie for Gobert, when Kawhi is in play in the same trade?  Somebody is thinkiing too hard.

Proven all-star at arguably the most important position for an overpaid role player. No thanks.

We are loaded at wing, and KL isn't exactly the healthiest guy in the world...

Boston Gets: Rudy Gobert
San Antonio Gets: Kyrie Irving
Jazz Get: Kawhi Leonard

He's not even running yet.  The idea that he'll be healthy enough to start at the start of next season is pretty dang optimistic at this point...

In what world is Rozier better than Kyrie, and why are people so insistent on trading away Kyrie, when having a surplus of guards is always useful to have?

Because TR is proving to be an outstanding PG,, and looking down the line there is no way Boston can pay JB, JT, GH, and KI.
