I'm not advocating trading kyrie. I actually really like him and am leaning toward keeping him... Just want to know what the market is for kyrie... He has 1 year left.


Maybe porzingis? Or a lotto pick? Porzingis seems like a gamble now after the acl surgery

I actually thought about Porzingis recently.  Havent seen it floated yet though. Should make a good discussion.  TP.

Porzingis might not play next season depending on recovery...

Plus he’ll be RFA in 2019 too.

Can we please stop these ridiculous ideas of trading our best player, simply because his back up is playing well. Kyrie is an elite player. I love what Rozier has provided in Kyrie's absence, but he is not close to Irving's level.

I second this.  And I appreciate very much that the OP is leaning toward keeping him.

I want to keep him also

I think the OP is thinking what if this team can pull it off and win it all.  Aftermath

exactly. And due diligence. Checking value for the sake of knowing. Kyrie is one of.my favorite players and I hope we keep him but always nice to know what we can get.

Phoenix showed a lot of interested in Kyrie last summer, if you're Ainge maybe you make the call to your former team about that #1 overall?



NOT.

As Zach Lowe mentioned in his podcast with Bill Simmons, they may have to think about trading Kyrie a few years down the line, when Tatum and Brown are up for extensions. Perhaps this is a more realistic hypothetical - what Kyrie in a few years will fetch, in that market.

Someone on a facebook forum wanted the Celtics to trade Kyrie to Orlando for the #6 and Bismack Biyombo and all I could do was laugh.

I don't believe Kyrie's value is very high for a couple of reasons.  Durability concerns are an obvious worry for any franchise.  Then there's also the fact he might kill any trade by telling teams he wont resign with them after next season. 

Either way I doubt the Celtics realistically consider moving Kyrie.  A lot of people are getting caught up in the fact that he isn't a two-way player.  The flip side of this argument is that he possesses an elite offensive skill set this is rare in the NBA.  His individual performances in the past two NBA finals have been impressive to say the least.  Imagine Kyrie on the biggest stage surrounded by a team full of athletic two-way players?
