Yeah...not gonna happen. The C's are not trading Hayward to fit in Lebron somehow. I don't even think LeBron likes Boston. Houston is my bet. They can create cap space and add him to Harden/Paul.
I think you'd be crazy not to do this if you could.It's a bad look, I know. You don't trade marquee free agents, and frankly, the guy to go would be Hayward, not Horford.That said, it's hard to feel too sorry for a guy that's making $30M per year, and Ainge is not one to feel sorry. It might deter future star FA's, but why would we need to sign future FA's when we have Lebron?The fact is that Lebron is still the best player in the world, and if you can get him, you DO.
Brian Scalabrine was on First Things First today during the segment where they were discussing Lebron's next (best) destination. Scalabrine said Houston, and Philly is the 2nd choice (IF he doesn't stay in CLE of course)He thinks Lebron in Houston beats Golden State, but he's not convinced Lebron in PHI beats Golden State unless they somehow bring back all their legit perimeter shooters like Reddick, Belinelli, Illyasova, etc. with exceptions (although they could still make it out of the East). Also for the same reason there's risk in Houston with CP3's injury history, there's also legit risk with Embiid and Fultz going forward too in that regard.Nick and Jenna brought up Antoine saying Lebron should go to Boston, and Scalabrine laughed but acknowledged it as a possibility. Very unlikely but he did think Lebron would fit in Boston and would definitely win titles with them. He doesn't think Danny is *that* cold-blooded though where he'd trade Irving in a deal to get him, and of course the C's have no cap room so that's a big problem anyways.
