Looks like by drafting Robert Williams, we are no longer interested in Dwight Howard?

I say why not both.  Williams might not be ready for rotation minutes for a while, and Howard just put 16 and 12 last year.

I guess Baynes is a goner in this instance

From what I read, it sounds like re-signing Baynes will be a priority.

It may come down to this.

Would you rather sign Baynes, both a great fit and teammate, for the MLE or would you sign Dwight, a better player but substantially worse teammate, for the veteran's minimum?

You know what you're going to get with Baynes. A solid role player who is good for 15-20 minutes of bruising defense a night, and he'll be the first guy to cheer the team on from the bench. At the price of the mid-level exception, Baynes is the perfect backup big for this team.

On the other hand, you don't know what you're going to get with Dwight. He still is an above average player who is good for 25-30 minutes of terrific play on both sides of the floor, but that may come at the expense of a happy locker room. At the price of a veteran's minimum, Dwight is an overqualified backup big no matter where he goes.

Personally, I think that will be a tough decision for Danny.

Jeesh. This is tough. I love Baynes as well.

I really hope GSW can't get Dwight. He's like an uber Javale McGee

Non-guaranteed minimum.

Wow, wonder if he would consider that.

If we re-sign Baynes you can rest assured we won't move on Dwight.  Our bigs rotation becomes Horford, Baynes, Theis, Morris, and Williams.  No room for him.

I wouldn't sign Baynes for more than his non bird offer which is around $5 mill. I would sign Howard with the taxpayer MLE which is also around 5 mill. I think there are enough minutes for both, especially if Marcus moves on which I expect.

When were the Celtics ever interested in Howard? Some fans, sure, but there's been nothing put out the Cs are interested. Seriously doubt they ever will be.

Calvin Watkins: Boston and Atlanta have secured the first meetings with the center. Portland and Charlotte have also expressed interest in Howard, who declined a player option with the Rockets at $23.2 million.

We've been linked for the past few years now. But I'm pretty sure as of recently that has cooled down.

But recently Sherrod A. Blakely is reporting that we're interested. Which means..

We probably aren't.  8) ::) ::) ::)

I stand corrected but would be completely stunned for the Cs to do anything with Howard. Guy is a clown and would be awful around the youth

After drafting Williams and with the likelihood Baynes is coming back... I don't see the C's even considering Dwight anymore. Even if they did, how many minutes would he get on the floor? Not much.

2018 Mock Trade Deadline (New York Knicks)

Roster: Porzingis, Kanter, Hardaway Jr, Julius Randle, Schroder, Beasley, Alex Abrines, Jarrett Jack, Frank Ntilikina, Lance Thomas, Kyle Singler, Josh Huestis, Ron Baker, Trey Burke, Luke Kornet, Isaiah Hicks

So yall think a 18 year old 27th pick rookie is what makes us not draft a vet who can snag 30 boards on any given night? He is the 27th pick ppl...Yabusele was higher than that and hardly get burn what the heck..... Dwight  would by far our best bet at Center  idk what yall smoking but I want it.

If you had the choice of Baynes or Dwight Howard for same pay please explain to me how you pick Baynes??
