  • When my account was born, Mark Blount was our C :(
If we could get Carter with Rozier, our 1st, and the Kings pick, I would do it.

I think the most likely outcome for the Sacto pick is 7-12 next year.

Why not get a comparable pick this year at a position of need? His floor seems pretty high - already has an NBA-ready body and some perimeter game, high BBIQ, willing defender. He might plug in for 10-15 minutes right away and be ready to replace Al in 2 years when (if we are lucky) Jaylen will have earned a fat contract.

I'd also do the Sacto pick and Rozier for Wendell Carter or Jaren Jackson Jr, and I'd include the Clippers pick and our pick next year in place of #27 if possible, to still get a backup guard.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

I think it's possible Ainge is after one of those bigs. I doubt it's Bomba. The rumor is Orlando's #6 could be had for Rozier and the Sac pick. Orlando needs a PG, and Rozier is a good fit.

From your lips...

Iíd take that deal right now.

Letís do this deal for the 6th pick, and the Grizzles trade where we send out the Grizzlies pick we own to a 3rd team with Parsons.  Add fillers and sweeteners if needed.  Draft Doncic and a big. Done and done. Lol

A Sherrod Blakely tweeted out that the Celtics will remain at 27 and not trade up. I think this is the confirmation that we were all waiting for. As history tells us, we should assume the opposite of what Sherrod tells us. Now I expect the Celtics to trade the #27 pick and get into the top 10.

Just when I was ready for a quiet day, now we know something major will happen- I will be in the air when draft is happening. I guess I need to buy wifi now! 😁

Haven't we all heard this before?  The only time was legit surprised was when we traded last years 1st to Philly.  I'm willing to bet Danny drafts or trades to draft someone we've never even talked about.
