Wouldn't the final product be when both the Nets pick and the extra pick we just got from Philly are complete?

Guess I could see Danny trading one or both of those further down the road and perhaps our grandkids will be the ones to see the final product. Very Happy

Celts getting Tatum means Gallo is redundant.

I would've wanted Gallo if the Celts got Fultz.

This was back before PG gave them the word.  Luckily for us Indy didn't take it because then we'd be ones with the rental and no Tatum or 3 other 1sts. Dodged a bullet.


Celtics trade offer for Paul George back at trade deadline, per league source: Brooklyn pick (wound up being No. 1) and 3 other first-rounders.

Everybody on this board is speculating and rationalizing just like the talking heads.
NONE of us know for a fact what was offered by either team yet so maybe we should just cool our jets.

It wouldn't suprise me.

Since the inception of the salary cap and draft lottery, the Lakers have been the fastest to go from one generation to the next to get back to the Finals.

Magic Johnson left in 1991 and the new generation Lakers of Shaq and Kobe were back in the Finals in 2000.

That's 9 years.

The Pistons of Isiah Thomas were on the decline after winning a championship in 1990.
Next time the Pistons were in the Finals was in 2004 with Rip Hamilton and Billups.

So the Celts making the Finals in 2020 is just about right.

KP didn't want to make another super team in the east. Crowder + 3 picks >>>> Dipo + Sabonis

The good news is the west is now so talented that the Lakers will surely end up the worst or 2nd worst team in the west.

Lakers pick for 2018 looking good right now.

Fierce,

Lottery seeds, barring pingpong ball moves, is based upon league-wide W-L record, not by conference. They could be the worst team in the west but still be better than Orlando, Indy and Chicago.

But because the balance of power shifted to the west, the east will also be weakened.

We don't need the Lakers to end up with the #1 pick, we just need the Lakers to end up with #2, #3, #4, or #5.

Sure the Lakers might have a better roster than a team like the Nets for example.
But the east is weaker than the west.
That means the Nets might still end up having a better record than the Lakers because the eastern conference is weaker than the western conference.

The perfect scenario is the Nets ending up with the #1 pick and the Lakers ending up with the #2 pick, just like this year, next year.
If that happens then the Celts will be picking #1 and #2.

Wow!

I am totally ok with Danny standing pat, keeping our #1 picks,and growing the team with the young stars to be. Paul George as a rental for talent. No way.l

Time for more waiting?  Perhaps, but I am totally happy with not doing any trade for Paul George as he was going to be leaving at the end of the next season no matter what.

I will sleep well tonight knowing that the Paul George mess is over.

Shocking, okay great LA will still suck without George, we still have the Nets and Lakers/Sacto pick and we still have Jaylen and Jayson.....so glad Danny didn't fock anything up.

Adam Himmelsbach: Forgot this earlier, but a source said the Celtics never had an extension in place in any scenario in which they’d acquire Paul George. 2 hours ago – via Twitter AdamHimmelsbach

well...it sure could have been interesting to see Butler AND George here.

BUtler went for Lavine (Combo G), Dunn (young PG) #7 pick.

hard to think Bradley and #3 pick isn't equal, throw in Rozier and it certainly is.

George for Oladipo ( SG) and Sabonis (Young Big).

seems like Crowder one of LA or Nets pick and Memphis pick wouldn't have trumped that deal.

anyone who thinks a roster with George, Butler, IT, Horford, Smart, Jaylen, Kelly (?) and Jerebko back, Zizic, Yabusele, #16 pick isn't better than whatever Danny puts together this year.....need to take off the Danny goggles.

Blake gone

Hayward...maybe?

I think Danny best get on the phone to Millsap's agent soon myself.

Only way Millsap is a good option is if he agrees to a 1 year deal.
Maybe a 2-year deal with the 2nd year non-guaranteed.

He's just too old for the Celts and will only eat up cap space in the long-term.
