NBA Trade Deadline Rumors: Tyreke Evans first-round pick price tag too much for suitors



By: Jared Weiss | 44 minutes ago



With Lou Williams off the market, Tyreke Evans is the hottest commodity for playoff teams looking to add a sixth man scorer. But the Memphis Grizzlies want a first-round pick and Woj reports teams are not biting.

It’s the typical song and dance leading up to the trade deadline. An overachieving player on an expiring deal is exactly who a series of playoff teams want to help get them an extra round or two further in May. They know it’s unlikely they keep him after the season, but the team selling him wants a first-round pick for their hot commodity.

Everyone says they are not going to pay a heavy long-term price for a liquid short-term asset, but in game theory, someone always breaks. Will it be Boston this time? Unlikely.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Celtics are among the playoff teams who have been unwilling to meet the asking price.

Sources: Memphis still holding out for a first-round pick to move Tyreke Evans — and Boston, Denver and Philadelphia have resisted offers beyond either a young player or a second-rounder. First-rounders have never been gripped so tightly in the league

Woj notes that first-round picks have hit their highest relative value perhaps ever. Boston has been toward the forefront of holding onto first rounders in the big three roster development era as a means to build out depth, rather than the more traditional methods of trading for vets or signing vets with exceptions on an annual basis. The entire league has caught up to this methodology and has made acquiring firsts more and more difficult. Teams tend to move unprotected firsts for either good starters or to move off of dead money now, with borderline starters like Evans or Avery Bradley fetching multiple second round picks at best in recent markets.

What makes the Evans situation unique is that he is on a one-year deal and therefore does not have bird rights this offseason, so whomever he plays for after 3 pm Thursday can only use cap space or the MLE to re-sign him. Evans’ market value could exceed the $8.6 million MLE this summer, although the lack of cap space out there could make it pretty possible he ends up signing for less than that.

Evans isn’t really a buyout candidate, but that market projects to be robust. Many reporters around the country, including yours truly, have been hearing from team and player sources that the buyout market should be filled with an array of capable vets with playoff experience that can fit into most needs out there. Woj is noting a few hours ahead of the deadline that teams are balking at trade demands because they see plenty of potential to save their assets and still come away with a good player once the waiver wire goes into hyperdrive after Thursday.

Several teams tell ESPN that they're already easing out of the trade market today to focus on filling needs with what is expected to be a strong post-deadline pool of free agents in the buyout market.

This is certainly the kind of stuff teams will leak to try to get the prices to go down on players like Evans, Bradley, Courtney Lee, Marco Belinelli and the slew of vets on the block today. But it is not a misnomer. Joe Johnson has made it clear he wants out. Rodney Hood basically said he wants out Thursday, although it’s much more likely teams are willing to at least give up a second-rounder for him than someone like Johnson.

Frankly, as good as Evans has been this year, it’s hard to justify giving up even a fake-first for him. It’s also hard for Boston to establish the protection levels to create a fake-first, because they are so late in the round with their record. Boston has always maximized their roster building efficiency by treating every asset – regardless of prominence – as a carefully curated value play. They follow universal theory, treating a prestige asset like the number one pick as a relative value asset that can be had for the right price. They will do the same with even the latest second-rounder, as was evidenced by the Isaiah Thomas trade post-agreement negotiations. Even that dragged on nearly to the deadline.

Ainge’s front office is as calculated and meticulous as it gets. That won’t change now and it won’t change in the future.

MY NOTE:  As I said on another thread, our Danny was light-years ahead of every other GM on the value of draft picks.  And we all laughed at him (or thought he was being crazy)...I remember Larry Bird himself laughing and saying that someone should tell Danny that he can only have 15 players on the team and that he didn't need that many draft picks. Love Larry but he was short-sighted on this.

If the reported deals are all true (a big “if”), the Celtics’ offer for Evans was … less than serious, compared to others.

If the offer was less than serious compared to others, other offers were not that good either. Evans remains on the team.

The Boston Celtics fell short in their quest to acquire Memphis Grizzlies guard Tyreke Evans before Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, but it wasn’t for lack of trying.

The Celtics talked to the Grizzlies about a potential trade minutes before the deadline, per HoopsHype’s Alex Kennedy, who also reported what exactly Boston was offering in a deal.

Alex Kennedy ✔️ @AlexKennedyNBA During the Celtics-Grizzlies talks, I'm told Boston offered two second-round picks and Guerschon Yabusele for Tyreke Evans. It doesn't appear they agreed to terms before the deadline. https://twitter.com/AlexKennedyNBA/status/961691684248662016 … 12:04 PM - Feb 8, 2018 261 233 people are talking about this



According to USA TODAY’s Celtics Wire, the Grizzlies preferred to acquire Marcus Smart in exchange for Evans and a second-round draft pick, or a first-round pick in exchange for just Evans. The Celtics weren’t willing to meet those demands, and the Grizzlies ended up keeping Evans, who’s set to become a free agent after this season.

Evans, the fourth overall pick in 2009, is averaging 19.5 points, five assists and five rebounds in 31.1 minutes per game this season.
