    They should have got Butler at the deadline.

    If I'm the Celtics I either take Josh Jackson or move the pick for either Butler or George.

    Completely agree and was coming to post the same thing.

    However, if I'm the Celtics, I also try to trade back to maybe spots #3 or #4 and hope I can get Jackson there.

    I agree.

    Paul George? No. Fake (super)star.

    George or Butler don't help the Celtics beat Lebron. They should take Fultz and look to move Thomas. Although he's had a good year, he is such a liability on defense and can't be the best player on a championship team. He will be wanting the max, which will be around 200 million, and he's not worth that.

    I bet all teams wish their liabilities would lead them to the Eastern Conference finals.

    Would you want to sign a 5'9 PG who will be nearly 30 to a $200M Deal?

    If I'm the Lakers and going after a PG, I'd take Fultz or Fox before even thinking about Ball.

    Fultz is going to be a dynamic scorer at the next level and Fox has proven he's simply better than Ball.

    ^ Fultz isn't going to be an option.

    He should be IMO. Boston needs a wing or size. Fultz addresses neither of those.

    They move IT and they're right back where they were four years ago.

    Who says no to "DRussell to the Kings for the 10th pick?" What say you @Riley_McAtee ?


    What do you Lakers guys think about this proposed deal?

    That's a tough one. I want him to play the 2 with Fox at PG.

    Should the Celtics consider Tatum at 1?

    Why is Jonathan Isaac an afterthought? Brandon Ingram effect?
