not every team has the same financial path that we do going forward and if the barometer for a trade is another team ''wants him'' its a terrible valuation of assets.
Um, How the celtics and other teams value him is the definition of how to evaluate an asset.
You gauge his value to the celtics internally. If you decide he does not fit, but is still desirable to other teams, then he makes for a valuable asset, because then you weigh what you can get in return for him
If it is better than what is available in free agency or better than nothing at all, then even a jb that doesnt fit is a valuable asset
Man, lol, i remember why i dont internet very much
than by all means don't internet much because you said '' if teams are going to be interested at jaylen on a max, that it makes more sense for us to extend him''
the whole point of the argument is that to extend him it will cost the celtics the max....so your entire lame idea is built on a faulty premise. if the celtics could extend jaylen for less than the max they would most likely be interested but given what others from his draft have signed for and the fact that like you mentioned he could get a max deal next offseason- he won't accept less now.
that's what the debate is, trading him now when you may be able to receive an established all star level talent for him as oppose to giving him his max (which he will ask for and get elsewhere) and hoping he lives up to his potential.
maybe that's why you don't '' internet'' much because you're not very good at it.
Lol wow. Since youre so awesome at the internet, maybe you could share some of your wisdom with me and help me better at it in said of being do aggressive.
Do you offer an internet message board mentorship program? Or are you more of just an internet talent evaluator? PM me, friend.
Pleasantries aside, youre straight up wrong.
Yea, obviously if you get leonard for brown and filler, you trade him.
BUT, if you are considering signing a player to a max contract, but are unsure of the fit or how that young player’s potential will manifest, if you know that other teams covet him, that immediately alleviates the risk in signing up
Why? Because if it doesnt work out or you dont like him, you can then trade that max contract for favorable assets.
If nobody else wanted him, as you stated, you dont have to pay him a max anyway
If you think he is going to fall off a cliff immediately after signing a max or if the perfect trade comes along...trade him
But my whole point is that demand sets the market value of an asset. And signing a 22 year old coming off a down year who still commands interest at the max around the league sounds like a low risk transaction
