Sign and trade Bam for Hayward on an expiring deal, preserving their 2021 cap space would be a dream.


There's no way they'd let him go be a free agent is there?


No, it's just a technicality. He'a not even a restricted free agent until next summer, but his cap hold will be much lower if they wait. Gives them another $15m in cap room, I think. Then they max him or match whatever offer sheet he signs.

No chance anyone gets close to bam..... that article shows you the dire straits that the rockets owner could potentially be in, especially if this virus continues or we do have a 2nd outbreak and how that could affect the team. Harden could be a star that shakes loose and is available around the league if morey is fired.

https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/29461674/nba-bubble-rankings-predicting-50-best-players-orlando

ESPN did a predicted ranking of the top 50 players in the bubble. They put the Celts at:

13 Tatum
20 Kemba
25 Jaylen
36 Hayward
38 Smart

I didn't notice anybody else w/ 5 players. Bucks, Raptors, Clips, and Thunder had 4 each.

Interesting point. But what's the last team to win a title without a top ten guy? Plus LeBron and Giannis are just leaps and bounds in front of enveryone.

I just noticed the virtual fans while watching a portion of the Pels game (were they in the Celts games? how did I miss them?) and wow! It looks so clunky. I can't quite put my finger on it but it looks really fake. I guess because they have no lower body. Are they slightly oversized? What do you guys think?

Hmmm it appears BBRef's search features are no longer free, which pretty much makes me obsolete as a poster/contributor lol. More memes/gifs from me then!

Just remember that I proposed New Zealand weeks before Howard Beck suggested it on his podcast.

Apparently someone is trying to track the awards ballot before it's being released.

LOL at Siakam and Butler being on the second team over Tatum

:o :roll: :banghead:

I'm suddenly a lot less disappointed the Celts weren't in a position to take a flyer on Michael Porter, Jr. in the 2018 draft.

1) **** Kyrie Irving.
2) We missed our window to true contention and it's time to take a step back, get assets, and set up for the next run.

Clarkson and Mitchell were both terrible in the 1st half on both ends. Yucky selfish basketball, Jazz can't get any rhythm. Gobert barely touching the ball.

Must be a conditioning thing. I'm not aware of any injury he's nursing.

Seriously how the **** did they not manage his minutes restriction to include the final few minutes of the game?
