Celtics have been rumored to have interest, however, there are rumors that it is fake stuff and the 76ers are trying to say that the Celtics have interest in him, when they really dont. However, because of the rumors that they have interest, I decided to do them. Below is why each of the 3 team should, and could very easily say yes.

GRIZZLIES: For the Grizzlies, they have a lot of young forwards, and, Dillion Brooks, who really is about where he will be. Although the near-20 points looks good, he has mediocre efficiency, and, is shooting 44 percent from 3, a number which he almost certainly cant keep up with for the rest of the season. He is shooting under 47 percent from 2s, and, if we were to take 3s out of the equation, he is well below average efficiency. Although you may argue that it inst fair to take out 3s as they are a big part of the league, my point is that Dillion Brooks won't be shooting over 40 percent on them for the rest of the season, so, if we were to take a look at his numbers without 3s, it isnt very good and inefficient. In addition, lets look at who they have at the wings. You have Brandon Clarke, Desmond Bane, Zhaire Williams, Jarrett Culver and Kyle Anderson. This is hurting the Grizzlies being able to pump up Anderson's value to flip him at the trade deadline, taking minutes away from the rest as well. Getting Nesmith, who has potential with Richardson who could be flipped to a 3rd team with a 1st and 2 2nds is even a fair trade for him.

Chance they say yes: 60 percent (ONE NESMITH PLAYS BETTER)

CELTICS: If they actually have interest in him, then this is a deal that they would almost certainly accept. Losing 2 1sts, 2 2nds, Richardson, Nesmith and Smart is too bad, however, they get Ben Simmons who could create a big 3 with Brown, Tatum and Simmons. The Celtics would be losing a lot, however, Nesmith is having a down-season, Richardson is a role player, too bad but not a humungous lose, and Smart is worse then Simmons, and, the picks would probably be late and not lose too much. If the Celtics want Simmons, then they probably say yes because this gets him at a resonable price.

76ERS: For the 76ers, they get Brooks and Smart who would add defense for them, there D would be even better then last years. And, they would even get a 1st. Smart and rooks would full the 2 needing positions, a 1 and a 3 and then they wouldn't lose defense which would be nice. Smart could bring the playmaking for them as well.
