Comment Opinions Please. Is This Good? Read The Full Description As All The Trade Details, Draft Picks, & Free Agent Signings Are There.

1. Send Aaron Nesmith, Daniel Theis, & A 2023 2nd To The Indiana Pacers For TJ Warren In A Sign & Trade Agreement

Why ?: Boston needs another secondary scorer after Brown & Tatum who can also shoot well off the ball. Warren would be a great addition to this Celtics squad.

2. Trade A Lottery Protected 2024 Option To Swap 1sts More Favorable To The New Orleans Pelicans For DeVonte Graham & 2022 UTA 2nd

Why ?: In order to add another point guard off the bench behind Smart that can provide even more outside shooting. Graham can also play alongside Smart in the backcourt if the Celtics choose.

3. Draft Josh Minott(PF, 6’8 195) With The #52 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft

Why ?: Minott is a great inside scorer, rebounder, & shot blocker. He has the potential to be Timelord’s long term front court partner if he’s developed correctly under Udoka, Horford, & the coaching staff.

4. Draft Peyton Watson(SF, 6’8 200) With The #53 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft

Why ?: He’s a solid point forward that knows how to facilitate & be an offensive playmaker. Watson has great size for a SF & is a nice rebounder who can also defend well.

5. Sign Joe Ingles To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum

Why ?: Ingles could be the missing piece Boston needs to return to the finals & actually win it. He’s the offensive initiator they need to get everyone set & in position. And at 6’8, Ingles can play the 1-4 & provide the Celtics nice versatility, if he’s healthy though.

6. Sign Bryn Forbes To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum

Why ?: An excellent 3pt shooter to have off the bench & provide a spark.

7. Sign Damian Jones To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum

Why ?: A solid backup center who can protect the rim & catch lobs.


Celtics Ideal Starting Lineup:

Smart, Brown, Warren, Tatum, & Horford

Backup Five:

Graham, White, Ingles, Williams, & Timelord(6th)

Rest Of Bench:

Pritchard, Forbes, Watson, Minott, & Jones

Two Way Players/G-League:

Matteo Spagnolo & Giordano Bortolani


Why Indiana Does This?

To basically add a young player, future 2nd, & not lose TJ Warren for nothing. Nesmith is a young prospect who could do well if developed correctly & Theis is a nice backup big man that can play both the PF & C position.


Why New Orleans Does This?

They save $11.5 million in order to get comfortably under the luxury line & also receive a more favorable swap. With Alvarado’s ascension, Graham is now expendable.
