Celtics- Kemba has been playing good but the Celtics just need to move up a bit getting a tall playmaker who can defend pretty well in Lonzo is a smart decision he gives guys like Tatum and Brown to do what they need to do. They also get a top 10 pick from last year and Toppin and some draft picks. While giving up Langford and Nesmith is a lot they havent rly played and theyre getting more picks.

Knicks- They use their buttload of cap space on Kemba who is from NY and will show out with Randle Barett and the knicks bringing back their core from last year. Giving up picks is ok for a contending team.

Pelicans- Lonzo is in on numerous trade rumors or free agency destinations. Lavar doesnt want him there so they ship him to boston. Langford is unproven and well fit in at the 2 guard. Nesmith is high volume 3 point shooter and will provide it off the bench they are very young and they might lose value but thats what a sign and trade is.
