I am prepared to make a bold prediction for the NBA Trade Deadline. My prediction is that the Boston Celtics will get Jimmy Butler at the NBA trade deadline, as well as either Nikola Mirotic, Robin Lopez or Taj Gibson. --------------------------------------- WHY IT MAKES SENSE Chicago wanted to move Butler on draft day in preparation to rebuild. Then, they found out that Dwyane Wade actually wanted to come to Chicago, so they held on to him. The Bulls and Celtics have spoken multiple times, and with the Bulls seriously low-balling fans this season, currently 9th in the conference, and with the capability of Doug McDermott while learning from Wade, seeking to get this year's Brooklyn pick wouldn't be a bad idea. --------------------------------------- HE MIGHT BE AVAILABLE, AND CHEAP By the NBA trade deadline, the Bulls will really know if they are gonna miss the playoffs, get swept by Cleveland first round, or take their chances with Toronto/Boston. I think the Bulls will be out of the playoffs, and I think they will move Butler, Rondo, Mirotic and Lopez. Ultimate rebuilding stage. And honestly, Chicago may not want much. They own their pick this year and have McDermott and Bobby Portis to try and play. We could be talking as simple as a mirage of picks and Jerebko for Butler & Mirotic. However this is one of those moves that needs a ton of other factors to fall in place, and a trade that you wouldn't see any other day, except the deadline. #celtics #trades #weneedhelp #theperfectmove #bold #verybold #predictions #dannyainge #trades #averybradley #netspick #draft #jimmybutler #nikolamirotic #inaingewetrust

Bleacher Report said the Boston Celtics are the "biggest dark horse" in the NBA Championship race. Isaiah Thomas is putting up ridiculous numbers, Avery Bradley is playing the best offense of his career, Al Horford has fit perfectly, Jae Crowder is having one of the best shooting seasons in the league and I've been pleased with the bench play of Marcus Smart & Kelly Olynyk, as well as the development of Jaylen Brown & Terry Rozier. But we aren't dark horses in reality. We are there. There are 5 teams people believe are truly ready to try and get a ring now: Golden State, Cleveland, San Antonio, Houston and Toronto. The only one of those teams that blew us out were the Warriors. Two 6-point losses to the Cavs, a 6 & 7 point loss to SAS, a 1 point L to Harden, and a 7 & 8 point loss to Toronto. All those games were affected by the lack of rebounding, some by injuries. If the Celtics add the right piece (*cough* Hassan Whiteside *cough*)and remain healthy, they are ready, NOW. Stevens admits we need a rebounder & consistent defender, do your thing DA. #celtics #nbachamps #soclose #notthatfaroff #betterthanyouthink #dannyainge #makeatrade #oneguyaway #pleasehelp #thequest #banner18

If you've kept an eye on things lately, you will notice something strange has been going on in Philly with Jahlil Okafor. Here are 3 reasons I think Okafor will be out of Philadelphia very soon ๐Ÿ‘‡ ---------------------------------------------- 1. THEY DON'T PLAY HIM Saturday was Okafor's first time playing real minutes for the Sixers in the New Year. He dropped 26 points, which increases his trade value, but the legit only reason Okafor started is because the 76ers still have rest nights for Embiid, and they were losing pretty much the whole game. That was the first time he played more than 5 minutes in 2017. For the Sixers, a 26 point performance, only ups his value for them to ship him out of here. ----------------------------------------------- 2. NERLENS NOEL Nerlens Noel was at one point the most likely to be traded player in the league less than a month ago. They removed Okafor from the rotation and gave Noel his minutes, and apparently Nerlens is happy with that. The rumors of Noel to either Boston, Toronto, Cleveland or LA have really gone down, the Sixers will trade a big at the deadline, Embiid, Simmons, Ilyasova, Saric have nothing to worry about, and Noel doesn't either. ----------------------------------------------- 3. NOEL & EMBIID WORK The Sixers really want a center willing to come off the bench for the first 3 quarters, so they can have Embiid and a shooter whether it be Saric or Ilyasova on the floor for scoring, then they want to pair that big man with Embiid in the fourth and protect the paint and win the game on defense. Noel has worked very well with Embiid, and honestly, Ben Simmons, Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid in the front court makes you wanna maybe stay out of the paint. #celtics #trades #weneedhelp #jahlilokafor #onhisway #seeyaphilly #byebye #brettbrown #nerlensnoel #joelembiid #bensimmons #rebounding #scorer #helpushelpyou #okafortoboston #dannyainge #makeamove #youngtalent #needsacoach #undeveloped

Ok so doing a bunch of math based on how much we lose by against the Cavs and Raptors and based on who the leading rebounders are in those games, and taking consideration of Amir's stats, my numbers came out that the Celtics would need to add a forward, small or power, that can score at minimum 15.5 points and 8.1 rebounds a game to compete for a championship, while assuring they keep: Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Al Horford, Jae Crowder, Marcus Smart, Kelly Olynyk and Gerald Green. Here are some players that either are putting up those numbers or are capable that the Celtics could get ๐Ÿ‘‡ 1. Nikola Vucevic, C; Magic 2. Paul Millsap, PF; Hawks 3. Kenneth Faried, PF; Nuggets 4. Rudy Gay, SF; Kings 5. Derrick Favors, PF; Jazz 6. Nerlens Noel, C; 76ers 7. Blake Griffin, PF; Clippers 8. Tyson Chandler, C; Suns 9. Anthony Davis, C; Pelicans 10. Hassan Whiteside, C;Heat 11. Jahlil Okafor, C; 76ers โ€ขNote: Andrew Bogut, C; Mavericks, would not help in the scoring, maybe 5 PPG, but he does average 9.1 RPG, and would be very cheap. The best player the C's could get: Anthony Davis or Hassan Whiteside. The best realistic player the Celtics could get: Nikola Vucevic. The player the C's will probably end up with: Andrew Bogut. #celtics #trades #weneedhelp #scorer #rebounder #championshipcontenders #almostthere #pleaseainge #dannyainge #makeatrade

The New Orleans Pelicans would be asking for Jaylen Brown, Avery Bradley, Kelly Olynyk and both Nets picks... how bad do you guys want Davis ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Celtics would probably get Terrence Jones out of the deal as well.

Five of our possible trade candidates seem to have similar reactions to Danny Ainge's recent comments on the Nets pick ๐Ÿ˜ Fred Toucher, 98.5 the Sports Hub: "Have trade talks started about the upcoming Brooklyn pick" Danny Ainge: "Yes they have. Nothing close or imminent, but there are plenty of people calling. It's a valuable piece so we are going to explore that". The Celtics put up a horrendous effort in the paint tonight against the Raptors and in my opinion need to trade Jae Crowder and Kelly Olynyk immediately. The Nets pick also gives a shot at some of these guys. My favorite possible addition is Derrick Favors of Utah. He's been slacking big time on the scoring end recently, a change of scenery may be good for him. Over multiple borderline All-Star seasons, Favors has posted 16 points and 9 rebounds a game. He's worth just under a max contract and may be obtainable for something as simple as Crowder, Olynyk and a future pick that doesn't have Brooklyn in its name. What are your thoughts on this pick, keep it at all costs or pursue a trade fast, no inbetween at this point. #celtics #trades #weneedhelp #now #dannyainge #wecantwaitanotherday #killingus #failure #jaecrowder #kellyolynyk #jonasjerebko #alltrash #yourfault #youblewit #youloseainge #makeadamntrade #possibilities #derrickfavors #anthonydavis #demarcuscousins #jimmybutler #paulmillsap

You know the saying don't let the door hit you on the way out? Well to be blatant, LET THE DOOR SMACK YOU IN YOUR USELESS FACE'S JAE CROWDER, KELLY OLYNYK, JONAS JEREBKO AND TYLER ZELLER. Jonas Valanciunas collects 23 rebounds as the Celtics fall to the Raptors after leading the whole game. "Avery Bradley was out!" Blah blah blah, we don't need the excuses, of course he would've helped, but we lost this game in the paint. Al Horford needs to grow a pair and grab the freaking ball. Jae Crowder is a joke, could not have defended DeRozan any worse. Jerebko and Olynyk are lost on the court and Zeller is an injury prone waste of money. This team should shift to small ball, Isaiah and Bradley with Smart at the 3, Horford at PF and goddamn I am done waiting GET DEMARCUS COUSINS. However, sources say DMC is no longer available, and I don't feel bad. You knew the horrid post play was gonna blow this team up, so this is on you Danny Ainge. I hope Cousins isn't available, Ainge didn't wake up in time and he needs to suffer the consequences. This team will not win an NBA Championship until Jae Crowder is long gone and they have an ADVANTAGE in the post. And Danny Ainge's precious Brooklyn picks produce GUARDS not bigs. #celtics #raptors #choked #wemissyouaverybradley #getwellsoon #cuts #jaecrowder #trash #kellyolynyk #shouldntbehere #jonasjerebko #gobacktoeurope #tylerzeller #wasteofspace #dannyainge #demarcuscousins #notavailable #youblewit #yourfault #youloseainge

Ok guys, I've been thinking about Celtics trade rumors and what not and Andrew Bogut, Nerlens Noel, Kenneth Faried, just doesn't appeal to me anymore. So here's my big question before I go to bed, unless the Celtics can get that superstar like Jimmy Butler or DeMarcus Cousins, do they pretty much sit pat for the remainder of the season despite maybe one or two minor low cost moves? The team is 1 game behind 2nd in the East. Personally, I find this team better than Toronto, and I know I'm supposed to be a believer, but cmon are we really gonna get past Cleveland without Butler or Cousins? Probably not, so with a high chance at the first pick in what could be the best draft class, EVER (opinions from sports publishers) do we just see where our hard work and heart can get is and make a free agent & rookie double splash in the summer, maybe a Markelle Fultz and Gordon Hayward offseason?

Huge week for the Celtics. Boston sits 1.5 games behind Toronto in the East, Toronto has got a tough matchup that they will most likely lose against Houston tonight. Celtics will visit Toronto on Tuesday, a chance at the second seed, then will get an opportunity to bounce back against the Wizards on Wednesday and face rival Atlanta on Friday. Even with a Toronto W tonight, the C's have multiple chances at claiming the 2nd seed this week! Also, Boston can make a trade afterwards to secure this 2nd seed, stay tuned and lets go Celtics ๐Ÿ€ #Celtics #opportunities #2ndseed #east #raptors #wizards #hawks #bigweek #letsgoceltics #nba #basketball #trades #dannyainge #makeadamntrade #donewaiting #butlertoboston #millsaptoboston #rudytoboston

Is it time for Jae Crowder to go? Crowder went to twitter after being angered with Celtics fans cheering Gordon Hayward. Crowder apologized for his outburst, then Boston cheered Joel Embiid next game. He is hot and bothered, and his productivity has hit rock bottom.

Rumors say the Celtics could shock the league and acquire BOTH Rudy Gay and Brook Lopez. The Nets current asking price for Brook Lopez (all teams): Two 1st round picks. The Kings current asking price for Rudy Gay (all teams): PG and replacement SF. Here's a surprise too, Terry Rozier is actually of high interest to the Kings. The Celtics have a chance to create a team of Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Rudy Gay, Al Horford and Brook Lopez for the cost of Jae Crowder, Terry Rozier, a pick in 2018 and a pick in 2019. This team sounds somewhat too good to be true, but Rudy Gay and Lopez are part of the top ten most likely to be traded players by the deadline. Another thing I've noticed about Danny Ainge is he doesn't usually trade for just one player, he likes to bring in multiple guys. Kevin Garnett & Ray Allen. Jason Terry & Courtney Lee. Isaiah Thomas & Jae Crowder. If we want a big move from Ainge, it might involve 2 players. Is this worth a shot? #celtics #trades #rumors #rudygay #brooklopez #boston #kings #sacramento #nets #brooklyn #draftpicks #weneedhelp #tradingseason #dosomething #nba #basketball #dannyainge #makeyourmove #heregoesnothing

Whatever it takes. Jimmy Butler to Boston? The Chicago Bulls have listed superstar SF Jimmy Butler as available. The asking price on draft day was Jae Crowder, Avery Bradley, Marcus Smart, the 3rd pick and the 16th pick (Jaylen Brown and Guerschon Yabusele). This was beyond too much. However, with the Bulls' mediocrity this season, bouncing in and out of the 8th seed, rebuilding may not be out of the question. The Bulls may be asking for Crowder, Amir Johnson (allowing them to trade Mirotic), a Nets pick and probably a pick in the future (2019-2020). What would you do to get Jimmy Butler paired with Thomas and Horford? #celtics #trades #rumors #jimmybutler #buckets #tradingseason #weneedhelp #dannyainge #dosomething #butlertoboston #basketball #thequest #banner18 #doitnow JIMMY BUTLER SWAP AND EDIT MADE BY @celtics.strong

Jae Crowder had some words for Celtics fans after the team capped off a victory against the Utah Jazz. The Jazz pertain one superstar, SF Gordon Hayward who is the free agent favorite this year in Boston. Crowder matched up against Hayward and was not happy to hear cheers when Hayward got the ball or scored a basket, Crowder found this offensive and took to twitter. A fan told Jae this is how our city rolls, we want to win and we want the best players to get us there, appreciate the passion or leave, Jae Crowder responded with "I HAVE NO PROBLEM LEAVING IT.!". I can't lie, Crowder had a good performance last night but I have become a fan of him less and less over time. Boston made him, he was a role player on Dallas's bench averaging 5 a game before the Celtics took him, and to act like he can just leave and think it's a huge deal is absurd ๐Ÿ˜‚ I would take Gordon Hayward over Crowder any day, the numbers speak for themselves Jae, 22.4 and 6 per game > 13.3 and 5 per game! I do not hate Crowder by any means, but asking the fans Hayward or him is not a question he wants the answer to. #celtics #twitter #angrytweets #youmad #jaecrowder #gordonhayward #comments #freeagency #haywardtoboston #dontstartawaryoucantwin #dannyainge #jazz #utah #boston #beef

NBA Gametime and ABC News have reported that the Atlanta Hawks are fielding trade offers for Paul Millsap. Fielding is defined as broad and open to expand, so before we get into this, understand that the Hawks are not shopping Paul Millsap, but are open to offers. Millsap has been one of the most underrated players in the league in recent years. He averages 18 and 8 for the Hawks and provides strong defense, and fits like a glove in good systems. His productivity sky-rocketed after transferring from Utah to Atlanta. Millsap is amongst the top PFs in the league, a position that has grown barren, but he is very talented and of course best friends with Al Horford a former teammate. The entire Hawks team was impressed by the Boston crowd in last year's playoffs, ultimately reeling in Horford.I would love to see Millsap in green reunited with Horford, playing along Thomas and Bradley all under Brad Stevens. What would you give up for Millsap? Also, Atlanta is in fact shopping SG Kyle Korver, however Celtics are not interested. #celtics #trades #rebounding #weneedhelp #dosomething #change #changeisgood #dannyainge #makeyourmove #paulmillsap #kylekorver

The final of 5 Possible Deals the Celtics Could Really Make, I'm sure you saw it coming, DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins is a 6'11 all around tank. Cousins, Davis and Towns share the definition of what it means to be a modern center. Dribble and create space, score in the post and from the perimeter, grab boards, make tight passes and overall dominate the court. Cousins is hands down the best center in the NBA. He averages 29.1 PPG and 10.5 RPG. He is a killer. However, Cousins has a serious issue with his emotions and how he controls it. He is more than aggressive, he plays angry, he plays like an ass , which has its ups and downs, but Cousins has been a part of the worst sports franchise of the century, so it's easy to understand. DMC gives us an advantage over ANY team in the league. ----------------------------------------- TRADE COST To Boston: DeMarcus Cousins (C) To Sacramento: Jae Crowder/Marcus Smart, 2018 Nets 1st Round Pick, 2019 Clippers 1st Round pick, James Young. -------------------------------------------- OVERALL IMPACT If there's any hope of the Celtics winning a championship this season, it starts with DeMarcus Cousins. If things click, this team will make the 2017 NBA Finals. DeMarcus will bully Tristan Thompson enough to surpass Cleveland, Toronto could get crushed in 5 games, and the Celtics would get there shot against GSW or San Antonio. Cousins would average over 30 points a game in Boston. No doubt. Taking his talent and productivity to a winning squad makes him more favorable for MVP, and Cousins will make the All-NBA First Team in green. -------------------------------------------- Probability of Occurrence: 55% Month of Occurrence: February #celtics #deals #trades #demarcuscousins #kings #makeyourmove #dosomething #weneedhelp #dannyainge

The fourth of 5 Possible Deals the Celtics Could Really Make, Jahlil Okafor. Okafor is a 6'11 score-first center currently of the Philadelphia 76ers, who most believe will be traded. Okafor won the national championship at Duke, many said that if he didn't get injured on draft night he may've been first overall, definitely 2nd. Okafor is another victim of Philly's "process". Drafting too many big men that all turned out to be pretty talented, and of course none of them are happy to be benched. Okafor averaged 10.9 PPG and 4.9 RPG off of Philadelphia's bench , last season as a starter he brought in 17 and 7 a game. Other staff members around the NBA say Danny Ainge loves Jahlil Okafor, his footwork and moves in the post result in a lot of post faders, fouls and strong finishes. Okafor is GOOD. Some draw comparisons of him to Tim Duncan, however losing isn't mixing well with him, the easiest way to change that, is to get him out of losing and bring him where the banners lay. ----------------------------------------- TRADE COST Keep in mind Okafor was the Sixers' third overall pick. They will need multiple future picks on exchange. To Boston: Jahlil Okafor (C) To Philly: 2019 Grizzlies & Clippers 1st round picks, 2021 Celtics 1st round pick, 2017 Celtics 2nd round pick. ------------------------------------------- OVERALL IMPACT Jahlil Okafor is very talented. As a Celtic, he could average 20 points a game by playing alongside the pass-first Al Horford. As a Celtic, Jahlil would be an All-Star within his first 3 seasons in green. Adding Okafor would allow us to step on Toronto and give Cleveland a real head ache. -------------------------------------------- Probability of Occurrence: 70% Month of Occurrence: February #celtics #deals #trades #jahlilokafor #sixers #makeyourmove #dosomething #weneedhelp #dannyainge

The third of 5 Possible Deals the Celtics Could Really Make, Kenneth Faried. Faried is the all heart, all hustle 6'8 PF for the Denver Nuggets. This season he has bounced back and forth between the starting unit and second unit. Out of college, Faried was honored for his work ethic, getting him selected in the first round despite being undersized and attending a no name college. I love watching Faried play. He gets better and better as the momentum and energy in the arena raises. Coming off the bench, Faried averages 9.3 PPG and 8.1 RPG. Denver is in a tough spot, there team should be better than it is by now and they will continue to wait. I am very interested in pairing one of the most electric players with the best fans in basketball. ------------------------------------------- TRADE COST To Boston: Kenneth Faried (PF) To Denver: Jonas Jerebko/Kelly Olynyk, James Young, 2019 Clippers First Round Pick, 2021 Celtics 1st Round Pick. -------------------------------------------- OVERALL IMPACT Kenneth Faried would ignite TD Garden. Guys like IT, Horford and Jae would love his high-energy play, he would play a lot of minutes and in my opinion add 14 PPG and 11 RPG in a green jersey. I have no doubt Faried could get us over the Raptors, the Cavs not so sure. ------------------------------------------ Probability of Occurrence: 45% Month of Occurrence: February #celtics #kennethfaried #deals #trades #nuggets #makeyourmove #weneedhelp #rebounding #dannyainge

The 2nd of 5 Possible Deals the Celtics Could Really Make, Nerlens Noel. Noel is a 6'11 PF-C combo that prefers the 5 and is currently a member of the Philadelphia 76ers. He is not a fan of Philadelphia and as I'm sure you all can assume, once 1st overall draft pick Ben Simmons returns and there isn't even a starting spot close to open, Noel and Jahlil Okafor will want out. However, Noel was Philly's leading scorer for 2 seasons. He missed the 2013 season with an injury he obtained after draft night, then Noel shocked the league by coming out in his rookie season and dominating the team in points, rebounds and blocks. Nerlens is coming off the bench for Philly, not as a sixth man, as barely a role player. Embiid, Saric and Ilyasova rarely sit, when they do Okafor gets called. Nerlens Noel averages 4.2 PPG and 2 RPG this season, however in 2 years his career averages are 10.3 PPG and 8 RPG. Noel is a Boston native, he loves the city and the interest is mutual. --------------------------------------------- TRADE COST To Boston: Nerlens Noel (C) To Sixers: 2019 Clippers 1st Round Pick. ------------------------------------------- OVERALL IMPACT Nerlens Noel is a talented player who still has much to learn. Being coached by Brad Stevens, the motivation of playing for his home team, and getting an opportunity at minutes alongside stars like Isaiah Thomas and Al Horford, Noel would shine in Boston. I believe his stats would shoot up to 16 and 10.5 per game and would be a key shot blocker, our starting center, and I think he would extend his contract with us before hitting FA. -------------------------------------- Probability of Occurrence: 65% Month of Occurrence: January #celtics #deals #trades #nerlensnoel #sixers #philly #makeyourmove #makesomethinghappen #weneedhelp #greenrunsdeep #dannyainge

The 1st of 5 Possible Deals the Celtics Could Really Make, Nikola Vucevic. Nikola Vucevic is a 7'0 center currently playing as a sixth man for the Orlando Magic, averaging 12.8 PPG and 10.5 RPG. Vucevic is among the best mid-range scorers in the league, he fits the necessities of a modern NBA center, the ability to shoot the ball and rebound the ball at high levels. As I said in a previous post, Nikola Vucevic would easily lead the C's in FG % and rebounds. As a Celtic, I could see Nik's stats jump right up to 18 and 10 a game, which he averaged in previous years. Benching Vucevic is not for strategical advantage in Orlando. It is simply because they value Bismack Biyombo more. The Magic are in a tough case, many believe they will have dealt both Nikola Vucevic and Elfrid Payton by the deadline. ------------------------------------------- TRADE COST To Boston:Nikola Vucevic (C) To Orlando: 2019 Clippers 1st round draft pick, 2019 Grizzlies 1st round draft pick, Jonas Jerebko/Jordan Mickey ------------------------------------------ OVERALL IMPACT If Nikola Vucevic were to become a Celtic, he would collect the most rebounds on the team and shoot at the highest percentage. He would bring in the high teens in points a game, would supply Isaiah Thomas and Marcus Smart with another outlet, and would overall get the team over Toronto in a 7 game series and give Boston a better shot against Cleveland. ------------------------------------------- Probability of Occurrence: 50% Probable Month of Acquisition: January #celtics #trades #nikolavucevic #shooter #modernbig #magic #weneedhelp #dannyainge #makeyourmove

I will be beginning a series that should last only a few days, called the Top 5 Deals the Celtics Could Really Make. A new post will appear every 15 likes, not including my own. Each post will include a stat bio of the identified player, his career overview, what it would cost to bring him in and his overall impact on the Celtics. Stay tuned and like it up ๐Ÿ€ #Celtics #deals #trades #potential #makeyourmove #alleyesonyou #likeitup #dannyainge #makesomethinghappen #celticsnation #greenrunsdeep

Many Boston sports journalists have opened an article questioning the next move for the Celtics. We get it, as Celtics fans, we are used to winning, we love our team and we want our team to succeed, so we harp on any good player that may be available. But here is a question Forbes Magazine asked: What is the most logical trade the Celtics could make that would help them in the long run? Their answer, and mine, was Nikola Vucevic. Vucevic is a 26 year old 7 footer of the Orlando Magic that has been the struggling squad's best player for 3 straight seasons. Vucevic is currently the team's 6th man, while he averages the most points per possessions, the shot-blocking sensation duo of Bismack Biyombo and Serge Ibaka is more appealing to the Magic. Vucevic could be a cheap addition for the Celtics. Him and Nerlens Noel may cost the same price, a future first rounder (not BKN), which then the choice between Noel or Vucevic is clear. Nik is a 7 footer that can seriously shoot the rock. If he was on the Celtics, he'd probably lead the team in FG% and rebounds. As a starter for the Magic, Nikola Vucevic averages 16.5 points and 8.9 rebounds. I'd love to get Vucevic on the C's and have him fill a Bill Laimbeer like role. Thoughts? #celtics #magic #nikolavucevic #wrongfullybenched #6thman #trades #weneedhelp #cheap #quickfixes #dannyainge #latechristmasgift

As the NBA rumor mill continues to heat up, we as Celtics fans know that we are linked to just about every NBA trade rumor and we know that once websites like NESN and HoopsHype and Bleacher Report begin to talk about them, there clearly is some traction there. So here we sit, 3rd in the conference, but much farther from Toronto and Cleveland than we expected. Isaiah Thomas is clearly begging for help in the scoring, and Avery Bradley/ Al Horford are begging for help in the rebounding. So you may ask, why don't we have DeMarcus Cousins yet? Why don't we have Andrew Bogut yet? Why don't we have Okafor or Noel? Well, this silence from Danny Ainge may be a good thing. The Indiana Pacers are 15-16 on the season. They are currently the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference, and if Chicago gets their shit together then Indy should be left out of the playoffs. Indiana holds the very valuable Paul George in their possession, however Myles Turner & Jeff Teague this season have been just as valuable, so what gives Indiana? Why are you doing so bad? Nobody really knows what happened to the Pacers, many expected them to be the 4th or 5th seed this year and get a first round win. If Indiana matches up against Cleveland, which they probably won't make the playoffs, they would NOT get that first round win. The Pacers have underachieved since obtaining the 1st seed a few years back, the silence from Danny Ainge has many rumor mills believing he has something up his sleeve. Something big. Rumors indicate that Danny Ainge may be trying to deal the Pacers Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson, Kelly Olynyk, the cash to pay for Amir and future draft picks in exchange for the lone Paul George. It is also believed that Danny Ainge is waiting to see if he can get a big deal like this done, then bring in Nerlens Noel for cheap. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT RUMORS ARE OFTEN FALSE, DO NOT ASSUME THIS IS DESTINED TO HAPPEN AND PLEASE DO NOT SPREAD THE WORD. However, can you imagine a team with IT, AB, PG13, Noel, Horford, Smart and hopefully a better Jaylen Brown ๐Ÿ˜ณโ˜˜๏ธ #Celtics #rumors #trades #weneedhelp #paulgeorge #pg13 #nerlensnoel #dannyainge #lettimedoitsthing #indianapacers #philadelphia76ers

#TakeNoLs๐Ÿ˜Ž The Celtics defeat the Grizzlies in overtime to improve to 16-12 on the season. Memphis is a physical team, however my concern grows for the team as Isaiah Thomas pretty much single handily collected the W. Apparently the Demarcus Cousins rumors are at their strongest level, and Isaiah Thomas is a strong supporter of bringing his old friend from Sacramento into the winningest sports city. At this point, Isaiah Thomas has done so much I would give him what he wants. He wants Cousins, get him Cousins. He thinks we only need Noel, get him Noel. He thinks all we need is Bogut, get him Bogut. Let's see how Ainge handles things as the new year nears. ------------------------------------------- BIG PERFORMERS Isaiah Thomas: 44 P, 6 A Al Horford: 17 P, 14 R Avery Bradley: 16 P #celtics #celticswin #grizzlies #isaiahthomas #w #weneedhelp #dannyainge #dostuff #demarcuscousins #bringbackthebig3 #new #bigthree #thomashorfordcousins #htc #nba #basketball #heartoverheight

Probably the most consistent trade rumor in the NBA the last 3 seasons, Demarcus Cousins to Celtics rumors are once again floating around the league, strong as ever. @mikekorzemba made a video on YouTube covering this topic, and I must say I have to agree with him. Cousins' Stats this season are that of NO ONE in recent NBA history. Then what is everyone's concern about Demarcus Cousins you ask? Two things. Firstly, his lack of any accomplishment in 7 NBA seasons (0 playoff appearances or winning seasons) and of course his attitude. These are both linked to the same issue: the treacherous Kings and idiotic Divac & Co. Here are some "great" moves by the Kings' front office since drafting Cousins: Drafting Willie Cauley-Stein over Devin Booker/Justise Winslow. Drafting Nik Stauskas over Zach LaVine. Drafting Ben McLemore over CJ McCollum, drafting Thomas Robinson over Damian Lillard, Bismack Biyombo over Klay Thompson, and my favorite, Isaiah Thomas for Darren Collison. Losing hurts, Garnett had a bit of a hot head when the Wolves started losing, but being that competitive pays dividends on a good team, as you also saw with Garnett. My big concern with the C's is that they think they are preserving farther in the future than they are. We are one player away from something big, we don't even need 2 more Brooklyn picks, we don't need the Clippers or Grizzlies pick, we only need ONE MORE GUY. Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, Marcus Smart aren't guaranteed to stay. Giving them a championship team is a pretty good reason. We NEED to trade one of these picks for Cousins, otherwise we will remain mediocre. Danny Ainge needs to make this move not next year, not on draft night, not at the deadline, but NOW. #celtics #kings #awfulfrontoffice #vladedivacisanidiot #jackass #demarcuscousins #dannyainge #oneplayeraway #weneedhelp #trades #isaiahthomas #darrencollison #williecauleystein #devinbooker #justisewinslow #nikstauskas #zachlavine #thomasrobinson #damianlillard #awfuldrafting #idiots #bismackbiyombo #klaythompson #whatareyoudoing

76ers' center Nerlens Noel commented on the team's roster, and he was NOT thrilled. The Sixers have 3 centers that are all capable of starting, Embiid, Okafor and Noel. Noel was the team's leader 2 seasons ago and he is more than disappointed with the large reducing of his minutes. Nerlens Noel's comments almost sets him as a lock to be traded, he is a Boston native and a young 6'11 talent that Ainge has looked at in the past. Noel is a well-respected young talent, who once announced his interest in the Celtics, this is by no means a red light, he knows that teams such as Boston, Toronto, Portland, etc. have interest in him and he is frustrated with the knowledge that there are good teams with interest in his services and starting spots available for him and instead he sits on the worst team in the NBA's bench due to the idiocy of drafting 3 centers in a row with top 10 picks? My only questions are these: Do you want Nerlens Noel? If so, what would you give up for him? And the biggest question, what on earth was Philly's horrid front office thinking in these drafts? #celtics #nerlensnoel #gethimout #savehim #76ers #trash #lastplace #ouch #trades #dannyainge #weneedhelp #doyourmagic

Today is Dec. 17, the trade season has officially been opened for two days and moves should start soon for many teams! I took it upon myself to take the 14 active players on our roster (Gerald Green is injured and not trade able) and decide between 3 categories: Must Keep, Must Trade and Trade Able. Must keep meaning do not trade. Must trade meaning do not let these guys last on our roster come the deadline, Trade able meaning I'd be happy to keep but if a better offer comes they're completely open. Marcus Smart is in yellow because he is right on the line for me of must keep and if a good trade comes along he's out. Here's a summary of what we should do with our roster ๐Ÿ‘‡ ------------------------------------------ Thomas: DO NOT TRADE Horford: DO NOT TRADE Bradley: Don't trade Brown: Don't trade Rozier: Don't trade Johnson: TRADE NOW Young: TRADE NOW Jackson: Trade, he's too good for his current role and it's a waste Zeller: Trade sooner or later Crowder: Pair him with a pick and get something good Smart: Only trade if a great offer Olynyk: Only trade for an improvement at center/PF Jerebko: Only trade for an improvement at center/PF Mickey: Trade for another prospect or improvement Green: cannot trade, injured #Celtics #letsgetthispartystarted #trades #tradeseason #opened #roster #isaiahthomas #alhorford #averybradley #jaylenbrown #terryrozier #marcussmart #jaecrowder #kellyolynyk #jonasjerebko #jordanmickey #amirjohnson #tylerzeller #demetriusjackson #jamesyoung #geraldgreen #dannyainge #weneedhelp #makeyourmove #shootyourshot

REPORT: Basketball Insider says Demarcus Cousins, Ben McLemore are available, Zach Lowe reports Celtics will stay away. Danny Ainge has been on the hunt for a blockbuster deal to change the franchise. Acquiring Demarcus Cousins & McLemore would do just that. The price is supposedly around a deal involving Jae Crowder, Brooklyn's pick and Amir Johnson. This is among the most helpful trades the Celtics have a chance to make in history, so why won't Ainge take action? Well, Zach Lowe reports "Stevens is afraid, wouldn't touch Cousins with a 10 foot pole" ๐Ÿ˜‘. I do not know if this is true. But if it is, Brad needs to understand how much this would help our team, players have attitudes, and when those guys are among the best, you take it upon yourself to change their attitude or deal with it. If this trade is available WE NEED IT ๐Ÿ˜ฉ #celtics #kings #demarcuscousins #benmclemore #boogietoboston #dannyainge #bradstevens #trades #cmonbrad

Lol where do I start. Ok so the Celtics invite the Warriors to the Garden and get SMACKED 104-88. The score did not indicate how bad of a performance this was, down by near 30 the entire 2nd half until Golden State sat their starters. A poor game for both Thomas & Curry, but the Warriors had a simple game plan: Boston has two of the worst big men I have ever seen, let's set a pick and use Klay or Durant off the switch. And it worked. 28 for Klay Thompson, 23 for Kevin Durant. Al Horford is beginning to look like a real female part, taking 3 times the regular time period to return from a concussion. Jae Crowder got us fucked up. But everything aside, 3 players cost us tonight's game: KELLY OLYNYK, AMIR JOHNSON AND JONAS JEREBKO. Holy shit do our bigs suck. Olynyk finishes with 0, Johnson 6 and Jerebko 2 in three of THE WORST individual performances, particularly on defense, I have seen in my NBA fan career. Sorry Celtics fans, but it's clear that until those last two listed starters say Horford & Noel, Horford & Cousins, Horford & Okafor, Horford & Lopez, anything but Johnson or Olynyk, we can't improve. Until Johnson and Olynyk and possibly Jerebko are off this team, forget anything about a successful season. Brad sat both players quite a bit, usually after one of 1 million bad plays, hopefully both players will be traded in the coming days #celtics #weneedhelp #warriors #kellyopathetic #amirjohnsonisawful #trades #dannyainge #howcanyouwatchthat #dosomethingainge

Kings' center Demarcus Cousins was livid last night in a game that he did everything he could to win and still lost. The San Antonio Spurs, headlined by the dreamy forward combo of Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge, are obviously one of the most elite teams in the NBA and Kings fans are probably happy their team was able to compete with them, losing 110-105. However, the individual dominance by Demarcus Cousins was UNREAL. Cousins posted 26 points, 17 rebounds and 6 assists in 36 minutes of play, there was literally nothing else he could've done to win unless he shut down Aldridge, pretty much impossible. Cousins was supplied with a whopping 11 points from "co-star" Rudy Gay and 15 from Matt Barnes ๐Ÿ˜Things are getting BAD in Sacramento, and soon, Boogie might just walk off the court mid game. Certain analysts say they don't want Cousins because of his attitude, but that is 99% perspective. That perspective changes when he goes from a two man team to a young and hungry franchise that also happens to be in the greatest sports city ever, that is a 2nd star away from helping Isaiah Thomas & his red-hot supporting cast of Bradley & Horford compete for a championship. An anonymous western conference GM said Cousins will be traded for picks in December. Do you think Danny Ainge will pull the trigger? #celtics #trades #kings #demarcuscousins #dannyainge #isaiahthomas

@truetobeantown

Ok so I'm sure another source informed you that the trade between the Celtics & Warriors involving Klay Thompson & Avery Bradley was FALSE. Danny Ainge talked on Avery Bradley and some good news is Danny is NOT planning on trade Bradley unless it's something he can't refuse. "neither team will try to move either of those guys" says Danny when covering the speculation of Bradley-Thompson trades. However the Celtics, as you know, are in need of one more piece on this team, whether it's big or small, but it's good to know Avery Bradley won't be involved in anything. C's have Stephen Curry & Kevin Durant at home tomorrow. If possible, I suggest all Boston fans to try and tune in for that game, it is guaranteed to be a playoff like home game, it should be a good game and it will be a test of our defense. #celtics #warriors #averybradley #dannyainge

A somewhat disheartening update on Brad Stevens: If you've seen some of the newest news and rumors about Demarcus Cousins of Sacramento, you will hear that the Celtics are very capable of and prepared to acquire the center from the struggling Kings. However, updates say the Celtics are shying away from Demarcus Cousins. This can be pointed to head coach, Brad Stevens, who is believed to be "afraid of Cousins". That's right, Brad Stevens as the coach is afraid he will be overridden by the ego filled center. However, as a coach, you have great power over the players and it's your job to enforce that power. You decide the minutes, you make the subs, you assign the captains, you draw the plays. Demarcus Cousins attitude is 90% fueled by being part of one of the worst times of one of the worst franchises in sports history, being in the most-winning city automatically gives an edge. I also find it disrespectful that Brad doesn't think team captains Isaiah Thomas & Avery Bradley won't hold Cousins in check, they have a big role on this team, and although Cousins may be considered better, his attitude gets him less power and he knows that. Brad needs to be a man and you know what, if Demarcus acts up, you bench him. If he can't control himself, you then talk to Danny Ainge. This team is in need of a star big man, and the fans need to know this experiment at least happened even if it fails. However, rumors say there is a possibility the Celtics trade Smart and a pick to the Kings for Cousins, then flip Cousins & Crowder for Anthony Davis ๐Ÿ‘€ #celtics #bradstevens #demarcuscousins #trades #dannyainge #weneedtheasshole

@truetobeantown

Update: Western Conference GM (name hidden) believes Sacramento has to move Cousins in December, calls Kings' front office idiotic. I updated you early that Shaquille O'Neal, a majority owner of the Kings announced the Kings are going to look in a different direction than the hot-headed star. This GM added to this saying "It won't happen unless the Kings cave a little." This anonymous GM states that Sacramento believes Cousins is too valuable, "No one is gonna give up too much for someone that might ruin your team chemistry" he says "If they don't see that, then I don't think anything changes". Once again, the western conference is hot, and once again, Sacramento is not part of that. Keep your eye on Demarcus Cousins after Thanksgiving, especially with the shitty big man play we've had. #celtics #dannyainge #trades #weneedhelp #demarcuscousins

Celtics take another major L in New Orleans. Game shouldn't have been as close as it was, we can always count on good production from the guard trio, TBS (Thomas, Bradley, Smart) but everybody else is most likely gonna be trash. We needed Al Horford tonight. We need both Al and Jae on Friday. This team is not in good shape, the bigs, starters and bench, are trash. Olynyk was the leading rebounder, who lost the game by fouling Tim Frazier with 2.5 seconds left. Anthony Davis bullied the C's, everyone panicked when he got the ball. This team needs a scorer to help Isaiah, Bradley & Smart are okay, but until we have a true star duo, we will be nothing compared to Cleveland, Toronto and Atlanta. Scoring and big man help ๐Ÿค”? Kill two birds with one stone ๐Ÿค”? Can you spell,... Demarcus Cousins.

According to 2 very reliable sources, Shaquille O'Neal of NBA TV, Kings majority owner, and Brian Scalabrine of CSNNE, Celtics insider, have updates on Klay Thompson & DeMarcus Cousins. I have more in depth posts about each of these trades if you'd like to check them out ๐Ÿ‘‰. From CSNNE insider, Brian Scalabrine "I heard that Klay Thompson will be available this weekend. And I heard it involves a team wearing green." From Shaquille O'Neal, NBA TV Analyst, NBA Hall of Famer, Sacramento Kings partial majority owner: "the franchise is probably getting ready to part with him." Scal & Shaq just made our weekend a little bit better. Don't ruin your weekend spending it by the TV or radio trying to listen in, but if you have the Bleacher Report or Sports Center app, I'd make sure my notifications were on by Thursday night. Although Thompson can very well still be moved as the Timberwolves denied trading Kevin Garnett in 2007, it is more likely for the Celtics to acquire Demarcus Cousins out of these two rather than Klay Thompson #celtics #klaytoboston #boogietoboston #dannyainge #doyourmagic

Celtics fans I suggest you mark December 15th on your calendars. Firstly, that's 10 days from Christmas, or if you prefer, 9 days from Hanukkah, but also December 15th marks the official day that NBA players acquired in the offseason from any and all teams, can be traded, or have salaries adjusted. The most "reliable source" of them all, Bleacher Report claims that this will be the day trade frenzies truly heat up, and trades will probably be made the night of the 15th, or the coming days. Tomorrow is November 14th, meaning we are just about one month and one day from when things that are already interesting, REALLY get interesting ๐Ÿ˜ˆ #celtics #trades #dannyainge #nerlensnoel #demarcuscousins #williecauleystein #omricasspi #jahlilokafor #kennethfaried #brooklopez #pleasedosomething #weneedhelpdanny

UPDATE: "Reliable Sources" say a lot of players have been linked to the Celtics, but this team is in good enough shape for Danny Ainge to "not swing for the fences, instead go for a cool yet helpful single". What this means, is that with Isaiah Thomas, Al Horford, Avery Bradley, Jae CROWDER, Marcus Smart & Jaylen Brown, Danny Ainge won't risk blowing up an already very good squad just to acquire a superstar. However, it's good news that C Nerlens Noel is considered to be "a realistic and strong trade". Boston has its guard tandem, we have our big name free agent in the low post, we have a momentum and aggression junky (Jaesus), we have our big 6th man, and we have our future guy to watch develop. But what we need is a paint presence. I've said it a million times: Nerlens Noel is a Boston Native. Nerlens Noel lost his spot in the rotation. Philadelphia is doing better with Embiid, Saric and Ilyasova and won't risk ruining that. So Noel, should & will be traded. Noel will instantly improve under Brad Stevens. The team's rebounding will instantly improve with Noel, and Noel will turn to a star by combining some of the great traits he has with Stevens' coaching and playing alongside IT, Horford and AB. Boston & Toronto are the 2 almost guaranteed destinations to acquire Noel. Let's get him and make him our own, and fill the one gap in our starters. #celtics #sixers #trades #nerlensnoel #dannyainge #gethimout

@truetobeantown

Would you do either of these trades with the Sacramento Kings? Looking at our current rotation, our scoring is under control, our defense looks like it's improving, we're soon getting back some key players dealing with injury, BUT our defensive rebounding is atrocious, as last night in a blow out against the Knicks we allowed 15 offensive rebounds. 5 offensive rebounds is something to be looked at. NEVERMIND FIFTEEN. The Sacramento Kings are commonly linked with the Celtics, as the Kings are a poor team that looks decent on paper, but is yet to avoid underachievement, it makes sense for the Kings to make roster moves, preferably involving draft picks. Which of these deals would you do, if any ๐Ÿ‘‡? Option 1: Kings Receive: PF Jonas Jerebko & 2018 Boston Celtics 1st Round Pick (estimated between 23rd and 30th overall pick) Celtics Receive: C Willie Cauley-Stein & SF Caron Butler. Option 2: Kings Receive: PF Amir Johnson, 2017 Right-to-swap picks with Brooklyn Nets, 2018 Brooklyn Nets 1st Round Pick, Celtics Receive: C Demarcus Cousins. Should the Celtics do either of these trades? Should the Kings do either of these trades? Which one would you do? #celtics #trades #kings #dannyainge #doyourmagic #williecauleystein #demarcuscousins #jerebko #amirjohnson #draft

@truetobeantown

BREAKING: Reports indicate that Sacramento Kings' GM, Vlade Divac, openly announces that Willie Cauley-Stein, is officially available and he is taking calls for the 2nd year center NOW. Here's one thing to remember about pro sports: When a staff member announces that a player is available for trade, there is a 75% chance that player is in fact traded, because they believe they are unwanted and will refuse to play or refuse to play with effort. So, Divac has now made it that Willie Cauley-Stein HAS to be traded. Cauley-Stein was the starting center who paired with 1st overall pick and reigning rookie of the year Karl-Anthony Towns in Kentucky's front court. Their team went 38-1 (๐Ÿ˜ณ), losing to Wisconsin in the final four. EIGHT PLAYERS from that ONE roster have made it to the NBA. Experience with a winning team can be valuable in today's league. Willie's play style reminds me of a DeAndre Jordan. Dunks and lobs on offense, and a talented rebounder and shot blocker. He shined under Calipari with a young and undeveloped KAT, why can't he shine under Brad Stevens with an All-Star Al Horford? What would you offer for the Kentucky alumni? #celtics #kings #trades #dannyainge #doyourmagic #williecauleystein #kentucky
