    Oh, I am very much aware that the team is overall worse with Westbrook - but they long ago gave the keys to Harden - and they are going to bend over backwards for him until he flames out.

    I would say Bertans competes hard. He doesn’t fade away like Ryno.

    I don’t get the Bryant love...he’s not good.

    I love his game but Bertans is a rental 100%. There is no chance we would match his market value. He's going to $20 Million a season. He's great on a bad team. This would be an awful trade. Only way i'm dealing with The Wizards is if I get Rui Hachimura.

    Teams with the most cap space this summer before extensions.

    ATL - 26M
    NYM - 20M
    CHI - 19M
    IND - 18M

    Yeah, just to note though, all bad teams, Dallas without Doncic, Miami without Butler, Pacers without Turner, and against the Jazz well, we were without Harden and Westbrook too.

    Bertans is that kind of player, stretch 4 with poor athlethicism, lenght, not really quick with his feet...i mean, he's not a good defender. The Spurs traded him cause they had a deal with Marcus Morris who is a better defender. I assume he wouldn't start here anyway, coming off the bench his defense wouldn't hurt us as much.

    Ehh...Seems like they're focused on offensive chemistry here which I'd argue that offensively Paul and Capela never quite gelled either.

    The other aspect of that CP3, JH, and Capela record was that we had a much better defensive team with personnel that fit the switch everything scheme well in 2017-18. Even last year the record with them, while still good, was beginning to show some cracks because defensively we weren't as good. The WB, JH, and CC lineup isn't as successful because WB isn't as good as a defender as CP3. Also, collectively we do not have great team defenders and subpar 1 on 1 defenders.

    Windhorst: If Clint Capela is truly available, there's a trade package there the Celtics can put together. If they got their hands on Clint Capela, he would dramatically change their situation against big teams. I'd like that for them. They'd have to do without trading their big five so Daniel Theis probably being in the deal, Vincent Poirier, Romeo Langford maybe and one of their first. (Not the Memphis pick) Houston is trying to acquire a wing. I gotta believe Boston is in the mix there.


    Gross.

    Agree. What happens when he doesn't want/need to play small?
    Who is going to guard AD, for example? (but then, does MDA really worry about 'guarding'?)

    Don't disagree, but hope everyone realizes 'replacement for Capella' will definitely be a lesser player. You don't trade and get a better replacement, plus another good player. ie, could they get someone's reserve center? Sure. And lots of 'reserve' centers in the league really should be back of bench players.

    It's all just speculation, either way, brother. Pretty much the point of fans discussing things on message boards. Don't tell me you don't think trade value has never been a consideration for dictating playing time, especially when we're talking about Morey.

    Yeah, that package sucks. let Ainge ride the midgets against Embiid, Sabonis and Giannis.

    I bet he had to read Poirier on "his" notes cause he didn't even know he exists.

    No it has not. If the coach thinks a player is good, he is going to play. The coach isn't just going to hold him back at the detriment of the team. This should be common sense. I understand this is a message forum, but silly speculation deserves to be called out.
