Default Celtics-Sixers draft day trade

Celtics trade the Brooklyn pick (if its 1 or 2) to Philly, who drafts Fultz or Ball

Celtics get Okafor or Noel plus Philly's pick, and draft Jackson or Issac.

Its a pg heavy draft and the C's dont need another one.

Philly - Embiid, Simmons, Fultz.

Everyone wins.

Philly will be getting Sacramento's pick. Rudy Gay is out for the season, so they're likely to decline massively. I doubt Philly will be trading up unless it gets rid of Okafor. The Celtics definitely don't need Okafor.

Celtics should absolutely keep their draft pick in that case.

Couple things here.

Noel is an RFA so he won't be getting traded on draft night.

Secondly, if the C's landed the top pick they could do a hell of a lot better than Okafor and another pick. As a Sixer fan yeah I'd do this in a heartbeat but I'm positive that Ainge would never do that.

I dunno if it's worth entering an arms race with the warriors who most people agree are probably the most stacked team in history AND a team lead by a generational all-time great with ever improving pieces beside him.

I'm a huge fan of his but I just don't see a team built round Isaiah competing with these two teams.

They should only give away what they have for a generational talent, Davis perhaps, and there's no reason they need to do it quickly and no one that good is available. Or they can just run their own version of the process without having to tank, put fultz with jaylen brown and their likely top 3 pick in 2018 and see where that leads.

celtics getting okafor/noel and some mid lottery forward (they already have a lottery forward and his instant impact has been minimal) does not look good compared to the sixers putting embiid alongside simmons and fultz/ball.

Jokes on you, teams usually get better once Gay gets traded/hurt.

No way do the Celtics trade the #1 pick

They will most likely take Josh Jackson

This is just an idea. I'm more than happy to keep the pick.

Just trade Smart for Noel, and sign Hayward in the off season.

1. sack ainge.
2. sign hinkie

3. trade thomas, crowder and bradley while they are still on cheap contracts and have good value for more pics.

4. keep horford for his veteran impact (lets be honest, nobody wants that mammoth contract).

5. trust the process.
6. draft one embiid, one giannis and one [insert generational guard here].
8. ten-peat.


9. break-up the nba, because nobody wants to watch it anymore.
10. retire basketball as a sport.
11. rename insidehoops into insidehockey

12. repeat the whole thing
