    I think you're making it too difficult here larsv, pretty sure the Sixers would gladly take back Gordon instead of a mediocre pick, Eric would fit just perfectly there, probably the best replacement to Butler they can realistically get, i don't think they could do better than that in free agency, Middleton is not walking through that door...

    I don’t think you’ll even need a third team in a trade for Butler. They’re about to lose JJ and Butler without cap space to replace those two at the 2. Getting Gordon back to be their starting SG is not bad.

    The bigger issues with Butler are the same things they've always been; 1) him wanting to come here and 2)him opting in to his last year.

    I think if you explain its just a logistics issue and you will give him his max deal after, he would do it.

    He’s the type of player we need on this team. I don’t think Harden has ever said “a dude that’s tough and wants his team battle ready? No thanks I’m good”

    How about the 14th pick? ;)

    Thinking about this, could actually see a trade not being agreed because Morey asks for the 14th and Ainge is willing to offer the 22nd lol, maybe they would ultimately agree to something like 20th and a 2nd rounder...

    Believe it when I see it. This is a guy who's been pissy for 3 years over getting his max deal.

    Maybe the Trump rule doesn't apply here: just say it, people will believe it.

    So you’re taking his tweet but also adding your own random trade as if he reported it?

    The bigger problem is 80M. I’ll take 4yrs 68M.

    Not been in this thread. Why are people slobbering all over Al Horford? He’s a nice player at this point. Not a huge improvement. Other than he can space the floor while still playing the 5.

    Capela basically gave us nothing against GS.

    How would AH not be a huge improvement over nothing?

    Because we just saw the value of spacing the floor. See Marc & Serge

    Im all about playoffs. But also recognize you got to get there, get good seeding, etc. Plus Horford didn’t play against GSW in playoffs ever. Plus GSW won’t be the GSW next year.
