    I got NY area teams (Biggie), Pelicans and Hawks (BirdsX2), Wizards, Suns, Raptors, 76ers.

    FreeBird going Green as Hawks players to Celtics makes sense.

    In any case, that's a decent amount of interest, even if lukewarm.

    It doesn't matter whether he wants to be here, or how helpful he might be to the team for a second round super surprise (remember, they're not even in the playoffs at this point, so they're playing the Warriors, Spurs or Thunder in 1st round IF they make it) run.

    DM is valuing what he can get (even if little) vs. cap space.

    I would trade him for the Nets pick that the Celtics own and expiring contracts if that were possible... as then you get cap space AND a great asset.

    Wouldn't shock me if Morey has reached out to Miami, but...

    I don't trust Frank Isola's sauces.

    Fugazi. If his boss truly knew, he wouldn't be on here.

    Responding to my own post, lol.

    But you could do this:

    Dwight, TJones, any filler they want of (Dekker, McDaniels and even DMo - dude is always injured and as a RFA might be not a Rocket next year anyway)

    for

    David Lee, Amir Johnson (he has cooled off considerably... since the C's started winning a lot, he's gotten worse, so they don't really need him) and the Nets pick

    That's fair. The Nets pick is a top 3/4 pick right now. It's the only real asset the Celtics trade. They don't make their team worse for a potential surprise run this year (increasingly possible) and Dwight would probably love to resign in Boston.

    I love it when Cod posts even though I am terrible at riddles. It sounds like we will end up with keef and a random role player from Portland with a second rounder?

    Wishing you a healthy 2016 Cod

    Whiteside may be talented but man is he a headcase. Those kinds of guys never fit well on a team with chemistry problems and egos.

    We are retooling now. He brings a certain toughness we don't have.
