In response to R9R's comment:
As for the Milwakee possibility, I can't think of anything that the Celtics would package that would be appealing to them.
In my opinion, I think Philly has a better offer if Houston is after Ilyasova:
Its hard to tell Philly's outlook on Turner, but if they think they'll lose him in free agency and he's scoring too much for them to tank, this trade could make a lot of sense
Why would a rebuilding Philly want Asik ... they want picks or young players with low salaries and high potential.
Regarding the Bucks ... They don't want to give up Ilyasova but could be intrigued with swapping Sanders for Asik cause Asik is more mature and ready to compete in playoffs which Milwaukee is desperate to do. So if Houston will provide a replacement for Ilyasova like T Jones (which isn't gonna happen) then the Bucks might agree. Houston needs another team with a suitable PF ... Young and Bass fit the bill but if you are the Bucks thinking playoffs with Asik do you want Young or Bass?
That's why Boston fits the Buck trade scenario ... and because Sanders extension kicks in next year it's not a case of swapping $3MM players and a pick to the Bucks but matching salaries that work. Bass to Bucks and Brooks to Rockets with Bucks giving up Ilya & Neal for Asik works. Maybe you give a lower level pick to Rockets as a finders fee ... Haha!
so in this deal the Celtics end up with Saunders from Mil?
Saunders for Bass, essentially?
