    Re: Celtics talking to cavs about #1

    BOSTON — The Boston Celtics continue to look at all options leading up to the NBA draft which includes landing the No. 1 overall pick.

    A league source has told CSNNE.com that the Celtics have engaged the Cleveland Cavaliers about acquiring the No. 1 overall pick in Thursday's NBA draft.

    While no deal is imminent, Boston's pursuit of the top overall pick speaks to their desire to indeed create "fireworks" in a draft that took a step back in terms of luster at the top following the navicular bone fracture to Joel Embiid's right foot.

    If the Celtics were able to secure the top overall pick, they are expected to choose between Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker, arguably the top two players in this draft although multiple sources indicate Boston would lean more towards Wiggins than Parker.

    Cleveland has been listening to offers for the No. 1 overall pick for weeks, but most anticipated the Cavaliers keeping it until the news broke of Embiid's foot injury which will keep him sidelined for at least four months.

    The Cavaliers have not come out publicly to say that they will not draft Embiid, but all indications are that Cleveland will in fact take a pass on the 7-foot big man.

    Boston, currently the holder of the No. 6 and No. 17 picks, is interested in Embiid and would consider moving up to acquire him if they were to see his most recent medical reports and the Celtics' doctors believe that, based on that additional information, he's worth the risk.

    But if the Celtics were to acquire the draft's top pick, it's unlikely they would use it to select Embiid who prior to the injury was seen by most as the most likely first player chosen.

    More BS from Sherrod Blakely, I think.  He is so full of it lately, just throw all kinds of things out to see if anything sticks.

    Belichick should B--- slap Ainge if he pays the price to move up like that.  Danny won't, no one but Pitino or Rex would.

    What would they even offer for it that the Cavs would be interested in?  The Jazz reportedly are offering #5, Favors, and Alec Burks. Celtics can't touch that offer unless Rondo is involved and they already have Irving who is better.  

    It's probably just Danny doing his due diligence.  

    Blakely is a monumental hack.  His opinions and "ideas" change with whichever way the rumor mill wind blows.  He is a regurgitation machine.

    Is there any possible way to keep Rondo, sign Love and land Wiggins #1??

     

    Is that just asking too much?

    If Celtics can acquire more lottery picks then it's really possible the Celts would end up with the #1 pick.

    Lakers want to dump Nash's contract.

    Kings want Rondo.

    Trade 1

    Using the 10m TPE, Celtics trade #17 pick for the Lakers' #7 and Nash.

    Trade 2

    Rondo to the Kings for the #8 pick.

    Celts will now have the #6, #7, and #8 pick of the 2014 Draft.

    HAHAHA

    [/QUOTE]

    Even if the price is the Lakers get Lebron and Melo?

    Lebron or Melo.

    Lakers can't get both Melo and Lebron.

    [/QUOTE]

    Plenty of talking heads on ESPN are saying that both are possible the last few days.  They say all Lakers have to do is to get rid of Nash contract.  Unlikely, I know, but they are saying it on air.

    Yes, it can be done, but if the Lakers do that, they won't have the adequate supporting cast.


    Lakers going to sign 10 vet's minimum guys?


     


    Even Pau Gasol will not be able to re-sign with the Lakers if Melo, Lebron, and Kobe are on the Lakers.

    Critically thinking it through is not part of being a commentator on ESPN.

    I think it's in their contracts that the Lakers must be brought up when talking about any star that could be available.

    Hopefully next year the Lakers will consist of Kobe, Randle, and a bunch of nobodys.  Kobe berates Randle so bad that he has a mental breakdown and quits the game of basketball.
