    FB - to answer your question (these reply things get too long) - without a third team involved, I think Green, Bogans, Young and Sully (3 picks max) is fair for Love.

    If they want us to take Martin, we throw in Anthony and Thornton, and take back Young.

    I would use Bass instead of Bogans - and, of course, Wallace.

    But 3 first round picks should be the key.  Rookie contracts are four years now.

    Since they just took (F me) LaVine, they might not want Young, though.............

    Rehash - Bass, Green, Fav, Bogans, Young and 3 #1's for Love and Martin.

    Good stuff. Getting close to what the Wolves would have to consider is a good offer.

    Smart over Vonleh hurt us b/c even if Danny valued Smart more, Vonleh had more value to a team like the Wolves. They already have a PG with shooting issues in Rubio.

    I think Danny needs to move Smart and Anthony's expiring contract for a young player Minny really desires. Maybe someone still on his rookie deal, but nearing the end of it. This would have to wait until 30 days after Smart signed his contract.

    If we are going to take on Martin's contract 3/21, they need to take Wallace at 2/20. If we take Martin they definitely get Young, who is the young shooter they see replacing him and pairing so well with the shooting challenged Rubio.

    Wallace, Bass, Sully, Young, Zeller (over Olynyk) and a future pick for Love and Martin.

    Then in a separate deal Smart, Anthony (6 million or so) and a future pick are traded for a young player in his prime the Wolves want. Not Klay Thompson obviously. But someone who can be traded and sent back for a contract like Barea, Budinger or Brewer in the 5 million range. 

    THAT type of deal going down in the middle of August MIGHT entice the Wolves.

    Before then Danny can still try and move Bogans and Anthony or Bogans and Bass in a move with maybe a pick tossed in for a player the Wolves would want. 

    We know Love will have to join a team with Rondo, Bradley, Green and one of Olynyk/Zeller at center to feel he is instantly competitive and playoff bound. All Danny should ask him to do is pick up his option year.

    I really wanted Vonleh, too.  I am very very curious to know the "issues" he has, and why we didn't take him.  We wouldn't need, necessarily, Zeller if we had Vonleh, so one of them could go.

    Before we go dealing Young, though, let's not forget MN just took LaVine at 13.  I think if they wanted Young, they could have had him at 13.  They would be redundant on that team.

    Think Monroe would want to go to MN.....LOL?

     



    Vonleh measured 6'8". That was the drawback. 



    More of this lopsided trade jazz? Why would Minny do that trade? Explain that to me because I cannot see why they do this trade. They take our junk and unproven players for someone many here think gets us deep into the playoffs and makes Minny complete another trade with Boston that could make them look as bad as when they dealt KG to us. What magic potion makes them this stupid?

    Great trade.  We got something for nothing.  Now, hopefully, Cleveland can sign LeBron and Trade for Love, so we can put the Kevin Love nightmare behind us!

    In response to rkarp's comment:

    My biggest takeaway from the trade is that Danny has managed to assemble a team that talent wise is an 18-20 win team in a loaded draft next year...and he also rcvd another first in the process. Very astute, great moves by DA...

    please, someone tell Stevens to not coach this team to 24 wins next year...now that we have all these choices, we need talent. Look at the frosh bigs next year in college. Surely a couple of them will come out and will be franchise players...

    2017 is looking very good here in Boston. A couple of years of heartburn, and then hopefully a yearly, deep playoff team for the next 5-7 years...

    another plus...at least tickets will be plentiful and cheap next year if anyone wants to go to a game?




    [object HTMLDivElement]

     

    I think they will win a lot more than 18-20 games.



    They better not win 26 and blow the draft choice again! 




    [object HTMLDivElement]

     

    Get Love, make the playoffs.

    Next year, shed the contracts of Bass, Anthony and Green, and get another scorer (like Martin, in the Love trade)

    After next year, lose Wallace...........draft well, and fill in the gaps.  We should be good to go.


    I hope we can trade for a real good player, our chances of drafting a alpha dog is very very low low.

    Re: Celts Get T.Zeller and Marcus Thornton

    Great great trade! Thortons is a legit fairly efficient scorer and an expiring 8.9 m contract, Zeller 15.34 per @ 1.7m and an extra pick, we must of had some coupons. This deal is a total win win if trade or play them

     If Da wants Love I can't see any team being willing to offer a deal like Bass,Bogans,Thorton,Anthony(KOor Sully) and 3 picks for Love and Dieng.

    If the volume of players and picks used for 1 player ( 30 minutes a game) make a list of the remaining roster and ask yourself  ... Why would he want to be there.... 

    Build a nucleus of players thru the draft and then figure out what's or who is needed ..

    I'm not saying I do or don't want Love I am totally ambivalent about Love, he's a stat line All Star, but he has never translated that into success at the college or pro but he has won Olympic Gold but with that cast I could've claimed that.

    I'll say this, Melo resigning , Haywood and Parsons getting 15+ offers , LeBron maybe going back home (I hope he does.), in the words of Tom Petty "the future is wide open".

    First of all we probably want the LeBron deal to fall through, if it does than the Cavs are a mid tier playoff team at best and the #1 pick we just received will be better.

    Secondly can we stop pretending like Love is a bad player because he didn't win a ring in Minnesota?  This is such a heaping pile of sht, it smells to high heaven.  How many rings did LeBron win in Cleveland with a substantially better cast that Love had in Minny.  The best player Love played with was who; Ricky Rubio?

    I swear only on this board is "great" not even good enough.  If he was asked to play on the Dream Team by coach K and continues to put up such obscene numbers than he is as good as advertised.  

    You can't fake 26 points, 13 boards,  4 assists, 1 block and one steal a game.  You just can't do it.  

    And there isn't some unquantifiable characteristic that he is lacking, it's a joke.  

    I'm not trying to pile on here teejay because maybe I misunderstood your position but if not you are far from alone.  Love is the real deal, we're desperate for a talent like him, don't get it twisted.

    You think he's done growing?  He's only 18 going on 19 in about 6 weeks. Plenty of time left to add a few more inches. 

    Talk of character issues abounds mostly about him dissing IU and Coach Crean. If he did speak negatively about a former coach or how he was or wasn't utilized pointing the finger at the coaching staff for his shortcomings then that makes sense. It was also said that he sat out games and even skipped team workouts if fatigued. You can read more here.

    I'm not Danny Ainge. Perhaps Danny knew the Cs had Sully, Oly, Bass and a deal in the works for Zeller and wanted to cover his bases if Rondo leaves?? I would not have been upset with them drafting Vonleh either.

    So much for the build through the draft theory. No team has the roster for that many draft picks. A trade has to happen at this point or you have serious wasted value here.

     

     



    On the contrary, it supports the building through the draft theory.

     

     

    Rondo, Bass, Joel Anthony, and Marcus Thornton all have expiring contracts.

     

    And Wallace and Jeff Green will have expiring contracts in 2016.

     

     

     

    It's not like the Celts will not lose any players for the next 2 years.



    There was a nice piece on CSNNE that was illustrating my point. Ainge is acquiring assets. You can only have 12 players active so how are you going to develop 9 first round draft picks while developing Smart, Oly, Sullinger, Young, and Zeller while having Bradley around with a large contract for the next 4 years?

    You can only have 12 active players, but you can keep 15 players.


    Players are going to get injured in the course of an 82-game season.


    That's why Babb made the team when Bayless got hurt.


     


    If not traded or let go this season, Celts will not have Thornton, Bass, Anthony, and maybe Rondo next season.


    Fav also doesn't have a guaranteed contract next season.


    Right now the only players that will most likely remain for next season are Green, Wallace, AB, Sully, Oly, Smart, Young, and Zeller.


    That's just 8 players.


     


    Besides, the Celts can always try to move up in the draft by offering multiple picks for a pick in the top 5.


    Having a lot of picks is not a problem.

    How about keeping our assets and clearing some cap space and going into the lottery next year and maybe signing a guy like Al Jefferson for alot less money than Love will command?  Is Love so much more of an impact player than Jefferson?  I don't think so.

    Better, younger, less injury, shoots 46% from three point land, Big AL doesn't shoot threes... Yes Love is better, I agree you don't break the bank but a #1, one of our young players and a contract player is not "too much."  Even if we don't get him and he plays out his one year deal we should go after him next year....

    Big Al signed a multi-year contract with Charlotte last year.

    Re: Celts Get T.Zeller and Marcus Thornton

    Like getting Zeller and the #1 draft pick (If Lebron goes back to Cleveland , this is pick #26 - #30) , so was it really necessary to take on Marcus Thornton's contract ? Couldn't Ainge have done a little better tha that ? Why not just give the whole $10.3M trade exception to Paul Pierce ? I'd much rather have him than Thornton, wouldn't you ?

     

    Don't understand how Cleveland is giving us a #1 and Zeller when we give them nothing.....

     

    I don't know about this trade

    Better, younger, less injury, shoots 46% from three point land, Big AL doesn't shoot threes... Yes Love is better, I agree you don't break the bank but a #1, one of our young players and a contract player is not "too much."  Even if we don't get him and he plays out his one year deal we should go after him next year.... If that falls through sign Big Al instead.

    He has an opt out clause after the second year.  So, if he opts out, then I would make a play for him.
