    Like what happened at the trade deadline, we should be prepared for no fireworks.




    The only move Ainge might make tonight is acquiring a 2nd round pick.




     





    That's what I'm thinking. Looks like the most likely scenario. Ever since the lottery, my hopes of anything good or big happening in the near future has been crushed. Here's to hoping Danny did his homework on these young'ns.

If Embiid lands in a C's uni, let's hope he's not a "Hoosker Don't". But I agree. At this point, it's looking like "snakes and sparklers".

    June 26th is finally here! Let the fireworks begin! 


     


     


     


    It appears DA is steering the ship towards a rebuild!


     


     


     


    I hope the Cs find a way to get E. Payton - AND - acquire some 2nd round picks! 


     


     


     


    What will happen with Rondo, Bass, Green, AB, trade exception? 


     


     


     


    Stay tuned!! 


     


     





    The biggest mystery to me of tonights Draft , is this $10.3M Trade Exception we've been talking about for a year ....


     


     


     


     


    Tonight we will FINALLY find out if this obscure part of last yrs KG/PP trade was actually one of Danny Ainge's most genius moves ever, $10.3M of anything should make for a HUGE bargaining chip in tonight's draft.....let's see if all the talk about the $10.3M Trade Exception adds up to anything


     


     


     


    I STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND A DAMN THING ABOUT THE $10.3M TRADE EXCEPTION !

    So if a team like the Lakers has a contract that they want to dump so they can gain cap space they can trade a player like Nash and their pick #7 to the Cs.  The Cs use the TPE  and gain a #7 pick. The Lakers clear up cap space so they can go after a free agent like Melo.

    Lakers will not just trade the #7 pick for a salary dump.

     

     

    Most probably it will be Rondo for Nash and the #7 pick.

    If that happens - party at Mel's house!!

    Joel Embiid's seriously in play for three spots in top part of lottery: 76ers (3), Celtics (6), Lakers (7), league sources tell Yahoo.

    Lakers not sensing much momentum for a pre-draft trade. As of now, they're keeping the seventh overall pick.

    #NBA source: Asking price for No. 1 pick as high as 3, 10 and 32 from #Sixers. If #76ers stay at 3, Exum seems the likely pick.

    Asik goes for a future pick and Afflalo goes for a second pick. I wonder why DA didn't try for either of those at those prices

    DA may feel confident Embiid will be there at 6!

    Who needs Asik or Embiid when according to a source, not so reliable, Vitor Faverani is the next Brad Miller!




    As long as the trade for Spencer Hawes movement is dead - I am happy!

    According to espn and nesn, the Celtics are going to pass on Embiid because of medical concerns. Smokescreen or the truth? Saying if true Danny might trade down.

    I said I didn't want Asik either after watching him play vs Port. Vitor may not be the next Sabonis but he's not as bad as some think, for a guy moving to new country,language and a new league he showed some promise. Maybe DA thinks we can land Embiid.

    I hope he doesn't trade down.  If so and he gets say, the 13th pick, then what the F did we tank for!? We got the 13th pick last year without tanking like we are the Wizards or something.  That would be a monumental disappointment and a sign that maybe DA isn't quite as on the ball as he used to be.

    There's a lot of fluff and smoke screens going on. Relax and enjoy the ride. I don't see Danny trading out of the top 10. Like Greenlp said why would they have tanked to be pick out of the top 10?
