    Orlando/Boston Trade Chatter

    Philly says no thanks to Embiid at #3.  Orlando grabs Embiid at #4.  Orlando trades Embiid to Boston for #6 and #17.


     


    *I’m not saying that I like this idea, but this is something that Hennigan is reportedly discussing.

    Do not overpay for Love or the unproven Embiid.    Our 6 and 17 will bring value to our teAM.

    This would be a great scenario for the Celts! Embiid would be the best pick for them imo... He would fit well with Rondo, Bradley, and Sullinger. That would be a great start to the rebuild and also would possibly make it quicker depending on how Embiid pans out.

    Embiid could end up being another Greg Oden. He is not a franchise changer like Duncan was in SA or when Bird was in Boston. I would like to see them go with #6 and #17. Still not a good team but making improvements. I also agree not selling your soul for Kevin Love. He doesn't have the cast here in boston. Do like OKC did and build through the draft.

    i'm fine with building through the draft, but that means trading rondo and probably green. which is fine. just get as much as you can for both.

    The same could be said for any player drafted really. You could draft the healthiest college player and they could have a career ending injury the day after the draft. I just like what Embiid could possibly bring to the table.

    i don't have a problem with green or rondo. they just don't need to be here if we're not going to rebuild quickly. if we rebuild fast, they fit right in. if not, they don't. simple as that.


    a starting 5 of rondo-stephenson/bradley-green-love-asik, for example, would be able to do some damage in the playoffs. but if we're going to draft 2 or 3 young prospects and develop them, there's no need to keep rondo and green around.

    Re: Orlando/Boston Trade Chatter

    Greg Oden had one leg longer than the other, making the chances for injury and microfracture surgery MUCH higher than a person with two equal length legs.

    From everything I have heard Embiid's medicals checked out and he actually could have played if Kansas made it to the Final Four.

    He won't be Olajuwon, but a 7' Ibaka with a crazy wingspan/reach right off the bat who develops into a 16-18ppg center based on his quick learning curve, soft hands, solid jumper to 15' and naturally great footwork/spacing in the post would be well worth picks 6 and 17.

    Re: Orlando/Boston Trade Chatter

    Trade 6 and 17 for Embiid

    Trade Rondo for pick 7, Nash (retires) and Kendell Marshall, draft Smart

    Trade Green and Bass to the win-now Hornets for pick 24, Biyombo and the expiring contracts of Gary Neal and Haywood.

    Draft Robinson III or Early 24th

    C - Embiid, Biyambo, Faverani

    PF - Sully, Olynyk

    SF - Wallace, Robinson III or Early, Chris Johnson

    SG - Bradley (extended 5 years), Smart, Babb

    PG - Marshall, Pressey, (Smart as well of course)

    Tankapalooza II in 2015

    By 2016-17 a team with four top 10 picks 2011-2015 and another seven guys drafted between 13 and 24 in the 2010-2015 drafts, tons of cap space, two more picks in 2016... and EVERYONE being under 25.... will be ready to make some noise!

    So...who gets traded for Love? Who gets traded for Asik? You really think scrubs and draft choices bring back both Love and Asik? Not-A-Chance!

    Trade Wee Devilman PG and Mr. Green jeans.....

    Re: Orlando/Boston Trade Chatter

    If we want them badly enough, it can happen. We have lots of draft picks and lots of contracts. 3 first rounders for love, plus sully and junk to make it work. One first rounder to Houston for asik, plus junk to make it work. The many of our guys are not über-desirable, but those 1st round picks are. Sully, oly, bass, hump are all potentially tradable. Even green and Bradley if need be. Like I said, I'm good with either route we take, but there are clearly two routes.

    Re: Orlando/Boston Trade Chatter

    How is Embiid going to last until pick 4?  There's two players in this draft with equal talent and without fractured backs.  And the team picking third used a lotto pick on a Center, last season.  Plus, some of these GM's that make decisions based on Youtube seem to think Dante Exum is pretty good.

     

    I still think Embiid will slide down to 5.  Why wouldn't he?  The exact same scenario unfolded last season, and Nerlens Noel (Chad Ford's #1 pick) slid down to 6.
