Ignoring all the insta-trade-haters... for those interested I think this may be a tough trade, but I'd pull the trigger:
BOS: Derrick Favors, Gordon Hayward
UTA: Jeff Green, Kelly Olynyk, Marhson Brooks, Nets 2014 1st round pick
I think thats fair deal. My other assumptions:
- Hayward is a stud. Can be a dead-eye outside shooter, a 15-20 ppg guy and a sneaky good defender.
- Favors is a stud. Can be an elite defender in a few years. Can also be a top 3 option on offense
- Sully will continue to improve as his body is shaped into the form of an NBA player. Sully has the skill and confidence to stretch the floor on offense and can play both frontcourt positions.
I strongly believe that Rondo (28), Bradley (22), Hayward (23), Favors (22), Sullinger (21) could be a solid starting lineup. Rondo is the leader. The other four guys are 23 and younger. Good, solid core. The rest of the team are solid veteran role players: Bass, Lee, Wallace, Hump etc...
If this trade is done around the time of the deadline, the Celtics pick may still well be in the high lottery. If we could get a Jabari Parker, then PHENOMINAL. If we in the 10-15 range, there is still enough talent to add to that core. Also consider the additional draft picks the next few years and you have a team that will continue to build and get better.
