As we’ve said before, the Boston Celtics are in the rare position of having too many assets and if they don’t do something with them, those assets will start to devalue.
The Celtics have a lot of young talent and a bushel full of draft picks so all things seem possible and one of the possibilities is acquiring Kawhi Leonard. The latest proposed trade: Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris, Terry Rozier, Daniel Theis and a protected 2019 1st round pick.
That’s a lot for anyone - when the Lakers traded for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the price was Elmore Smith, Brian Winter, Dave Meyers and Junior Bridgeman (Milwaukee also sent Walt Wesley) and that was seen as a huge price.
We’ll see what happens here but if Boston wants to pay that kind of a price, they might as well pay it for someone more like Anthony Davis.
