    I think Celtics defense will be OK. The exception being when they are facing skilled bigs. The league for the most part has become perimeter oriented, and the Celtics have a number of really good wing defenders. The guys that are going to kill them are the Giannis’s, Embiid’s, etc. They will be fine most nights. It would not shock me if the Celtics are hanging around in the regular season that they make a move to shore up that interior at the trade deadline.

    I’m a diehard 76ers fan and almost did a backflip when they signed Horford. Guy is the most underrated player of this generation.

    Going to the 76ers made it even harder to accept. Horford was the most consistent player for us last year.

    According to a league source, there have been talks between the Golden State Warriors and the Detroit Pistons regarding a potential D’Angelo Russell, Andre Drummond swap.

    Wouldn’t surprise me. Hard to imagine Drum on the Warriors, since Drum is supposed to be anti-new NBA as a true C, while the new NBA was basically lifted to some extent from the Warriors.

    I honestly don’t expect Drum to be a Piston next year. Reggie will be a FA at the end of the season. Russell was supposed to be a cap filling move that would eventually get dealt. Kind of fits together.

    If you think he gets hot from 3 again, then yes. But I think Waters is the safer play at the $4k range.

    Makes sense

    Not seeing this deal discussed anywhere other than people making up trades for amusement.

    Unless the Warriors want Drummond’s expiring deal, I don’t see a need for them to make that move. Unless for some reason they don’t think AD works out in LA, and they think they can sign him as a free agent.

    Kanter is out. Sounds like Turner will play limited minutes.

  • Ace15

    Wood has bunred me so many times this pre-season, but I’ll go back to the well once again tonight.

    Kanter is out
    Pacers starters are only playing the 1st half so Turner is limited.

    That leaves Drummond, Joel and KAT or the Celtics.

    That deal as presented will never happen. Detroit throwing in a 1st and Sekou is RIDICULOUS. That guy from Bleacher Report should be banned from ever writing anything again.

    I think Wood gets a lot of run tonight. Blake out. Kieff might not play. They need to decide whether they’re keeping him or not.

  • JSteele

    I just read an interesting article on how TJ McConnell’s role will be to push Aaron Holiday. Essentially he’s there to be the 3rd string point guard and not necessarily a key rotation piece. That makes me think he doesn’t get a ton of run here, especially since the goal is to play “key” rotation pieces. I think Holiday gets a lot more run and McConnell sees less.

    If they don’t keep him it will show the fan base they are not interested in winning.

    Lol me too ace welp here he is again back in my lineups

    They are looking to trade either Galloway or Khyri Thomas to free up a spot for Wood and Joe Johnson. I think he gets a lot of run tonight too.

    They ought to just cut Joe Johnson before his salary is guaranteed on the 22nd. They are only in to him now for like 220K.
