Eastern Notes: Monroe, Carter-Williams, Love

Greg Monroe isn’t available but Michael Carter-Williams is “undeniably gettable,” sources tell Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com. That conflicts with one side of an earlier report indicating that Milwaukee had let other teams know it was open to giving up Monroe for the right price, but it confirms the other part, about the team’s willingness to trade Carter-Williams just a year after acquiring him from the Sixers at last year’s deadline. The Bucks are turning away calls on Jabari Parker, Stein and Windhorst also write. See more from the Eastern Conference:

  • Cleveland has made it clear it wants a star in return for Kevin Love, not the role players and draft picks the Celtics are offering, league sources tell Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com. Some executives around the league are growing stronger in their belief that the Cavs are more likely to entertain Love trades in the summer than they are now. the ESPN scribes add.
  • The market is strong for the first-rounders that the Sixers have from the Thunder and Heat this year, according to Bobby Marks of The Vertical on Yahoo Sports, and with a below-average draft class and several teams devoid of first-round selections, it would be wise for Philadelphia to thinking about trading the picks, Marks opines.
  • The Heat have recalled Jarnell Stokes from the D-League, the team announced (Twitter link). Miami sent Stokes, whom the team is reportedly dangling in search of a second-round pick and tax relief, on assignment late last week so he could play in the D-League All-Star Game this past weekend, notes Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel (on Twitter).

I’d be willing to include a protected 2018 1st rounder if Milwaukee takes back Calderon, lol

MCW is a ball dominant PG (can’t shoot). Acquiring him would be a bad move considering they run the triangle. I’m not a fan of the triangle, but if you look at all of Phil Jackson’s teams when he ran the triangle, none of them had a ball dominant PG. If they give up the triangle, MCW wouldn’t be a bad idea but I can’t imagine the Knicks giving up that 2018 first rounder unless it has heavy protections on it and I don’t see the Bucks giving up MCW unless they get some value back (young, promising guy or… Read more »

Interesting, very bold move on both sides…2 win-now teams shaking it up, which is exactly why it probably won’t happen. That and Griffin is useless for several weeks. Maybe this trade could happen in June, but by then both GMs could be gone if they don’t win. 8))
