  1. I see Boston with 3 first round picks. Their own, Sacramento, and Memphis picks. If they don’t use them to trade for Jimmy Butler, if Sacramento doesn’t go in top 3, I see them trading Memphis and Sacramento. Next year is loaded at small forward. They could use a backup center, but there won’t be any in the top 10. I see them taking Cam Reddish, R.J. Little, or Nazr Little. With their own pick I see them taking a backup point guard. Terry Rozier showed in the playoffs last season he’s not up to Kyrie’s talent. Kyrie is one of the best ballhandlers in the league, a good 3 pointshooter, and a good finisher. He’s a top 5 point guard. I know what people are saying. Kyrie hasn’t talked to anyone. I expect him to not talk to anyone like LeBron did. With Hayward, Kyrie, and Horford Boston would have 3 veteran all stars. With Tatum, Brown, Robert Williams, and say Reddish they would have very good youth.

      They also have the Clippers pick, but that’s less likely to convey.

    • has Celtics as slight edge over Knicks in free agency. Says Kyrie and Jimmy Butler are still trying to find a way to play together.

    Hawks 3 picks and Celtics with 4 picks, but only 3 likely to convey this year…

    Which is crazy that the Celtics have 3-4 more 1st rounders next year, ON TOP OF their already stacked and talented roster..They could easily add one more core player, and then just trade the other 2-3 to acquire another core player…Adding TWO more significant talents to that roster is absolutely insane!! Boston is truly building a team to last, even if they lose Kyrie..

    Barring any unforseen injuries, the Celtics vs. Warriors match-up is going to be one serious championship series this year!! Should be a ton of fun to watch, can’t wait!!
