Celts Are Favorite To Get Westbrook If He Gets Traded
It’s tough for me not to get too excited here because I’m still hurting over the whole Durant thing, but I’m pretty excited about this. Westbrook would be awesome to have. He’s electric to watch and a top player in the NBA, and you have to imagine he wants out now that KD left his ass. I think that him and Horford would definitely be enough to make a bit if a run in the playoffs, but I don’t see it making us an elite team yet, but we’d definitely be a lot closer than we are right now.
I’d trade anyone on the team besides Isaiah at this point. Teams seem to value Marcus Smart a lot higher than I do so I’d move him quickly before teams have the chance to see he’s just not that good (besides on defense of course). It’s kinda crazy but I think the last guard besides Isaiah and Bradley that I’d want to trade is Rozier. He’s been awesome to watch in the summer league. Granted, it is the summer league but his last game he had 26 points and a bunch of rebounds for a guard.
My only objection to this trade is that I do not want to trade any of the Nets picks in the next two years because they are horrible and these next two draft classes are supposed to be insane. And because I don’t see Westbrook being the piece to win us a championship we may be better off letting him become a free agent holding on to the picks and signing him in the next offseason. Thus giving us Horford, Westbrook, Isaiah, and hopefully a future superstar.
