Report: Celtics were willing to discuss Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart in Anthony Davis trade negotiations with Pelicans

The Boston Celtics lost the Anthony Davis sweepstakes because of their reluctance to include some of their most valuable assets during trade discussions. The All-Star forward has been traded from the New Orleans Pelicans to the Los Angeles Lakers, which left the Celtics with no choice but to move on. However, according to ESPN’s Ramona […] The post Report: Celtics were willing to discuss Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart in Anthony Davis trade negotiations with Pelicans appeared first on ClutchPoints.

The Celtics’ future is now

The Celtics’ future is now

Unwilling to sacrifice the youth movement means the future is now for the Boston Celtics. It’s a bittersweet day. First the bad news. After three plus years of targeting Anthony Davis, the Celtics did not acquire him despite having (by all accounts) the best collection of assets. Instead, he went to the hated Lakers to play with arch-nemesis LeBron James. Not great. On the positive side, we get to build around Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Marcus Smart (not to mention the Memphis pick). Those players represent the core future of this franchise and a great basis for building a team...

Marcus Smart as Kyle Lowry? Jaylen Brown as Kawhi Leonard? Casting the Celtics in The Finals

The Celtics were eliminated from the playoffs a month ago, but after ninety-one games this season, I can still see them. Like how an image burns into those old cathode ray tube TV’s when you turn them off, I’m still thinking about Boston even though they lost two rounds ago. It’s bittersweet watching The Finals. I know the Celtics--these Celtics--could have beat this version of the Warriors. But alas, it didn’t happen and yet, I see ghosts. Squint your eyes just enough and you start to recognize the specters from a forgotten season. Marcus Smart as Kyle Lowry There's history...

Rumor: Knicks, Lakers, Clippers, Bulls & Kings interested in Marcus Morris

Rumor: Knicks, Lakers, Clippers, Bulls & Kings interested in Marcus Morris

Boston’s veteran tough guy will receive many suitors after a career year. Marcus Morris Sr. had a tremendous season for the Boston Celtics last year. Although his production dipped a bit after the All-Star break, he was a bright spot in a lost season. When the Celtics were 10-10, he was inserted into the starting lineup with Marcus Smart to help patch things, and it worked. On the last day of the season, Morris Sr. was one of the very short list of Celtics who played with any sort of fire. Naturally, since all of this happened in a contract year, Morris will doubtless find a handful of...

Choose One: Marcus Smart Or Jaylen Brown? (podcast)

Brian Robb, Michael V. Pina and Rich Levine break down Jaylen Brown + Marcus Smart. Who does Danny Ainge keep? Who does David Griffin want? Brian, Michael and Rich debate whether the Celtics are better off keeping Marcus Smart or Jaylen Brown moving forward if they have to move one of them in a blockbuster trade this summer or if there could be alternative. They also wonder what could be the eventual ceiling for both young players.
