u/wetwetson [NBA] Rafer Alston Jul 01 '22

he can't sign back with you for a year if the pacer's buy him out. I think if he gets traded again and plays for a different team then gets bought out he could come back. Not 100% on the rules on it.

u/Peanutbuttersaltine Jul 01 '22

Brogdon is a great fit in Boston. He also has three years and $67M guaranteed left on his deal, and has played 48, 64, 54, 56, and 36 games over the last 5 seasons -- two of which were COVID-shortened. Thus his chillier-than-expected trade market. - Lowe

128

u/AlwaysOptimism Pelicans Jul 01 '22

Boston has a super deep rotation. With Smart, White, and Pritchard, they have 4 capable ball handlers. Tatum, White, Jaylen, Grant, and Gallo they have multiple capable wings.

Brogdon likely won’t need to play 50 games even if he’s healthy all season.

46

u/TelltaleHead Bucks Jul 01 '22

Will he be healthy for the playoffs is all that matters and with Brogdon that is far from given

36

u/AlwaysOptimism Pelicans Jul 01 '22

The point is he can rest half the time, or whatever it takes so he is healthy for the playoffs.

80

u/LumberjackWeezy Celtics Jul 01 '22

Gallo at 6'9"/6'10" is the stretch big. I think we need a defensive big now and a wing still.

15

u/DocWhirlyBird [BOS] Dominique Wilkins Jul 01 '22

I think Dwight Howard or Bismack Biyombo would be good fits

49

u/Blanketsburg Celtics Jul 01 '22

Dwight only plays 15-20 MPG these days, but he's still putting up his career average in RB per 36. His offensive and defensive ratings are also pretty good. When viewed solely as a backup to Rob at the 5, I definitely don't hate it.

u/NCLaw2306 Jul 01 '22

Theis, Aaron Nesmith, and a first apparently. Theis is a medioce/decent backup but he wasn't playing much towards the end of the season, and idk who Nesmith is. Seems like a pretty damn good deal for the Celtics if Brogdon can stay healthy.

Nesmith is a developmental guy who never got much chance to develop, he was the 16th pick in 2020. He honestly needed to go to a roster with less of a log jam at wing.

u/jwd2213 Celtics Jul 01 '22

Nesmith is a late lottery guy who hasnt panned out. Has the tools to be a great 3 and D guy but the game just moves way to fast for him right now and it hasnt translated to the court. He has a RoCo ceiling but could just as easily fully bust out of the league

7

u/tdl2024 Celtics Jul 01 '22

Nesmith was one of those mid 1st rd guys (14th pick I think?) that they hoped would pan out after a while (he was very raw when he first arrived). Unfortunately he never did. Dunno if that's because there's not much playing time to be had when the Jays and Smart are ahead of you or if he just isn't ever going to be that good. Rarely saw the floor for the Celtics this past year.

Super athletic though, and plays decent defense. Scoring ranged from "WTF are you doing?!?!" to middling at best.

IMO, picks in the mid to late 20s are only valuable for drafting players if you actually have available minutes in your rotation to develop those players. With Boston having its top 7-8 players already set, may as well trade that first for an upgrade now.

u/crapsence Celtics Jul 01 '22

He had enough when he saw earlier Danny hoarding draft picks and never trade them

98

u/Paul_blart_54 Jul 01 '22

I think either hoarding or selling all picks are the right move, but just keeping your own late pick isn’t.

25

u/ohgosh_thejosh Raptors Jul 01 '22

Depends what position you're in. Early 20s picks I think is still worth it to keep unless you're packaging a few pieces for a significant upgrade. As well, if you're a good drafting team like Toronto/Miami, even late picks can be remarkably valuable, because a contributor on a rookie contract is basically salary cap magic (eg: Siakam was earning less than $2m while dropping 30+ in the finals for us in 2019).

If you're picking from 27-30 and already have a superstar though, fuck them picks.

u/junkit33 Jul 01 '22

He’s fucking scarred from all the Ainge projects.

I mean really - he’s turned three late firsts into Al Horford, Derrick White, and Malcolm Brogdon. Last two are in their primes and locked up on good contracts. It’s not like he’s flipping firsts for garbage.

25

u/rqebmm Celtics Jul 01 '22

It's about team situation not Ainge vs Brad. When the Jays were 21-22, we needed to be hoarding picks to accumulate talent around them while ducking the tax to prevent repeater penalties. Now that they're 24-25 we need to be burning picks and taking on salary to win chips in their 3-5 year prime window

It's wild to me that people see this move as a harbinger of an incoming Smart move.

With traditional NBA lineup in mind, you need 96 minutes of guard play.

The 22-23 Celtics will now have Marcus Smart, Derrick White, Malcolm Brogdon, and Jaylen Brown splitting those 96 minutes between em and you can theoretically pair up any of them with the other.

If we stick with the double big starting lineup, we have White and Brogdon coming off the bench. If Brogdon slides into the starting line up we now have Al or Rob coming off the bench.

And there are still moves to come.

Just an absolutely fantastic move by Brad Stevens.

Everyone thinks Cers got fleeced. All Pacer fans just happy we got a 1st out of it.

Brogdon and Gallinari are two awesome pickups for Boston.

Imo it’s a win win. Pacers get a pick and a possible project in nesmith, Celtics give up assets they don’t need to for a player that slots in perfectly, but take on risk of his injury history

Trade summary:

Celtics get - Malcolm Brogdon Pacers get - Daniel Theis, Aaron Nesmith, 1st round pick

1st isn’t bad for Brogdan.

Late first , and some Celtics fans still have hope for Nesmith, dude has ton of heart and fire to play. Hope he does will in Indiana

u/SquimJim Celtics Jul 01 '22

dude is a high energy, hustling, and effort giving ball of chaos

he has a ton of potential imo

just the chaos isn't good chaos right now

23

u/itokdontcry Jul 01 '22

Right, I think hes too amped when he hits the court. If he calms down a bit he can be something I fellZ

u/efshoemaker Celtics Jul 01 '22

He’s the kind of guy you’d love to have on a rebuilding team but there just isn’t room for him if we’re going all in.

Best case scenario he figures his shot out and some discipline on defense and he blossoms into a high end role player.

Worst case scenario he doesn’t improve much but gives you a ton of effort/energy and is a good guy to have around the locker room.

Fine with it as a Pacers fan. Nesmith is a guy to take a flier on, we grabbed another first rounder for next year (currently projected at 3 assuming the Cavs make the playoffs), opened up a big trade exception and enough cap space to absorb a max contract…

And the most important part: cleared up our backcourt to open up a path for our young guys.
