Seltzer interviews B-Co
Fwiw, he says nothing

He did mention deferring to the future on some picks as a possibility

if you've watched that footage of the Spike Eskin night at the Sixers game or read that Max Rappaport article, I don't know how you walk away with a conclusion other than this vocal minority of Sixers fans are obnoxious losers, but that take was a bit too much.

This is exactly what spike and levin probably wanted right? Some old media person freaking out about the billboard. The masturbation comments were a plus.

Jah to Sac is perfect. Fits nice next to Trill.

Celtics get Boogie
Kings get Jah
Sixers get Brooklyn pick

Love the #$!&@ out of that, all counts

The risk of the Jah pick losing value (which, shrug) is mitigated by the extra shot at #1

There's no way it would happen before the lottery though.

What if we threw something else in? Boston can't think a for-sure #4/5 pick in this draft is that attractive can they

What else would get it done? If you were Boston, would the Thunder pick be worth the risk of losing out on the #1 pick?

I don't think they think it's that valuable, but they certainly know the value goes way up if it's 1 or 2. I don't think there's a realistic hedge there.

Okafors knee makes this annoying. Boston wouldn't trade for him without a physical or something.

The Kings deal makes it exciting. Boogie for that pick would be steal for Boston.

Per the reports they would probably want something more quick-impact like Covington, maybe with something coming back our way.

By that same logic you wonder if they'd go big on Okafor, but I guess he's a good bet to be an elite scorer on that team

Embiid/Holmes
Noel/saric
Simmons/Grant
Ingram/Murray
Free agent/TJ

Sounds good.

May want to trade grant instead of cov to keep some shooting.

Noel/Embiid (to start off at least)
Simmons/saric
Ingram/Covington
Murray/Stauskas
Fa/TJ
