If I was a Boston Celtics fan, I would pray to receive Kristaps Porzingis.
Since Phil Jackson liked Jae Crowder during the trade deadline, he was even comfortable to give up Carmelo Anthony for Jae Crowder straight up. -
So the trade might be Jae Crowder, 3rd pick and Terry Rozier for Kristaps Porzingis.
Like Phil Jackson said, he wants a solid starter and a top 4 pick. Which we are getting.
But here's what Danny Ainge is thinking... Kristaps Porzingis is an upgrade from Amir Johnson and is way younger, who has great potential.
Then, with Jae Crowder's salary gone for a player a rookie contract player, in Porzingis. They are possibly able to grab Gordon Hayward in free agency, which makes a really good starting lineup to contend in the East.
Terry Rozier is just another player to throw in and has some potential to be a decent starter or good backup. -
Not saying I agree with this trade as a Knick fan, just sharing what might actually happen.
Anyways Danny Ainge, have fun toying around with Phil Jackson. ✌🏻
