Jon and Justin pick up where they left off in the late first round of the Live Draft Night Show, discussing the second round picks and potential contributions if the Celtics make room for Hayward and attempt to execute a sign and trade with Indiana for Paul George. They also debate whether the Cavs/Nuggets/Pacers three way is truly a threat to Boston's or just a way to drive up the price in negotiations. Isaiah Thomas' hip injury and concerns about whether the team might consider letting him go in Free Agency sprinkle the second half while Blake Griffin and Prozingis resurface as potential targets with varied cap implications.
Just when you thought the draft was going to be a boring #1 overall pick, Danny executes a trade with the Philadelphia 76ers that has much of Celtics Nation freaking out. There is lots of speculation, including who the Celtics will pick at #3 or if they will spin it off in a subsequent deal for the likes of Jimmy Butler, Paul George or possibly even Blake Griffin and using such a move to attract a free agent such as Gordon Hayward.
Jon and Justin spend the first half of the show discussing the finals and free agency thanks to Gordon Hayward's wife posting a picture of his daughter wearing a "Go Green" shirt on Instagram which was quickly removed. The second half moves into the draft, but then takes an odd turn as they debate the merits of attempting to trade for Blake Griffin if Chris Paul goes to the Spurs. Enjoy the show!
Jon and Justin welcome Ryan Bernardoni of CelticsHub to talk about the Offseason, Gordon Hayward and Markelle Fultz. Ryan recently released a two-part series examining the salary cap implications that decisions made this year and next will have on the Celtics ability to build a championship contending team both now and later, along with some potentially difficult decisions ahead.
