Boston has some pretty nice pieces. I think they need to move some things around and move on from Irving. He just did not seem to fit that team. Ainge will be wheeling and dealing a bit.

The Bucks will have some interesting off-season decisions to make as well.
- The biggest will be on Kris Middleton. Just how much do you give him. He's not a super-star but he's awful damn good. I can't see doling out a max deal to him, but someone might.
- Then there's Brogdon. Hopefully nobody will offer him crazy money and he'll be able to come back on a deal somewhere between Tony Snell and Eric Bledsoe type money.
- They have to decide what to do with George Hill's deal.
- They also won't get Brook Lopez that cheap again either.

Lots of decisions to make and money to spend.

I think you have to keep Middleton and Brogden. If not you have to go out and find a knock down shooter to fit the system and that’s not easy. For the first time in a long time Milwaukee is more desirable destination. That’s the good news. Bad news is the market is not strong which drives up price on both guys. If they leave i make a run at Klay Thompson, perfect system fit.

After watching Golden State last night I don’t think they get past Houston with Durant out. As to Boston they have decisions to make on Horford and Kyrie but Irving is as good as gone. Assuming they let all their FA’s walk they have one max slot and my guess is they go all in on Davis and a guard possibly Thompson. Actually Brogden would be a good fit for them if Bucks decide or he decides to take big $$$

I like the makeup of this team but all the credit goes to Bud. The system is perfect for the talent in Milwaukee. He’s got Bledsoe to play under control and the front office did a great job getting Hill and Mirotic

I like watching GS. I think Kerr is a fantastic coach and always have been a Curry fan and Durant is a top 5 talent if not the best player in the league behind Giannis
Will be interesting if NOS is interested in 3 picks for AD as they are all mid to late round picks and I don't know if Boston has any player that NOS would even want back if they could not get Tatum from them.

Also like Kerr as a coach but to much of an ass using his positon to go politcal way to often.

If I am NOLA not sure I want picks, more a combo of picks and players and not sure Boston makes the most sense. It all depends how Ainge sees what direction they go. They can be extreme and build around Tatum, Brown , Hayward or resign Horford and keep the core intact sans Kyrie and add Davis.
