This website says Beal and Porzingis are great. Rescind the trades, Wizards! – 3:32 PM
Cameron Tabatabaie @CTabatabaie
The Celtics organization was so diligent in handling Udoka’s sexual misconduct, perhaps alienating their key players in the process.
Turning around and trading for Kristaps Porzingis would be puzzling, to say the least. – 3:31 PM

Brogdon-Morris-Porzingis doesn’t work. #Celtics need to send out about $7.7M more (Muscala/Gallo? Champagnie/Kornet/Muscala?). Morris-Brogdon off by about $1M from LAC side. There’s going to be more to this. How many players can BOS/LAC reasonably pile on the Clipper? – 3:24 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Flipping Brogdon for Porzingis is just good roster management. KP makes Boston better and hedges against Horford aging. – 3:22 PM
Michael Dugat @mdug
KP becoming a third option on a contender seems to be pretty much the ideal situation for him. – 3:20 PM

Malcolm Brogdon this season:
— 14.9 PPG
— 4.2 RPG
— 44.4 3P% (4th in NBA)
— 6th Man of the Year
Top 5 in points, assists and 3-pointers off the bench. PM

KP to BOS? Not sure there’s a better combo of need and fit. – 3:15 PM

Shams Charania @ShamsCharania
Sources: Wizards, Celtics and Clippers are in strong talks on a trade that would send Kristaps Porzingis to Boston, Marcus Morris and draft compensation to Washington and Malcolm Brogdon to Los Angeles. Sides are still working through details and Porzingis’ $36M player option. – 2:50 PM
Ball Don’t Lie @Balldontlie
The Celtics are pursuing Kristaps Porzingis in a potential opt in-and-trade deal with the Wizards, per @ShamsCharania.
Porzingis averaged career-highs of 23.2 PTS and 49.8 FG% last season. PM

New: What exactly would a potential Kristaps Porzingis deal for the Celtics look like? What I’m hearing after @ShamsCharania reported Boston’s interest in the big man…2:35 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
If Porzingis declines his 36M player option, #Celtics can’t realistically acquire him. If he opts in, it’ll drastically expand the team’s salary base starting next year. Would he be a rental? C’s would need Grant in a S&T scenario, or Pritchard/Gallo go as salary. Brogdon needed. PM
Kevin O’Connor @KevinOConnorNBA
The Celtics are after Kristaps Porzingis, per @ShamsCharania. Earlier this week I wrote about KP’s career-best season and how he could help a contender. Third blurb in here:…2:15 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Victor Wembanyama is considered a generational prospect. No hate at all because I like his game, but what makes him so much better than Kristaps Porzingis? If he’s generational, he has to clear Porzingis pretty easily. What are some of the major differences that separate him? – 2:14 PM

Dice @BGlobeSports que @Celtics “no tiene la intención” de canjear a Jaylen Brown y sí de extenderle un contrato supermax por $295 millones y cinco temporadas.
Quieren retener a Grant Williams. Un base tendrá que irse, Brogdon o Pritchard. Brogdon cobra más. PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
I understand #Celtics moving Brogdon to retain Grant Williams. I understand trading Grant & taking back less money while retaining Brogdon. If both end up gone and the overall talent of the roster decreases, you can’t feel great about that. Let’s see what happens. – 3:31 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Interesting that #Suns’ team dynamic will closely match what #Celtics’ would’ve been if they traded for Beal. Would’ve taken more draft capital given that salary like Brogdon going to DC would’ve been long-term. Tatum, Brown, Beal become 150M AAV quickly. No MLE, fewer picks… – 8:29 PM

New: Bradley Beal is heading to the Suns but the fallout of the trade will impact the Celtics in a number of ways. What the deal means for Malcolm Brogdon trade talks with Phoenix and other Celtics offseason possibilities…5:44 PM

More on this storyline

The deal is considered a “high possibility” according to league sources briefed on the negotiations. Boston would also need to send out additional salary, with Danilo Gallinari’s expiring $6.8 million closing the gap to reach the salary matching threshold. -via The Athletic / June 21, 2023
My podcast partner Chris Haynes reported Friday that Boston is looking to move out at least one of its guards to ease a backcourt logjam. Word is the most likely of the group to be dealt, entering the weekend, was Malcolm Brogdon rather than Marcus Smart, Derrick White or Payton Pritchard. -via / June 17, 2023
Two names to keep an eye on in Phoenix’s trade pursuits: Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins and Boston Celtics guard Malcolm Brogdon. The Suns acquiring either of those veterans might require a third team to accept Paul’s outgoing salary — such as the Houston Rockets with their $60 million of cap space and counting — but Brogdon and Collins are a pair of players Phoenix has registered interest in during trade conversations with Boston and Atlanta, respectively, that date back to the trade deadline, sources said. -via Yahoo!
