Is Hayward, Thomas & Horford your Big 3?

Written by 

Justin and Jon discuss Rajon Rondo’s move to the bench as the Chicago Bulls have begun their anticipated slide in the standings.

Justin believes the Bulls are about to blow things up after throwing money and stars at their problems. Steph Curry’s season and a weakened bench are discussed as the guys looked at the Warriors.

Potential stars and their availability are reviewed. Would Larry Bird deal Paul George to Danny Ainge? Even after Kevin McHale dealt Garnett to Boston? Jon Duke feels George is the perfect acquisition for Boston given the state of game play today.

Do you need a bruising center next to Horford? Justin believes that’s only situational and Kelly Olynyk can start alongside Horford. Justin also goes on record, stating the C’s are only one piece away. Boston should begin separating and settling into the 3 seed in the East.

Justin says a trade at the deadline (for a star player) likely hampers free agency for Boston. A trade would add salary to the team, requiring young players to round out the roster. Zizic and Yabusele are the candidates to come over next year and be those guys.

Gordon Hayward appears to be a prime target in free agency and one that would fit seamlessly. Justin brings up a point however; does a team financially centered around Hayward, Thomas and Horford get you where you want to be?
