- CELTICS ACQUIRE C J.NOAH & F C.ANTHONY FROM KNICKS IN EXCHANGED FOR PG T.ROZIER, SF J.BROWN, C/F'S A.JOHNSON(BUYOUT) & T.ZELLER(BUYOUT), AND j.jEREBKO(bUYOUT).

Why Celtics: They acquire 2 needs w/o having to give up draft picks. Noah, though his contract may be atrocious, is a great fit with AL Horford(teammate at UF). Melo gives the celtics that 1b option to go with star Isiah Thomas.

Celtics Lineup:

Noah/Olynyk
Horford/A.Johnson(returns)/Mickey
Melo/Crowder(6th man)/Jerebko(returns)
Bradley/J.Young/G.Green
Thomas/Smart/Jackson

Why knicks? Yes you acquired 0 draft picks, but you got out of the Noah deal w/acquiring expiring contracts. Plus you could build your core for next season around Hernangomez, Porzingis, Jaylon Brown, and Rozier. Not to mention a ton of salary cap space!

2017 Knicks LIneup:

C- Hernangomez/Quinn?Plumlee
PF- Porzingis/L.Thomas/Dour
SF- Brown/Kuszumkis
SG- Cort Lee
PG- Rozier

Draft night: they can focus on backcourt help: Malik Monk, De'Aaron Fox, Luke Kennard.
