Ric Bucher: “Boston is the ideal spot because they have the requisite talent to give up and still be solid, they have the culture, and they’re one step away…so that is also appealing. Miami is too for the same reason and I throw Phoenix in there as well… But if I look at the Boston Celtics in terms of culture, coaching, and most importantly, being able to give up a little bit of talent and still be able to play, I don’t know if Miami can make that deal. Phoenix – I’m concerned about where Chris Paul is health-wise, and I would say the same thing about Kyle Lowry with Miami, but Boston for the most part – all their important pieces are young or in their prime. So you can flip a Jayson Tatum and a Derrick White and a couple of future picks, still be hole, and still have your culture.” (Full Segment Above)
