Taking a look at Brad Stevens' trade value

Last week on a Globe reader by the name Ted F marinated on Brad Stevens the trade asset for a while. His conclusion? The only players in the NBA he'd deal Bradley Kent Stevens for were Anthony Davis and ... that's it. That's Ted F's whole wish list for Stevens. No Lebron, no Steph, no Harden. Not the first pick in the draft. If Ted F was the Celts' GM: you better dangle...

Brad Stevens loves being involved in the draft process

Boston Celtics: Start Isaiah Thomas Next Season?

Source: Maddie Meyer/Getty Images North America By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… If you watched the Celtics with Isaiah Thomas, there is no doubting that he is easily their best player.
