Bill Simmons against “panic trading” Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown
Bill Simmons has made it clear that he doesn’t think “panic trading” of either Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown would benefit the Celtics.
He said on Twitter on Saturday that it would be a “ridiculous overreaction” to do so, noting that the Celtics needed a “real playmaker” and head coach Ime Udoka to “stop blaming everyone. world”.
He then went into specifics about Brown and why giving him up would be a terrible choice. The longtime basketball scribe said the league changes coaches every two or three years and it is much more difficult to find a player in the top 35.
âThe worst case scenario for this shitty season would be to see them panic Jaylen and then in a year come to the conclusion that they hired the wrong coach,â Simmons wrote.
The Celtics are 18-21 Saturday afternoon and 2-11 in games decided by five points or less.
