NBA 2K19 MyGM: 30 Franchise-Saving Trades You Must Make

29. Boston Celtics

2K

Players Out (position, rating, contract value/length, age):

Jaylen Brown (SG, 84, $5.17/1, 21), Marcus Smart (SG, 78, $52/5, 24) + picks

Players In (New Orleans Pelicans):

Anthony Davis (PF, 90, $81.28/3, 25)

Why:

A stacked roster makes finding enticing trades easy for anyone playing as the Celtics, and while losing Jaylen Brown is a wrench, he's an expendable asset if it means acquiring a player of Anthony Davis' calibre.

Davis is the second superstar you'll likely need to mount a serious championship challenge in season one. Combine him with Kyrie Irving, Jayson Tatum, Gordon Hayward, and Al Horford for a starting five that should dominate the east, though matching the Warriors will remain tricky.
