Nets trade Thaddeus Young, Celtics' future gets brighter

Danny has yet to make a deal, but the team is already in a better position.

It's the gift that keeps on giving. With that deal, the Brooklyn Nets only have Brook Lopez, Jarrett Jack (who they're also trying to trade), Bojan Bogdanovic, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Chris McCullough, and Sean Kilpatrick under contract heading into next season. Vegas already had them as the presumptive worst team in the league next year, and well, they're even worse now.

The Celtics' future on the other hand only gets brighter. The 2016 draft class is widely considered as very deep with rotation players, so their 8 picks tonight, Danny Ainge is in a good spot. However, 2017's incoming talent could have several stars. Boston has pick swap rights with Brooklyn's first rounder. If you thought today was crazy, this time next year could be even crazier.
