Malcolm Brogdon: I'm hoping I can help Celtics get over the hump and win a championship

- by

Though Brogdon brings his experience running the Pacers and has his way of leading an organization, he says he just wants to fit into what makes the Celtics successful. “These guys are proven winners at a championship level,” Malcolm Brogdon said. “I’m hoping to be one of the pieces that can help them get over that hump and win a championship.”

So from reading Twitter room, it appears 94% of you believes this offseason will be unmitigated disaster if Heat doesn’t acquire star and that last year’s run to Game 7 of Eastern Finals was aberration, because 76ers got Tucker; Celtics got Brogdon; Hawks Murray; Bucks Ingles. OK – 4:23 PM

Sean Deveney @SeanDeveney
The Pacers have been trying to trade Malcolm Brogdon for months now. Glut of PGs on the market made it near impossible. Once Brunson to the Knicks happened, they were left with no real suitors and a package of a young guy (Nesmith) and a pick was the best they were gonna get. – 2:22 PM

Mark Montieth @MarkMontieth
Giving Brogdon that contract extension seemed questionable at the time, but it had to be a positive factor in the trade to Boston. If he had one year left his value would have been diminished. Always good to lock up assets. – 2:16 PM
Mark Montieth @MarkMontieth
Frankly, I’m surprised the @Indiana Pacers got that much for Brogdon. I can’t imagine the deal will go over too well with @Boston Celtics fans. – 2:14 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Very quick thoughts on the Brogdon to BOS deal:
-BOS gave up very little to get him
-Brogdon will miss time. So will Smart. BOS has depth to cover that w/ White & PP
-$17.1M TPE is still there til July 18, but I don’t think it gets used now. There’s tax and then there’s TAX – 2:14 PM

Pacers had to trade either Brogdon or Hield given their status as starters and contracts. Hard to imagine they could have done better for Brogdon. Nesmith is intriguing. Will be interesting to see how Brogdon fits in Boston if he stays healthy. – 2:06 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Malcolm Brogdon is such a huge addition for the Celtics. Such a smart move for Boston. – 2:06 PM

Brogdon is a perfect acquisition for The Discourse because he allows both the “Celtics need another ball-handler!” and the “Smart can be the primary ball-handler!” factions to feel vindicated. – 1:57 PM

Boston with plenty of nice, subtle moves, including Brogdon. Heat in holding pattern. (But it doesn’t matter when upgrades come, as long as they come.) Lots and lots of moving parts in East from when we previously knew it. – 1:49 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Pacers deal Malcolm Brogdon to Boston per @Adrian Wojnarowski. In exchange, the Pacers get Aaron Nesmith, Daniel Theis, a 2023 first round pick, Malik Fitts, Nik Stauskas, and Juwan Morgan.
Sorta big bet on Nesmith, a former lotto pick pegged as a shooter coming out of college… (1/2) – 1:48 PM

The Wolves not going after Brogdon tells me they are still in the Kevin Durant sweepstakes. Smart move by Connelly because Kevin Durant is better than Malcolm Brogdon. – 1:48 PM

Brogdon to #BostonCeltics is my favorite move of free agency so far. They didn’t need Kevin Durant, they needed a tweak upgrade and that is exactly what they got. #NBAFreeAgency1:48 PM

Malcolm Brogdon has 3 years left on his contract:

Malcolm Brogdon is a shooter, defender, ball-mover. High IQ player, high-character guy.
Tremendous trade by Brad Stevens. – 1:45 PM
Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
Brad Stevens continues to aggressively add talent to the Celtics. The Celtics now have incredible depth in the backcourt — the 6’5″ Brogdon can play (and defend) multiple positions — and if Gallinari signs on will go ten-deep with high level players. – 1:44 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers’ top priority in free agency was to move on from Malcolm Brogdon — and they’ve done it.
To Boston, @Adrian Wojnarowski says, for Daniel Theis, Aaron Nesmith, a 2023 first-rounder and a few other pieces.
Brad Stevens knows the Pacers well. And this is a good situation for Brogdon. – 1:44 PM
Jake Fischer @JakeLFischer
Had heard Indiana was interested in Grant Williams, as the Pacers have been connected to a lot of forwards. For Boston to land Malcolm Brogdon without sacrificing Williams is a big win for the Celtics. – 1:43 PM

Like that trade for Boston if Brogdon can stay healthy. An extra ball-handler and a low-turnover player who can stabilize things when the rest of their core is chucking the ball all over the place. – 1:41 PM

Brogdon is a nice add for what they gave up
Even more of a signal for Heat to lock in on Durant/Mitchell types with top of East getting stronger – 1:39 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Brogdon to Boston is NOT a TPE trade. He makes $22.6M, so Boston is sending back some salary here. – 1:37 PM
Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
The Indiana Pacers are trading guard Malcolm Brogdon to the Boston Celtics, sources tell ESPN. – 1:35 PM

More on this storyline

A team source stressed Friday Marcus Smart remains the Celtics’unquestioned starting point guard, and that the team was simply looking to add depth. Brogdon and Gallinari both had starring roles, but they’re willing to step back in order to pursue championships. -via Boston Globe / July 1, 2022
The Celtics still have other assets at their disposal, as their $17.1 million trade exception that expires July 18 was not used in the Brogdon deal. But a league source said the team is now unlikely to use that to acquire another substantial piece. The source said the Celtics had actively pursued trades involving the exception over the past two weeks, but ultimately the deal involving Brogdon, whose salary was too large to fit into the exception, turned out to be the best option. -via Boston Globe / July 1, 2022
