Bill Simmons Wants The Celtics To Trade For Luke Kennard, Reminds Everyone They Still Have $17.1M Trade Exception

As the Boston Celtics seek a return to the NBA Finals, they have some very important decisions to make this offseason. Since the Cavaliers in 2018, no team has made it to the finals after losing the previous year, so they need to make sure they get it right this summer.

The Celtics also happen to have an opportunity to improve their roster with the Traded Player Exception (TPE). They have 3 significant ones, valued at $17.1 million from Evan Fournier’s sign-and-trade with the Knicks, $6.9 million from Juancho Hernangomez’s trade with the Grizzlies, and $5.9 million US dollars from Dennis Schroder’s trade with the Rockets. When word broke that John Wall plans to sign with the Clippers, Bill Simmons sent the NBA world a reminder that the Celtics have this $17.1 million trade exemption and that he wants them to take advantage of it to get Luke Kennard.
