According to NBA insider Chris Mannix, the Celtics should be scared of Irving bolting for New York after the 2018-19 season.

-New York could either avoid point guards entirely in the draft (opening up the spot for Irving) or continue to draft young, high-impact point guards with the idea of enticing the Celtics to accept a sign-and-trade for Irving next summer.

Irving, 26, averaged 24.4 points per game for Boston during the regular season before going down with a knee injury prior to the playoffs.

Prior to Tuesday’s game, Phillies general manager Matt Klentak seemed open to improving the team–including the potential for a long-term piece.

If the Phillies look to make a deal that improves the team in 2018 and beyond, San Diego Padres star reliever Brad Hand could be the perfect fit.

Here’s how.

Dominant : Hand should be a household name Jackie Robinson Youth Jersey among baseball’s best relievers. Jeff Keppinger Womens Jersey Since the start of 2016, Hand owns a 2.51 ERA across 204.2 innings. That dominance has come with 11.8 SO/9 innings for the Padres lefty.
