Young was the first blood drawn from the Brooklyn trade. The Nets already had a pick swap in place with the Hawks, so they used the least favorable between the projected Nets and Hawks selections. They took Young, who has not panned out despite Bill Simmons’ glee at the time.
The Celtics did not receive the Nets’ pick outright due to the pick swap in place with the Hawks. Instead, they got the second-most favorable pick out of three among the Hawks, Nets, and themselves. They took Rozier in a mild surprise.
The Celtics received this pick as compensation for allowing Doc Rivers to get out of his contract to coach the Clippers. Hunter is no longer on the team.

But after tonight, no more shade shall be thrown in Jones’ direction.
Jones remembered the pain he suffered when James sent his shot into that Wholesale NFL Jerseys China aforementioned lake. With that pain, he summoned up the energy to yam the ball with James right on his back.
