 For a simple guideline. Put Tatum and Brown in your favorite lineup,  any position you want. Anything goes have fun and explain why you like the lineup. 

 Tatum or Brown can play point guard,  center, whatever.  I'll go first. 

"Youth Movement"

Timelord
Tatum
Brown
Nesmith
Prichard

 Amazing spacing outside of TL. And for possibly be the future five.

"Close out lineup "

Tatum plays point guard basically at the end of games anyway

Horford
Timelord
Brown
Richardson
Tatum

 Any and all lineups are welcome.  Haven fun with it...

Luka - Brown - Kawhi - Tatum - Bam

Imo, the best possible lineup, fit-wise, involving the Jays.

Luka runs the offense. Kawhi and Tatum operate as secondary shot creators. Bam sets screens on the perimeter and rolls hard to the basket. Brown is a 3+D role player (in this lineup).

Switch pretty much everything on defense. Shortest player is Brown at 6'6". Tallest one is Bam at 6'9".

KG
Larry
Tatum
Brown
Pierce

Sixth Man McHale

That would be an amazing lineup to see..had to throw McHale in there since those are amazing duos in each era...
A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals.

Push yourself again and again. Don't give an inch until the final buzzer sounds.

  One of the lineups I think would be interesting is a shooting lineup of
 Pritchard
 Nesmith
 Jaylen
 Jayson
 Horford
 
  I donít know if it wil carry over into the future but I really think Horford is gonna help Rob a lot. Both such talented passers.

KG, i made it the starting 5 and the "three rotation players" who will get minutes in the playoffs.

"Must have a legit front court"

Schroder
Brown
Tatum
Horford
Robert

Smart
Richardson
Nesmith/Pritchard

Can this lineup beat the Nets in a 7 game series?
No.

With  the addition of one "top NBA player", can this team beat the Nets in 7 games?

Solid maybe.

It's a worthwhile question because I do think this team can throw out lots of different kind of lineups, including huge lineups like:

Smart
Brown
Tatum
Horford
Kanter

I don't want Horford at the 4 much but this team is big at every position while still spacing the floor with 4 out. Swap in Pritchard for Kanter and go smaller but with shooting everywhere and everyone still playing a natural position.
