I want to start by saying what the kings should do and what the kings will do are often polar opposites. This team is straight up awful. Ownership really wants to make the playoffs but, it's clear that this team is going no where for a while. The kings are looking at a long rebuild. In all honesty, they should blow up and start from scratch.
I'm proposing a three team tradehttp://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=ya95tzbk
Chicago sends: D Jones Jr, Brown Jr, (two expiring contracts) and a first round pick
Chicago gets: Dennis Schroder and Josh Richardson
Sacramento sends: Harrison Barnes and Tyrese Haliburton
Sacramento gets: Langford or Nesmith, Grant Williams, Prichard, Jones Jr, Chicago first round pick, Celtics 2024,Celtics 2025 pick swap, Celtics 2026
Boston Sends:Langford or Nesmith, Grant Williams, Prichard,Celtics 2024,Celtics 2025 pick swap, Celtics 2026,Dennis Schroder and Josh Richardson
Boston Gets: Harrison Barnes, Tyrese Haliburton and Brown Jr.
Boston is mortgaging its entire future essentially on this deal. This is basically the team for the foreseeable future. It doesn't give them much maneuvering. If it fails it could screw them. The Celtics will have what appears to be an amazing core for the long term.All while going under the tax this year I might add.
Two potential stars on cheap contracts
Haliburton and Robert Williams
Two High level veterans
Smart and Barnes
Potential Young wings
Langford or Nesmith and 2023 first round pick
The Celtics add shooting and playmaking.
