Something is not right with Jayson. Probably a crazy idea to trade him, but thoughts on this:
BOS In: Lillard, Simmons
POR In: Tatum, Horford
PHI In: McCollum, Langford, 2022 BOS 1st
Leaves us with a completely different look, and perhaps we add a 15th guy with a TPE:
If Brown continues his maturation, Simmons relaxes and becomes a dominant paint guy who can kick out to the open man, and Lillard continues to beast mode, I can actually see this team winning it all. A big risk is Lillard’s age but athletes are playing much longer than in the past, so it’s possible Lillard can be elite another 4-6 years (no guarantee Jaylen or Tatum is going to re-sign with us either, so age should not dominate all).
It’s no secret that I am skeptical JT and JB alone can truly excel together, let alone get us where we need to go (another title!). Perhaps we need to examine moving JT while his value is so high, especially considering how Jaylen just continues to grow quietly each year (hopefully he’ll never stop the trend)…
