Let's assume for a minute that management wants somebody other than Tatum as our starting PF, and that Horford's best role at this stage is as a backup big man.

Who are the power forwards that 1) are potentially available, and 2) are good enough to start?

John Collins is the obvious one.  He's overpaid relative to his production, and he'd cost one of Smart / Brogdon / White.  But, he's capable of playing the position.  Smart + Kornet for Collins?  I'd do it.

Other options?

Dallas were shopping C Wood at the trade deadline and found no takers. They will probably shop him again in the summer.

They do not like how he fits alongside Doncic & Kyrie. Appearently, that trio sucked when they played on the floor together. Catastrophically bad numbers in terms of how badly they were outplayed.

Siakam

Since the Raps underperformed this season, he might be available for the right price.

Not sure who they can actually get, but they need a Draymond Green. Someone who lights a fire up their butts. I have never seen a team play with less intensity. Smart used to play with that intensity, but he seems to be playing like the rest of the team now.
Someone who could get some offensive rebounds, bang with other teams bigs would be nice.
Even when they get their butts kicked they look beaten, never p---ed off. Just once Id like to see one of the team throw a chair or something

What's the price?  Smart + filler + ???

Dare I say it



Hes talking about retiring.  That just might mean he wants off the Lakers.  Brown and Smart gets it done. 

It might get us a championship.  I also might die a little bit inside.

I assume they'd ask for Brown. Chances are we'd say no unless perhaps we expand the trade. For instance, Brown + Smart for Siakam + Anunoby. Not sure I would do it. Both Siakam and Anunoby will likely hit free agency in 2024.

This, hes a free agent whos seeking a big contract, dont know how we can get him, maybe a sign and trade with smart + gw + 1st, but we do need someone like him. We need someone who can play of and mentor Js to reach the next level, theres not many of those around.

The PF position has changed a lot over the past decade. Many of them are just big wings. Horford is really a 5 now. When Rob plays with Al, Rob is better suited covering the opposing teams 4 if they are going double big. I think at this point Horford should be a 20-25mpg player, so the Cs need to be looking to add depth at the 4/5 position this off-season.

Id love to trade Smart for Wendell Carter Jr, but as a plan B Id be happy to add Naz Reid.

Quoting Nick from the now locked Ime thread:

At some point you have to blame the performance on the court on the players on the court. Every loss is not the coach's fault and every win isn't because of the players.

I wanted to trade Rozier and Marcus Morris for the rights to Wendell Carter JR years ago, and Id love to trade Smart for him now, with Isaac returning and the Magic possibly adding another impactful frontcourt player with the #6 pick in this years draft.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

I rather see a big comet hit the earth than LeBron come here.

Al Horford, Grant Williams, and Jayson Tatum are the only PFs I'm thinking about as a Celtic as long as we're still alive in the playoffs.

Plan to revisit the thread around 11:00pm EST?
