Realistic, right? Realistic teams?!?!

I am usually an optimist, but when I just take a look at the totality of what went down last year and look at the likelihoods of a lot of things going on around the league, the less positive I feel about Kyrie and Davis being here next year.

Realistic:

Starters:
Smart
Brown
Tatum
Hayward
Baynes

Bench:
Williams
Morris
Ojeleye
1sr round pick
1st round pick
MLE Player
Player pick up in Horford trade
Player picked up in Horford trade

Rozier, Irving, Theis, Wanamaker all walk.
Morris re-signs
Baynes opts in.
Horford opts in and requests a trade and Danny trades him getting back a couple players and a 1st rounder
Yabusele is dumped.

The rebuild continues. Sigh!!!!☹️
This team could be in NBA purgatory(complete mediocrity) for a decade if Brown and Tatum don't take major, major leaps forward in their games in the next 2-3 years.

It's really possible what you're saying will happen.

Hopefully your scenario will not become a reality.

But if indeed your scenario comes true, we can blame it on trying to be good too fast.

What I mean is the Celts tried to become a playoff team faster than they should have.

When Ainge traded Pierce and KG in 2013, the Celts were supposed to be in the lottery for the next 3 years.

But the Celts only became a lottery team in 2014.

The following season, Celts became a playoff team in 2015 when they got Isaiah in a trade.

What I'm saying is the Celts were unable to get a franchise player in the draft because they were never bad enough to end up with a top 3 pick.

Uh, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum were both top 3 picks. Both have the potential to develop into franchise players.

My plan to build a long-standing perennial championship team.

Trade Tatum, Brown, Smart, Sac pick for Anthony Davis (yes that’s a lot but we save the Memphis pick for something else).

Trade Horford and the Clippers pick for Capella.

Trade Hayward, Memphis pick, our pick for Beal.

Resign KI, MLE a defensive wing, draft Admiral in the second round.  Sign ring chasing vets.

Kyrie/Beal/MLE/AD/Capella

Admiral/ring chasers

Setting aside the rest of your post, there's no way that Hayward plus the Memphis pick gets you Beal.

I read it on a Wizards page, if they wanted to tank for a few seasons it’s the best option.

You seriously think the Wizards would take that deal? Come on man.....

 Not unless they think Memphis is going to mini-tank for the next 2 years, I just wanted discussion. What would it take to land Beal and do you think the Celtics could trade for both this offseason?

It's going to take a star prospect most likely Brown, cap filler and 1-2 1st round picks, probably Memphis or Clippers + Celtics picks.

If LAL was going after Beal, it would take at least Ingram, Hart, and either Ball or Kuzma to even get the conversation started. Plus a first round pick.

Beal may not be on the same level as AD, but he's signed for a reasonably nice max contract for 3 years. Any SG that can average 25/5/4 isn't someone to sneeze at, that's a young All-Star just entering his prime.

My ideal team is something like (and while I think this is realistic, it isn't all that likely)

3 Team Trade
Pelicans acquire - Tatum, T. Johnson, Yabu, Memphis, 6
Suns acquire - Smart, 14, 22
Celtics acquire - Davis

Draft high risk high reward player at 20 (maybe Clarke, Bol, Johnson, etc. - i.e. someone that falls)
Opt-in or Re-sign - Horford
Re-Sign - Irving, Morris, Baynes

Sign - Rubio (MLE), Vet Min. SG (Carter, Rivers, Clark, Brewer, etc.)


So team

PG - Irving, Rubio
SG - Brown, VET FA
SF - Hayward, Morris
PF - Davis, Theis
C - Horford, Baynes, Williams
with the rookie, Semi, and others like that in the GLeague or deep bench

If you asked me today on 6/5/19 what was going to happen, I would guess that Kyrie signs with one of the New York teams and Danny trades for AD anyway.
