Heck with Kyrie ,Randle should be Plan A
Smart
Brown
Tatum
Randle
Horford
toughness team players and Randle can guard the Freak

Randle has issues defending players he has physical advantages against. Giannis is longer, faster, more coordinated, and overall better at basketball than Randle.

I agree.

Randle is a proven scorer who consistently adds more and more to his arsenal each year (he's become a threat from almost all areas), but he struggles defensively. We need to tighten up the paint and add more rim protection, and he simply doesn't add that. If Horford were younger and bigger and more of a center type, I could see Randle playing alongside him, but Randle needs a big shot-blocking center next to him to cover for his lapses (e.g., Gobert). I'd appreciate the scoring punch and rebounding, however. He's a tradeoff type of player, but one we probably don't need to take on as of right now.

Really?

I mean, they are basically completely opposites. Smart is an elite defender who is a solid playmaker with a limited offensive arsenal. Randle is a strong scorer (developing a 3 pointer too) and good rebounder who is quite a weak defender and a bit turnover prone.

I think Randle is an empty stats guy.

I love watching Randle when he's having a good night because he's an old fashioned back-to-the-basket player.

He's a very poor fit for the Celtics. I'm not sure that he can do his part in a switching defense, and the Celtics switch everything. He also is not a scoring threat from beyond the arc. He can stand out there all day and no opposing center is going to follow him out there.

He might be able to bang with Embiid a little, but I'm not sure that makes him worth the money.

Absolutely destroys Randle, Randle is a strong guy who bulls his way to the rim and isn't disciplined. Embiid is even stronger and has a massive length advantage.

So much for that idea. Defending Embiid has to be a real consideration for the Celtics. Horford defends him very well but he's 33 years old. Boston can't really afford to sign a big who can't help against Embiid in a playoff series.

As has already been pointed out, the C's will not have the cap space to go after Randle even if Kyrie leaves and Horford restructures his deal.

This can't happen.

lets take 100 million,  put KG in a robotic lab,   rebuild him with all new ankle , knee , hip joints , and shoulder joints .  Bionic KG !

Given what the Pelicans wanted from the Lakers, itís reasonable to assume they want Brown and Tatum in a trade package. If thatís the case, Danny needs to walk away.

Then thereís really no need for Zion and Randle on the Pels, so I doubt they resign him.

Randle have improved drastically and averaged 21/9/3 this past season with above average shooting efficiency while adding a 3 point shot to his arsenal.

Just saying I wonít be upset with this as next years squad if we strike out on AD..

PG: Rozier - Smart
SG: Brown - sharp shooter with 14th Pick (Herro or Alexander-Walker)
SF: Tatum - Hayward
PF: Randle - Morris
C: Horford - Baynes


Ball movement will be better, rotation will be tighter.


PG? rozier?
