Trade Brown, Langford, all three 2020 first-round picks, our 2022 first-rounder, our 2024 first-rounder and our 2026 first-rounder
Giannis OR Kawhi
Both of them want to be the foil to LeBron/ADís Lakers, so where is a better place to do that than Boston? We need to get to 18 before the Lakers do, so we need a transformative superstar ASAP. We have more assets than others to make it happen with one of these two superstars who still havenít found a championship home. Obviously Giannis is preferable for his age alone. Letís get this done so we can win 18 next year (and 19 the year after, 20 the year after that, ...)
Hayward will definitely opt-in, so try to get us below the luxury line this year with a restructured five year deal that provides security to him and luxury tax relief for us prior to our new dynastyís first championship. Itís risky, but he can definitely become a Manu-like central figure in our dynasty led by Stevens.
Kanter will probably opt-in, and he complements Theis very well. But if we can get a better defensive/rebounding center at the MLE (see below), see who wants to get Kanter for a 2024 or 2026 first-round lottery-protected pick (or lottery-protected first-round swap in 2023 or 2025). If he opts-out, oh well.
Make it clear to Tatum and Smart that they are getting massive (max in Tatumís case) extensions next offseason after we win the NBA championship. They are the perfect number 2 and 3 to Giannis or Kawhi.
Kemba is going nowhere. Heís our PG, heís a boss, and heís going to live out at least this contract because itís hard enough getting free agents to come to Boston.
Continue to develop R. Williams, G. Williams and C. Edwards.
Let Ojeleye, Wanamaker and Green go.
Trade Poirier for a 2024 second-round pick (or a 2024 second-round swap). Package our 2020 second-round pick, too, maybe in exchange for a 2022 second-round swap.
Sign E. Turner, I. Thomas, J. Jerebko, and Shelvin Mack (Stevens/Hayward connection via Butler) at the vet minimum.
Convince T. Thompson (or another defensive/rebounding center) to take the MLE to get back at LeBron.
Give Tacko a 3-4 year deal as our fan-favorite 15th man, and an eighth wonder of the world attraction.
