Who does not agree to this four-team trade:
To Boston (needs superstar):
To Detroit (needs PG, has cap space):
To Oklahoma (Blake is from OKC, so will sell tickets):
To Houston (obviously rebuilding, so this is our ticket to a superstar, but it will cost to get Harden and cost some extra to absorb Big Al):
2021 BOS 1st
2022 OKC-PHX 1st (Top 10 protection)
2023 BOS 1st
2023 DET 1st (Top 3 protection)
2025 BOS 1st (Top 3 protection)
2021 BOS 2nd
2022 BOS 2nd
2025 BOS 2nd

Everybody gets what they want, right?
Harden running point with Smart covering his defensive deficiencies would give us the best yin-and-yang back court in the league. Weíve already got one of the best, if not the best, wing combos in Brown and Tatum. Now with TT, weíve got that defensive big-man to get the rebounds, and Theis as relief. Really think this move, in combination with a couple ring-chasing vets, could get us the next title and maybe 2-3 titles in the next 4-5 years.
