This move does not move the needle for me.
You are basically accelerating a decision on Smart (choosing to get rid of him). I also love what Al does for this team. He is just way too important.
I think we need to accept that this year we will compete as best we can (without Hayward) and next year we'll compete (with Hayward, a top 5 draft pick and potentially Marcus Smart included if he agrees to a reasonable contract).
I do think that Danny might have to combine the assets he has and consolidate. We will have 3 top 5 draft picks (Tatum, Brown, Lakers 2018), 3 perennial all stars (Irving, Hayward, Horford) and a deep bench (Morris, Baynes, Rozier, Yabusele, Theis, Ojeleye). Tatum/Brown/Hayward creates redundancy. The Lakers picks creates redundancy with Horford with the amount of bigs in this draft.
To compete against GSW, we need to be a little more top heavy rather than 12 deep. Makes me think a bigger move might be the way to go. To set our team up to have its 4 headed monster (Tatum being the 4th head to the monster cause no way do we get rid of him) and give them 3-5 years to make it happen.
