If KAT becomes available ->

Jaylen Brown + filler or picks for Towns? Who says no?

If Minnesota were to actually entertain this, and I love JB, but if the TWolves were to actually be open to that, it'd be hard to say no.

However, Jaylen is gonna have to continue his upward trajectory if we're gonna get Towns with JUST Jaylen and picks.  If Jaylen flatlines this season, or heaven forbid backslides a bit, Brown and picks I don't think will get it done

Iím starting to believe Brown has the ability to turn himself into a superstar.

We all know heís got elite intelligence and athleticism, now itís just a matter of his desire. Does he want to simply be a max player or does he want MVP votes every season of his prime?

His shooting and defense are already there. If his ballhandling and court-awareness improve, heís gonna be a force.

Thatís not to say he isnít untradable, we know nobody is. But if we are moving Brown, I want Davis.

I take the player with heart and work ethic, I take the two way player, I take Jaylen Brown!

Towns makes $7.8M.  Brown about $5.2M.  Yabusele included would make it work nicely.  Also at issue is Towns becomes a RFA after this season, Brown after next.

I really like Brown.  I think he is going to be a star.  In terms of roster balance, what is a better line up:

Irving-Hayward-Tatum-Horford-Towns
                      or
Irving-Brown-Hayward-Tatum-Horford

Tough call but I probably do it.  Not sure why Minny would though.

Jaylen + SAC pick + whatever for KAT? Yes.

It sounds crazy not to go for KAT, but the more you think about it, the less appealing it gets. I just don't see him as a winner. I see Jaylen as the guy that becomes the kind of fearless, competitive leader you need to go all the way. KAT looks like he just doesn't have that level of competitiveness. He isn't a better defender than he was 2 years ago. For a guy his age with so much on the line, that tells me what I need to know.

I say no.

I'm too attached to Brown, Tatum, and Hayward. I'm pretty attached to Irving and Horford as well.

KAT might be one of the best shooters in the league -- not just for big men. It's ridiculous to think how good he might be with CBS.

I just couldn't do it, especially considering the fact that we are legit contenders right now that pose a difficult matchup for the reigning champs.
Most talent in the league. We don't want or need AD.

The only player from Minnesota in whom we should have any interest, imo, is Justin Patton, so yeah, no, lol. Towns is an awful defensive player and doesn't seem to have that needed fire, so to speak, but I'm weird. :-\

Towns does have NBA quality skills though. In fact, heís a very good rebounder and one of the best scoring big men in the league, and is only 22. Meanwhile Patton hasnít exhibited anything of note

You guys are crazy. Towns is one of the 15 best players on the world 3 years into his career.  He is one of the best offensive players in all of basketball.  His shooting is incredible.  He is an excellent rebounder and credible passer.  His defense needs work but he has the skill level to be at least passable if not better (and I do think the fact he plays with so many poor defenders makes him seem worse than he actually is).  Jaylen Brown if everything goes right will be lucky to be as good as Towns is right now.

All of this. You can make an argument that KAT has had one of the 5 greatest offensive starts to an NBA career of any big man. He has all the tools to become at least effective defensively, while utterly carrying a team offensively. All while being insanely young.

Jaylen Brown is my favorite player in the NBA (favorite, although I believe Tatum has a higher upside) and I would do the deal in a heartbeat.
