Rozier, Brown, Baynes, Yabusele/Ojeleye for Beal and Howard.

You get a deadly backcourt duo of Irving and Beal. An interior presence in Howard is huge, getting rebounds and post-scoring. Slide Al Horford to the 4. Tatum takes the 3 and Hayward comes off the bench as a sixth man.

Basically Orlando Magic 2009 but far superior to it.

Not a bad idea but the salaries just don't match. You'd HAVE to trade Smart and his 11-12M to make it work (though in that case you'd also keep Rozier I imagine as long as the rest of the trade remains the same).

I mean losing Smart AND Rozier does hurt out guard depth too in that case even with Beal coming back in the proposed trade.

Likewise, a team that is getting fairly limited production out of their bigs could get an upgrade from Howard. Otherwise you got to hope Williams can help and Horford starts playing better consistently ASAP.

He didn’t play until 11/2. Sore back, missed training camp preseason and first seven games fwiw
Slow start isn’t really his fault

I'm not on board with trading for Dwight, but if we are talking a ___+Brown+Rozier for Beal+Dwight package I think Horford would be the better option than Smart.  Losing both Smart and Brown would be too detrimental to the Celtics' wing D, and a healthy Gordie should be able to fill Horford's role as an unselfish veteran presence who can be a secondary facilitator.

I can't see Danny shipping Horford out though
