: While this trade involves Jaylen and Brown it is in no way intended to be reactionary to their slow shooting start to the season. It's possible to view our roster construction as unsustainable without overreacting to on court production.
The word 'reactionary' gets thrown around so much in these forums I'd argue often times it's the people immediately dismissing every trade idea that are the ones being reactionary.Jaylen Brown - Terry Rozier(Verbal commitment to Re-sign) - Robert Williams III - Possibly a pick or 2
Josh Richardson - Edrice 'Bam' AdebayoWhy for Boston: I'm convinced there's an elite team trapped underneath the Log Jam at the wing and guard.
Switching out Jaylen for Josh Richardson as either the starter or first guard off the bench is a rock solid solidifying play that shores up much of the redundancy between GH/JB/JT. Richardson has emerged as an Elite floor spacing, defensive role player and is on an A+ contract moving forward.
Bam Adebayo is included in the trade to keep the ceiling high. We lose Robert Williams III but gain an elite physical talent who you would hope could enroll in Horford University and one day become our starting 5.
Bam has already showed a strong ability to defend the pick-and-roll and would give us some serious athleticism to match up with some of the freaks that have emerged in both conferences these past couple of seasons.Why for Miami: Reunite the 2016-17 Eastern Conference Finals Celtics
The team already signed Kelly Olynyk, so you're hoping that that he and RWIII help ease the sting of losing Adebayo, but you'd only have to put in 2017 playoff tape of Terry Rozier flying all over the place with Jaylen Brown filling the lanes on fast breaks and to see the kind of potential the new look Miami Squad could have.
Rozier and Brown absolutely seem like Miami guys and would be very helpful to the Heat to draw in future free agents given that they both seem popular among players in the league.
Losing Richardson would hurt but Rodney McGruder has had a strong start to the season and might be ready for a larger role.What do you think?
