Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown to Washington for: Bradley Beal and Markieff Morris.

Why for Boston: Boston gets to pair Irving with a bonafide all-star caliber shooting guard. Tatum gets to slide to his natural small forward position. Boston gets out of Hayward's albatross contract.

Why for Washington: They need to blow it up. Brown is a nice, young building block for them. Hayward, while massively overpaid, seems to be a nice enough locker room guy on a tanking team. After this, Washington would trade Wall for another nice young player and perhaps lottery picks.

if Wash is tanking why would they trade for GH's "albatross contract"?

Because they are trading Beal and Wall. Even bad teams need to pay someone. After getting rid of Wall and Beal, they would be under the cap, even with Hayward.

Imagine how abysmal the backcourt D would be if we traded both Brown and Smart
Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

Talk is cheap, but selling Gordan Hayward for pennies on the dollar is reacting in panic mode. We have no choice but to keep him and hope he can get back to top form.

I'm fine parting with Rozier and Brown. Rozier is too involved with his alter ego and "Scary Terry" persona.
Terry is a tweener, few point guard skills, and too undersized and inconsistent for a starting shooting guard job.

Brown is not going to turn out to be what many think. And if he does eventually find himself it will take years.

Bradley Beal would be a nice addition, but I'm not sure Washington is willing to take Hayward, who still doesn't look fully healthy, in exchange for adding Brown when Beal is already a better player than Brown.

Pre-injury Hayward is being underrated big time, rather take a chance he gets closer to what he was

I think Washington would take on Hayward's salary because Hayward would help contribute to the tanking effort Washington needs for the next two to three years. By the time Washington's tank is over, Hayward will be a free agent again. They will have amassed several top five lottery picks in this time.

You are not selling him for pennies on the dollar. Beal is a better player and always has been.

I think we are in position of nothing but wait until this team starts playing. They are all very good to great players and they all proved it already. Stevens is the guy that needs to find the chemistry between them. It's definitively the hardest moment in his young coaching career so far.
