What if we traded Marcus Smart, Al Harford, the Lakers pick, and 3 other first round picks for AD, like our own in 2018 and the two highest of ours and the conditionals in 2019? I think both teams would seriously consider it. It gives the pelicans a good young player in smart, an all star, and the peices to build around in the future. For us, we get a starting lineup of next year of Irving, brown, Hayward, Tatum , and Davis. Our bench still includes Rozier, bathes, Morris, semi, and Theis. Why not?

Giving up Horford would be terrible in terms of what prospective FA's would think of us, I think. It's also a lot of picks to give up for a somewhat injury prone guy in AD.

Hard to say no, but it would definitely have serious repercussions

There are just too many negatives to trade for AD. His cost is just too high.
Mock "trade deadline" team: Blazers.
PG-Lillard, Napier, Baldwin
SG-McCollum, Connaughton, Wilcox
SF-Fournier, Harkless, Layman
PF-Aminu, Davis
C- Nurkic, Leonard, Collins

Iím thinking this more as well.  Keep Horford and fingers crossed groom Ayton or Bagley maybe Bamba, but I really like Doncic too. Lol

Agreed. Let another team overpay and gut their assets.

Harsh! 😉

To beat other teams offers we would probably have to give up Tatum/Brown or both. Plus the Lakers pick, plus Memphis/our own. The question is- does our big four with AD Trump GS, and is that a window of opportunity that you are comfortable with?
Truuuuuuuuuth!

The assumption that AD would want to play in Boston is an empty one.

Danny will never include Tatum in a trade for AD.

Nor should he.

Any Davis talks start with Tatum + Brown + Lakers pick.

I  like Davis, but Brown,Tatum and if that Lakers pick falls could be better going forward than Davis. Browns becoming a really good 3 and D guy who can really run the floor. Tatum is becoming a really good all around player at 19, and has shown the clutch gene. And there are some bigs that by the time Horford is done with his first contract they will be ready, and who better to teach them how to play the big position than Horford.

If it was Brown OR Tatum and LA pick then you consider it, but I think Tatum is becoming off limits even to Davis. Just the way the NBA is shaping, you win with wings and swings.

Whoever trades Brown or Tatum does not know anything about basketball

AD was a nice thought when we had picks, now that we see the potential in the players we drafted there is no need to trade for AD.  Letís role with our team for the next 5+ years (plus who we draft with the Lakers pick) and trade players when they start the decline to Brooklyn for more picks and just keep this going until Brad is 70.
