If Kemba was willing to be a 6th man and occasional starter, trading just Smart and Morris works on trade checker.

We obviously can't meet their requirement of taking on bad contracts without sending them Horford, so that's not happening.

But we do have other expendable assets that may be worth more to CHA than to Boston

Smart, Morris, Yabu, Boston 2018 1st for Walker is a pretty good return for them.

Then Boston uses the DPE on Julius Randle/Monroe to shore up the front court

With the recent slump and obvious shortage of offense off the bench, what is the MOST you would give up for 1 1/2 seasons of Kemba Walker (maybe more if he loves the culture and we find success with him going small ball)? 

Smart, Yabusele, Rozier, Larkin, and a various combination of picks work in the trade checker. 

That is a nice young nucleus for an all-star caliber player who is clearly planning to leave for nothing.  It also guts our logjam at guard and brings back a fourth star, which you need to compete in today's NBA.  Can you imagine 2 PG small ball lineups of:

Walker
Irving
Hayward
Tatum
Horford

That team is basically unguardable, and is loaded with several shot creators.

Jordan said he wants an all star in return, so that pretty much eliminates most teams.  Now I'm sure if a team gave them a bunch of cap relief and some assets or picks, they might soften that all star requirement, but who knows.  That likely eliminates Boston as it isn't trading an all star (or near all star) and can't provide cap relief.

Do you think the Lakers pick gets it done? We could re-sign him and have a big 4 ala the warriors...

I wouldn't give up the Lakers pick for a PG worse than Irving.
