Agreed.  My biggest fear is that we stunt their growth thru lesser roles next season.

I have started to wonder about how things work next year as well. 


Simple:  Irving-Brown-Hayward-Tatum-Horford

They are going to play small like GS.  Tatum will add some bulk in the offseason but honestly there are few 3/4s in the league I would be worried about taking him the post.  If they keep Baynes or have another 5, he will be situational.

Nothing to worry about.

Players I would trade both Brown and Tatum for:

1. Kevin Durant
2. Anthony Davis
3. Greek Freak
4. James Harden

Players I would trade just one of EITHER player for:

1. Karl Anthony Towns
2. Joel Embiid

Players who don't make sense at all to trade for because of age/position

1. Lebron
2. Curry
3. Westbrook
4. CP3
5. Wall

Players I would trade Brown for but NOT Tatum:

1. Kawhi
2. DeRozan
3. Jimmy Butler
4. Paul George
5. Boogie
6. Porzingis
7. Rudy Gobert

Tough to crunch so many scenarios, especially factoring the contract variable. Tatum is definitely the more "untradeable" in that he is far more consistent and his scoring range is far more polished. Tatum's ceiling is Durant, and I think he has a decent chance of reaching it. Brown reminds me of a young Kobe. Same athleticism, but the obvious moments where he hasn't grown in to his body so to speak. I think he is far more consistent than Bryant was in a young age, and Brown's defense at a young age is superior. I just think it is more likely for Tatum to reach his full potential compared to Brown.

Both players are very coachable though, and have bought in to Brad Stevens system 100%, so the sky is the limit for both of them. Their egos are in check, which is not typical of a young player with so much talent.....(see Ben Simmons).

To say they are "untradeable" is ridiculous, but for any of the players mentioned above to come available in a scenario where the Celtics are trade partners, to me, is highly unrealistic.



No offense, but I'm glad you're not GM.

I wish those threads weren't scrubbed out in the Great Purge.  Would love to go back and read though peoples' thoughts about that trade.   I certainly remember a contingent being anti-trade.
Oh yeah, the purge eliminated a lot of good reading.

I was just a lurker back then though, so I can't claim I had any special foresight. I was just excited that KG was coming. Heck I think the first KG trade rumors (that he killed pre-draft) are how I found CBlog.

I thought the 'newest' forum was created at the very end of 2006. I remember it taking me a couple of weeks to re-create my profile (mine says Jan 12, 2007), but all of the old stuff before the KG trade should still be there.

On a related note, I am glad this version of the forum has lasted so long. I remember three versions before this one officially took over. And, while it's been a little iffy with 'connection problems' the last couple of years, it is nice to have so many years of posts chronicled.

The 4 players mentioned in the Brown+Tatum trades get us INSTANT hang-ups from those front offices with the offers. You are looney-tunes to think otherwise.

I wouldn't trade them for anyone.

Mark this thread. In 5 years from now, you're going to look very, very looney-tunes.
these are the same people who wanted us to trade the #3 2016 draft pick for nerlens Noel

Or straight up for Okafor.

Or Greg Monroe  :D (sorry, Moose!)

Amazing.

How crazy would it be to clinch the first seat at the finals, then watch GS and Houston battle it out?
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

As someone posted tonight on Twitter - next season the Celtics are looking at an end of game lineup of Kyrie, Hayward, Horford, Brown and Tatum.  Try guarding that.....

Yeah, why would you trade players this young and this good already?  We have two stars on rookie deals.   You don't trade that.

That "someone" didn't just make that up.  Most of us have been salivating about this lineup for months.  Thing is, Brown and Tatum are going to be even better next season.  Let that sink in!

The list of players I would give up one of these guys for is very small right now. Like, 2 people. That's it. And even then I wouldn't like it.
1957, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1968, 1969, 1974, 1976, 1981, 1984, 1986, 2008, 2019
