so this hilarious clippers proposal targeting KAT for a package centered around blake got me thinking in a different direction...
if AD really is untouchable (for the sake of discussion) should the celtics move on to KAT as their next target? (assuming he isn't out of play like we are saying AD is)
depending on who u ask, KAT has potential to be better than AD, so you would think what the c's would offer would be similar...
also, KAT is still on his rookie scale contract thru next season, so u don't have to include big money (horford) to match salaries like with AD.
lets say they get the lakers pick, offer brown but leave wiggle room to upgrade that to tatum if the wolves hesitate, anything else from either side for salary matching would be arbitrary...
am i on to anything?

KAT seems like one of the least likely players in the NBA to get moved. He's on a good young team, still on a
rookie scale, is Minnesota's only starting caliber center, is controlled for likely 5 more years, Minnesota has other young valuable pieces to swing trades with like Eiggind and he has already proven to be a star in the NBA. Tatum has been a high level 3 and D player that has the potential to be a lot more, but KAT has already flashed MVP potential in his career. I think the most likely younger allstar Big to come available would be Gobert.

@rkenne sure, everything u said makes sense. but i'm asking u to accept my hypothetical scenario and evaluate therein.
i agree that KAT should be, as probably is off limits, but we throw AD’s name around in trades like its nothing, so what is the real difference?
so ill put it this way, if minn were to entertain offers for KAT, what would it have to be from boston? u can't tell me the lakers pick if it lands top 5 isn't worth considering, there are 3 or 4 players in this draft that could end up as top 10 guys in the whole league. u attach brown or tatum to that and you have an offer just about any team would have to consider for its best young player.

Only with McHale as GM :-) :-) :-)

KAT in a Boston uniform would be awesome. But this could only happen when he would be unhappy in Minny

Tatum+Rozier+ 1rnd pick LA+ 1rnd pick Boston 2018 and 2020+ 1rnd pick Memphis 2019
I could see this package work, if the LA pick could bring Ayton to Minny (and maybe Young)

Agree with Gasupo. If they were open to moving him it would take a huge package. Tatum and LA pick alone wouldn't do it.
