So, decide if Tatum and Brown can win you the title NOW or in 2024. And if it's 2024, that's okay! Shoot - OKC is targeting the 2024 playoffs and the 2027* championship.
It matters, because if Tatum/Brown duo can't win right now (I think clearly they can't), then you acquire players that you think will help you win in 2024, not right now. Probably that means you look to target RFA's this offseason, or you re-stock with currency (draft picks) to buy the next player that fits your target.
Boston is just very hard to fix to improve.
High usage players like kemba who play no D just makes no sense I bet he is a negative for the celtics going forward.
They need guys like Haliburton I would give up every asset.
