Smart move considering Rich Paul's threat of a one year rental. It was too risky imo.

At the deadline they were probably still expecting a good chance that Kyrie was going to return. The second they figured Kyrie wasn't going to stick around, it would've been dumb for them to throw in Tatum.

I swear Tatum better develop into a perennial all star to justify Ainge not giving him up for AD or Kawhi lol

Ainge sitting at his desk fapping to his assets has come back to haunt them...you have to convert your chips into a real top tier asset and they have failed to do so.

Ainge found a way to mess up the most lopsided trade in NBA history.

At what point does Ainge realize he actually has to give up a valuable asset in order to get a star player?

Same s*** different day with this front office.

Ainge overthinking here, if this is true, Tatum is not that good of a prospect

I can understand it. AD by all reports did not want to play in Boston. Can’t part with your best asset who is young and cost controller for 5 more seasons for a 1 year rental. Even with AD, Kyrie is headed to Brooklyn so they would probably not even be the favorites in the east.

Plus, Tatum ain't THAT good. Real talk.

They will lose kyrie, I don't think that it's smart to trade their remaining assets for a guy who wants to play in new york or LA.

But yeah, their situation if less than ideal right now, they are average considering the amount of assets that they got from the nets. You could say the same about the sixers if tobias and butler walk away.

You can’t blame them since Kyrie is bailing and AD literally said he wouldn’t resign there.

He regressed first to second year. It’s a horrible sign.

He has a low floor because he is already good... but I have serious doubts as to his long term potential when he doesn’t improve year 1 to 2.

It shouldn’t of even been a question to include him for AD.

Tatum will be a top 10-15 player in the near future. Smart move.
