The Jays couldn't manage it--let alone adding in Beal.
I agree that three ball-dominant wings isn't a good plan. Kemba coming in here was *almost* as 'good' as Beal and now we can't wait to get rid of him.
Harden's PG skills makes BRK situation different. None of the guys we have or are talking about have anything close to 'lead-the-league-in-assists' capability.
Nobody is saying just throw Beal/Brown/Tatum together and that's that. Clearly, they would need supporting players around them and out of those supporting players they would need a couple guys that can really facilitate and make those hockey assist type plays....no question
1. I don't think we have the assets to add Beal to the Jays.
2. If we did somehow pull it off, our cupboard would be pretty barren, so I don't know where those 'supporting players' around them would come from -- Semi, Carsen, see if we can bring back Teague?
3. My main point on this is that Tatum plus Jaylen plus Beal is going to equal less than the sum of its parts. They won't make each other better. They will detract from each other, as JB and JT's rises have detracted from Kemba (also, injuries with Kemba, no doubt). If we managed to put that trio together I can guarantee most posters here would be disappointed/undewhelmed with how it turned out ("why aren't these guys making each other better?").
