Carsen Edwards, the 24th pick, the 30th pick, one of our 3 second rounders to ORL for the 15th overall pick

We'd get value alone from that consolidating our roster issue.

Then we could use the 15th and 17th pick to take swings on bigs.

And our playable rotation would be

Kemba/Smart
Brown/Langford
Hayward/ someone
Tatum/ pick?/ G will
Theis/ pick? / Maybe Timelord stays healthy and steps it up

But I mean even for ORL that's pretty dumb. But that's like... as I was looking at it our best hope for a dumb team to let us consolidate our assets.

That's a kind of deal I'd look for too. Doubt you get into the lottery, but some team after that could want to get more bites at the apple. I wonder if DAL or POR would be interested in something like that. Both in that same range and they could probably conceivably use some extra picks/young guys to fill in roster spots. Maybe even the Bucks with the Pacers pick, but keep Carsen or the 2nd since you're not jumping that many spots at that point.

As of this date (07-29-20), after the 3 Scrimmages, and before the "Seeding" games.
I'm not so sure that Edwards & Poirier have earned a spot next season.

One of Semi, Green and Wanamaker, may still be a Celtic, though.
I also see us making some type of Trades, while still staying young.


Proposed Rotation, 2020-21:
Kemba - Brown - Tatum - (????) - Theis
Smart - Langford - G.Williams - R.Williams/Kanter
Waters - (Rookie) - Edwards? - Poirier? - Fall

Maine Red Claws = (Rookie), (Rookie)


P.S.:
I also think that it's time to increase the number of Two-Way contracts.
Smitty once said, that they were looking to go to 5 per team. Once all the teams had a G-League affiliate.

Maybe Danny pulls a rabbit out of his hat like he has in the past via trade. Nothing will make us contenders, that ship has sailed after the Kyrie trade, these past two drafts and given our cap space. But he could keep us entertaining pretenders. It seems the only avenue for that trade is Hayward but I'm not sure the mechanics of that type of trade. Could he be traded should he opt in? Can he do a sign and trade? All I know is if he opts in and stays, we're pretty much running back our current team and it's not good enough. It's flawed with a bottom of the barrel bench full of role players at best.

Looks like at this stage (08-23-20), where Hayward is out injured again, that a lot of people are looking to Trade him at the Draft.

Huh? Can't do that unless he opts in early. Draft day and free agency dates aren't even set yet.

They're set already. -- Draft is Oct 16. Free Agency is Oct. 18.
And yes, Hayward would likely have to Opt-in early. Thus having some say in where he goes.

Nothing is set in stone at the moment. Here's the latest:
Front-office executives are privately concerned about the lack of salary cap and luxury tax projections in place before the Oct. 16 draft. Those projections would allow them to make crucial decisions -- including on possible trades -- with a clearer understanding of the financial ramifications.

Among many teams, there is interest in connecting the mid-October draft and free-agency periods so that they could be delayed together, sources said.

Understood.
In the Trade Thread, people are still proposing Hayward Draft Trades. Whenever they happen.

Oh okay. It's difficult for me to get excited about the offseason with so much uncertainty this year. Players don't know yet what they want to do since the NBA itself is kinda in the dark regarding the near future. But from a financial standpoint, Hayward is the most likely casualty if the Celtics want to tighten their purses due to the pandemic/financial crisis.
