Ok so currently the Celtics are in tons of trade talks apparently and seem to be close to trading the number 1 pick. To beat the Warriors, obviously you need a superteam, and we actually aren't as far away as one might think. Here are three steps we have to accomplish in order to build a Celtics superteam with a big 3 of IT, Butler, and Griffin.
1. Assure with the Bulls that you have a deal for butler assuming you complete the trade with the sixers. Then trade the first pick for the third pick, Robert Covington, and jahlil okafor. Finish this step by flipping everything you received in the sixers trade And Jae crowder for butler. Effectively, you trade the #1 pick and crowder for Butler, but the Bulls get what they want from the sixers indirectly
2. You sign 1 of the 2 big free agents you're going after this offseason (Griffin or Hayward), ideally Griffin so you have rebounding presence.
3. You still have the nets 2018 pick, they aren't getting any better. Land a top 3 pick, hopefully number 1, and draft Porter/Ayton/Ball. Resign Isaiah Thomas too.
Celtics Roster for the 2018-19 Season: Thomas, Bradley, Butler, Griffin, Horford, Porter/Ayton/Ball, Brown, Smart. Rozier, etc.
Seems crazy but would be awesome.
