I'm waiting a year, maybe two, before I start trying to make a trade like that. 1) Not sure if there's a guy even available 2) Boston has dibs on the 1st star on the block, unless we'd massively overpay to beat them.
I think you should factor in the input of said star player who is available. If AD ever becomes available he might want to come back to Chicago and play for his hometown team, or at least would prefer that. Giannis might want to come to Chicago because it's close to Milwaukee and I've heard he actually likes living there for some reason.
Boston can make the better trade offers right now, but those trade assets start depreciating. Like Bos is not getting the Laker's pick this year so that most likely means they're getting the Sac pick next year in a terrible draft class. They could still draft a good player, but I'd rather have a pick in this year's draft if I were the Celtics.
They do have a bunch of future draft picks from other teams. Not sure how great they'll end up being though. Bulls just need to keep accumulating good young players and actually draft players with their 2nd round picks instead of getting those "cash considerations"...
Eh, you're looking at this thru Chicago glasses. Seriously, do you think AD is going to tell New Orleans or Boston he'll only play in Chicago? Come on. That ain't factoring in. What likely does though? Is that he can win a title in Boston. At any rate, he's not going to make a play to be in Chicago. Giannis? Yeah, he likes it in Milwaukee. Because he doesn't want to be in a big city.
Not to mention, we're a long ways away from having the assets the Celtics do, whether they're depreciating or not.
Honestly, its a moot point. We need more youngsters and a bit better idea of EXACTLY what we have, before making any half cocked moves. The end of next season, we'll have a much better idea on what our guys can be.
