How about this Ayton S&T:

Ayton, Crowder and Craig for Al Horford and Robert Williams.
I think Horford is on an expiring deal, so it is really all of those guys for Williams. I like him, and he is on a great contract, but that seems lopsided in Boston's favor.
If that’s your logic, then it’s just Ayton for Williams since Crowder and Craig are also expiring deals but to your point that would still be lopsided to Boston favor so maybe a couple first round picks from them too? Maybe even Grant Williams? Don’t think Boston would want give him up too tho.

My thinking is Ayton is if is truly done with us then this deal would let us solidify our big man rotation, while keeping us competitive defensively down low, and offensively too. I think we can recreate a lot of the same stuff we did with Ayton but with Horford and Williams doing different duties plus Horford is a good playmaking big too. Since Horford is a big expiring deal, it would still let us be flexible with getting a star at the deadline and now we have a couple more draft picks too from the Celtics to sweeten any deal.

Boston does it because Ayton a clear upgrade over Robert Williams and Hortford is 36 years old with Crowder, you add another solid veteran 3&D wing. I added Craig because I think that makes it work money wise for an Ayton S&T.

So Ayton and Payne and Craig for Williams and Horford.

Then we trade Jae and Shamet to Indy for Brogdon.

CP3/Brogdon
Book/Brogdon
Mikal/???
CamJ/Dario
Williams/Dario/Bismack

We would still need another wing. I am not a big fan of that lineup without any assurances Brogdon and Dario are healthy.

I don't think that's doable. It would put Boston over the hard cap, I believe, because of Ayton only counts for $15 million going out, and 30+ million going in to Boston.

I would happily go into next year with a Booker/Smart backcourt and sign Rubio to come off the bench. Keep DA and ROLL

In the playoffs having the corpse of CP3 won’t solve that conundrum

Andrew Wiggins is a bold-print cautionary tale for Ayton skeptics
The Phoenix Suns should not want to end up like the Minnesota Timberwolves

So don’t include a 1st to dump Ayton for another max contract guy who didn’t deserve it. I agree Ayton and a 1st for Ben Simmons would be stupid
