The idea that we could trade for Al Horford seems a bit too hopeful as he is one of the better big men in the L. But it might not be waaaaay far fetched.
A team led by Al Horford probably isn't a playoff team, nor bad enough to compete for a high draft pick. A trade could land them a few assets and the chance at a high pick.
Could we get a deal done? Wes (to a third team for a pick and/or younger players), Freeland, Leonard, Barton, #10, and 2nd rounders for Horford.
I am not a fan of trading Wes and we give up basically all of our upside pieces. But of course if you want a bordeline All-Star center, you have to make sacrifices.
We would need to find a starting two in free agency for sure. The great thing about this trade, it would give us a major piece without taking a huge chunk of our cap-space.
No better trade offers for Horford jump to mind, though maybe there would be.
