Buckley then explained why the two storied rivals would actually agree to such a swap involving their star players.
“It’s possible Brown, 26, never reaches the level of stardom Davis has already hit—hence the inclusion of Williams, a dominant defender with his own injury issues
“Those traits could matter to the Lakers, who might need a sturdier foundation for their post-LeBron James era than the oft-injured Davis can provide.”
Davis would also provide quite an interesting frontcourt pairing with Kristaps Porzingis and Al Horford, though sacrificing Brown in that process would hurt the Celtics scoring along the wing.
While talking about Marcus Smart’s departure, Brad Stevens challenged Brown and Jayson Tatum to step up as leaders with Smart gone during his appearance on “Jones and Mego.”
“We’ve been chock-full of a lot of quality people for a long time, and that gives other people a voice,”
Stevens added that other players on the team may also have to do the same to fill the void that Smart left.
