    How about the possibility of adding two max type players next offseason in a manner similar to what the Celtics tried to pull off with George via trade then Hayward via free agency? We’d be in a unique position to offer a team a consolation package for an imminently departing superstar built around Cov (solid player on long-term hopefully good deal), Bayless (expiring contract), picks and/or some young talent in TLC/Holmes/Korkmaz/Saric. Someone like Kyrie Irving perhaps. Then you still have the cap space to go after a max player. Is that feasible in your mind or no? Not specifically Irving, just throwing him out there as an example of the type of player who could end up in that type of situation.
