Though it may seem like a “dream scenario”, the idea of the Boston Celtics landing both Ben Simmons and Myles Turner is VERY much a real possibility.

Despite the fact that the Boston Celtics made it to their third Eastern Conference Finals appearance in four seasons it’s apparent that they must find a way to get even better than they currently are if they wish to get over the hump and advance to their first NBA Finals since the 2009-10 season.

An odd statement to make, as we’ve seen the C’s core from 2019-20 ranked highly amongst the best in the league, but with their latest postseason performance, it’s evident that changes must be made for them to have a legitimate chance of attaining banner No. 18 before the likes of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Already rostering two All-Stars in Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum, a budding star in Jaylen Brown, the former All-Star in Gordon Hayward, and the Swiss-Army man in Marcus Smart a reasonable question one may ask is “how on earth can we get any better?”

Well folks, being that it’s the offseason we here at the Houdini have devoted ample time into thinking up ways to answer such a question. Recently, we came up with a blockbuster deal involving the shamrocks upgrading at both point guard and center.

The idea: trade for both Ben Simmons and Myles Turner.

Executing such a plan is, obviously, one that will take a lot of maneuvering and moving pieces, but we’ve concocted a perfect plan to accomplish said goal that, in the end, leaves all 3 teams involved satisfied.
