Draft/trade up to select Zach Edey

An alternative to the LeBron-Bronny mega plan is finding a way to select Purdue's Zach Edey, who figures to garner interest in a draft heavy on heavyweight old-school big men and light on the kind of can't-miss prospects Victor Wembanyama and Paolo Banchero were the past two years.

Edey is projected to land with the Toronto Raptors with the No. 19 pick via the pick acquired in the Pascal Siakam trade, so it may take a move up in the draft. Trading Hauser away doesn't make sense without replacing him on the wing, but packaging draft picks to move up could be an option.

The Celtics could stand to lose Xavier Tillman Sr. and/or Luke Kornet in the offseason and Al Horford may not have much time left after reaching the mountaintop. Frontcourt help should be seen as an immediate need.

Edey is the kind of guy you can invest in with hopes of assuming a starting role someday. Of course, that spot may take a while on the Cs with Kristaps Porzingis and Jayson Tatum being less than 30 years old. But at worst, Edey can be the type of player who builds up his value and help Boston's front office on the trade market down the line.
