Whoa, somehow I missed this particular impact of being over the second apron. It seems like a massive consideration.I've always been a big Jaylen fan, but man that last series was brutal. Celtics Blog does a good job outlining the case (mostly financial) for trading him, with some decent sounding possible trades. Bridges would be an excellent replacement.
If the Celtics exceed the second apron in two of four years, their first-rounder seven years out is moved to the end of the first round, regardless of record. This creates the possibility where the Celtics spend now and pay for it dearly later if Tatum were to leave. It creates massive risk regarding an important future asset.
