That the Boston Celtics may be on the hunt to add a third star to their core of All-Star forwards Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum is perhaps one of the worst-kept secrets in the wider NBA world.

Sure, there is absolutely a chance that the team could find that third star internally (Robert Williams III, we are looking at you) down the road, but if the right deal opens up for a surer thing than rolling the dice on internal development presents itself. That being said, there is a limited pool of potential targets who would make sense, and fewer still likely to be available.

On a recent episode of the “Celtics Lab” podcast, the trio of hosts spent a fair amount of time trying to construct even vaguely plausible superteams, and fount it quite the challenge.
