Should the Celtics trade their picks for stars?

The Boston Celtics are probably in the best position of any NBA team right now. However they might also be in one of the worst positions in the NBA (besides the Nets of course). Now this might sound strange to you but the reasoning of this is pretty obvious. Everybody knows how the Celtics situation is going, the Celtics are arguably the second best team in the east, however they are nowhere near being able to beat the Cavs. On the other hand the Celtics have last years 3rd overall pick Jaylen Brown who looks like he can become a good player. Not only that the Celtics also have the next 2 Brooklyn picks which will probably top 5 picks and might even be top 3 picks. Now why is this bad? The way the Celtics are build up right now they are not contenders to win the finals this year and in the next few years as well, okay so the Celtics will just compete in 5 years with the picks right?

So what should the Celtics do? Well there are 3 options. Do nothing, keep exactly what you have and probably not win a championship in the next 10 years.  Trade the picks for stars and try to compete right now. Go in rebuilding mode, and try to compete in a few years. So option 1 might not be the best,...

Miami is still in playoff contention and with the trade deadline coming up quick, fast, and in a Ibaka is in the last year of his contract and is making about 12 million dollars this season. If you can make sure Ibaka resigns with the Heat it might be a good deal but if not you are giving something up for a few month loaner. Even though he might help getting the Heat to the playoffs, what would the Heat be willing to give up?...
