The NBA season is a 24/7, 365 day-a-year cycle. There is always time for a team to make a move to improve. With this in mind, here are three buy-low options for the Boston Celtics to target in a trade.
The day the Houdini stops trying to improve the Boston Celtics via a trade is going to be a cold day in hell. Given that the season is just a week away and the preseason has concluded, the pressure is on.
The games actually count now.
While Boston seemingly blitzed their opponents during their exhibition schedule, there are things worth worrying about. Daniel Theis proved to be the best two-way big out of a collection of uninspiring options and is the likely starter for the season.
Carsen Edwards proved to be a nice scoring backup point guard, but failed to inspire much confidence in his passing abilities. Under two assists per game, even in the preseason, is not exactly a calming thought.
There are very real issues on this Boston Celtics roster. While the team shouldn’t feel compelled to make a move at the moment, there will more than likely be a time this offseason where Danny Ainge should consider picking up the phone and reaching out to rival general managers.
When that time comes, there will be options around the league that Ainge could attempt to buy low on. Some will address the team’s big-man issues, some will address the team’s lack of an established facilitator on the bench.
Without further ado, here are 3 buy-low candidates for the Boston Celtics should consider targeting.
