With reports circulating that the Cleveland Cavaliers are willing to listen to offers for perennial All-Star Kevin Love, the Houdini has concocted three trades the Boston Celtics could potentially do to acquire the stretch big.
The Boston Celtics are without a doubt one of the hottest team’s the association currently has to offer. They are holders of the second seed in the Eastern Conference with a record of 16-5, and are the winners of five of their last six outings.
Kemba Walker is playing every bit worthy of his $141 million contract, averaging 21.8 points, five assists and 4.8 rebounds a game on 41% shooting from the field and 40% shooting from deep. Youngsters Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are both putting up scoring averages of over 20 points to go along with seven boards and over a steal per game. Gordon Hayward, who is expected to return tonight from his 13-game absence, showed flashes of his Utah Jazz form, averaging 18.9 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists a night on 55% shooting from the field and an impressive 43% from downtown.
Yes, it’s true, the Boston Celtics are dominating in the early stages of the 2019-20 NBA season. However, even with this fact, another persists: they are no where near a perfect unit.
While their backcourt and wing depth is certainly a force to be reckoned with, their front court rotation is still very much a sore spot. One of our favorite things to do here at Hardwood Houdini is to figure out ways of how to help bolster Boston’s front court talent.
And, in honor of tonight’s matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers, we will be discussing ways of how the C’s could potentially acquire their suddenly available big-man, Kevin Love.
