There just seems to be no stopping the links between James Harden and the Boston Celtics. Adrian Wojnarowski continued that narrative Saturday.
James Harden can’t stay on the Houston Rockets. It’s not possible, given all of the tea coming out about how things operate in H-Town. Could the Boston Celtics be the team he ends up on? Adrian Wojnarowski believes they are very much in the trade mix for the max-contract superstar:
“I think there are still several teams talking with Houston about James Harden, Wojnarowski said during Friday’s “NBA Countdown” episode. “And among teams who have had conversations, and even recent conversations, are both Brooklyn and Boston. And I think Houston feels right now that any deal they do for James Harden might need to include a third team. They are out trying to find a great young player that they can bring in as part of a trade. Any deal for Harden may be complex, may involve three, even four teams.”
Danny Ainge doesn’t need to make a move yet. The panic button shouldn’t be slammed after losing a Christmas day homecoming matchup to Kyrie Irving and the Nets.
Speaking of which, Brooklyn doesn’t need to make a move either if their first two games are any indication. Irving and Kevin Durant seem perfectly capable of handling the scoring duties, with Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert being the best third and fourth options outside of Boston.
That said, if the price is right, Harden should be brought on.
