The Boston Celtics could look to make some trades this season, and the Houdini believes there to be 3 specific teams they could engage in talks with.
Though it has been hard for the Boston Celtics to literally take steps forward this season, as they’ve already had three games canceled in the past week due to COVID-19 related issues, we here at HH have continued to have our sights set on the future, looking for ways in which the team can better position themselves for a run at glory come the postseason.
Prior to their recent postponements, through 10 games the shamrocks were off to a hot start to 2020-21, boasting a record of 7-3, were in the midst of a four-game winning streak, and, in turn, are currently slotted in the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference standings.
However, though the likes of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have been killing it for the Cs, there are still a few areas on the roster that could use for some extra bolstering.
Because of this, at some point down the road, Danny Ainge could look to add more firepower to the team through various means.
Should they opt to go down the trading route, there are 3 specific teams the Boston Celtics may want to engage in talks with:
Boston Celtics trade partner No. 1) Washington Wizards
When the Washington Wizards traded for Russell Westbrook, many believed the team would be back in the mix for a playoff spot out in the Eastern Conference come the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
11 games in, however, they hold a measly record of 3-8, have their head coach sitting on the hottest of hot seats, and, in turn, the media is now having a field day deciphering what is to come of star Bradley Beal‘s time in the nation’s capital.
Appearing to be on the verge of a fire sale, there are quite a few players that the Celtics could look to acquire in a trade, including guys like Davis Bertans and Beal, both of whom we have discussed the team pursuing on numerous occasions throughout the past year.
