Many are expecting the Celtics to be buyers leading up to this Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. And why wouldn’t they? Boston currently sits atop the Eastern Conference with an NBA-best 37-16 record. Buying teams don’t typically move pieces off their rotation unless a blockbuster deal is in play. Could that be the case for the Celtics?
According to a new report from Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer, there are teams around the league hoping the Celtics will elect to move such a player. O’Connor wrote on Sunday that “teams have made calls to Boston” regarding trading for forward Grant Williams.
