The Boston Celtics are in a bit of a rare spot as the NBA Trade Deadline approaches. Normally teams high in the standings (and nobody is higher than the Celtics and their NBA-best 38-16 record) aren’t looking to move contributing players. However, the Celtics are so deep they have the luxury of exploring that opportunity.
According to a new report, that’s exactly what they’re doing. Yahoo’s Jake Fischer tweeted on Wednesday that “Boston has been exploring the combined outgoing value of Danilo Gallinari and Payton Pritchard, sources said, as the Celtics search for center reinforcements.”
