The Boston Celtics have been terrible this season and need some major changes if they want to turn around their fortunes in 2015. And it seems they could be ready to make a major trade in the near future.
No names have been mentioned as of yet, though general manager Danny Ainge suggested that a deal for an All-Star player could be a possibility, but the draft will play a part in what happens.
"Ainge on a dealing for an All-Star: 'That’s possible. We’ll certainly look into that. So much depends upon where we end up in the draft.”
If the Celtics find themselves with the first or second overall pick it’s unlikely they’d be too keen for a trade, however if they do fall in the Lottery a deal looks more possible.
It’s nothing more than speculation at this point, though it appears as if the Celtics are open to making a big move during the offseason to bring in name talent.
Ainge added that he’s looking to ‘make fireworks’ though suggested that the deal has to be good for the Celtics and that he’s not just looking to ‘make a move’.
