The Boston Celtics are off to a rough start the season holding a 5-4 record. It has them already contemplating a few options on the trade market. According to the CSNNE.com, the front office is hoping to acquire a certain NBA superstar.
“But I’m told the Celtics at this point are only interested in potential “game changers” on the trade market. One name to keep an eye on is New Orleans’ Anthony Davis. The only way Davis will come into play is if Davis wants out, something that isn’t that far-fetched when you consider the steady run of injuries he’s enduring on a team that’s going nowhere fast. The Celtics have draft picks galore, young talent with very team-friendly contracts and being in the East, that would mean the Pelicans would only see Davis twice a season.”
Although the Celtics have spent the first two weeks mostly without the services of Al Horford, there is a realization that they need another superstar to seriously challenge the Cleveland Cavaliers. Boston is one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference, but the Cavaliers are the bar level. It’s has become quite clear that they are heads and shoulders above the rest of the conference.
The addition of Davis would certainly give them the ability to dethrone Cleveland. However, it doesn’t appear that he wants to leave New Orleans at this point in time. If things change in that regard, this could become a likely landing spot.
