Report: Josh Smith Drawing Interest From Celtics in Trade That Would Send Jeff Green, Brandon Bass to Hawks

Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks - Game TwoIn the past 12 hours, three major trade rumors involving the Celtics have leaked.

First, we saw a proposed trade that would send Rajon Rondo to the Lakers for Dwight Howard. Then Kevin Garnett was rumored to be going to the Clippers for Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan. Now, the Celtics are interested in acquiring Josh Smith from the Hawks for Jeff Green and Brandon Bass, according to Gary Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.

With so many rumors flying around, the Celtics could be active before Thursday’s trade deadline. Boston was expected to be on the move after Rondo and rookie forward Jared Sullinger went down with season-ending injuries. Rondo and Smith are friends from their days together at Oak Hill Academy.

The Hawks forward is averaging 17.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.2 blocks per game. He’s played his entire nine-year career with Atlanta.
