The Boston Celtics will be a team to watch before Thursday’s NBA trade deadline.
Team president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has a lot of assets to dangle in the trade market, including several first-round draft picks, expiring contracts and talented young players.
The most likely player to be moved remains Brandon Bass, while moving Jeff Green could be a bit more tricky. Veteran forward Gerald Wallace makes a bit more than Green over the next two seasons, and will be even harder to for Ainge to move before Thursday.
NESN.com NBA/Celtics editor Ben Watanabe and assistant editor Nicholas Goss sat down to discuss these topics and some of the Celtics’ other options at the deadline. They also touched on non-Celtics players around the league who could be dealt and finished off with a pair of deals they think absolutely should happen.
