(CTN News) – The Boston Celtics NBA Trade Deadline is here! There will be approximately 1,045 rumors regarding NBA trades, but only about 15-20 will be implemented, most of which will take place within the last hour.
Xavier Tillman was acquired by the Boston Celtics within a short period of time (more analysis on that to follow). As well, they still have the Grant Williams TPE to utilize before it disappears (once the 2nd apron rules take effect this offseason, they will no longer be able to use TPEs).
I believe Tillman is already a better player than the types of players I expected to hear the Celtics acquire. As a result, anything that happens today is gravy. Brad will, however, carry that growth mentality into the workplace. Getting singles and doubles all over the field.
This would be a good place to promote our blog sections. For instance, there is a section dedicated to Celtics trade rumors. This will make it easier for you to keep up with the latest news.
Lastly, I would like to point out the Trade Deadline Primer article that our own Michael Scooner authored a couple of weeks ago.
The Celtics even considered Tillman as a big man option.
Outside of Boston, some interesting deals are sure to happen. In my next plug, I’ll mention SBNation’s Trade Deadline Stream. Dejounte Murray, DeMar DeRozan, D’Angelo Russell, Kelly Olynyk, Malcolm Brogdon, and Kyle Kuzma are likely to find new teams? Is there a likelihood of buyers?
How soon will the Sixers make a move or how long will they wait? What is the current situation with the Bulls? We will respond as soon as possible.
For us, every action is analyzed from the perspective of “what does this mean for the Celtics?”. What matters most is that, right? CelticsBlog keeps you updated all day long. Feel free to comment. Good luck on deadline!
