NBA teams are constantly trying to improve their rosters as much as possible before the trade deadline, and it appears that the Boston Celtics may have a specific two stars in their agenda.
The Boston Celtics are 8-1 in the eastern conference, and have the best record in the league. It would seem like a ridiculous idea to make trade any of their assets, but what if they could get two superstars?
Here is how this trade would work; The Spurs would receive Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward, Marcus Smart and a future-heavily protected pick (Memphis’ 1st round pick to Boston protected for selections 1-6 in 2020), and the Celtics would receive LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan.
The Celtics are clearly a good enough team this year without a blockbuster trade like this one, but it’s questionable whether or not they could be championship contenders.
With elite stars in Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum, a massive trade like this could significantly upgrade their roster, and would undoubtedly be the favorites to go to the Finals in the eastern conference.
