The NBA season continues to heat up as all 30 teams are trying to compete for a title. Each team is constantly trying to improve its roster which is why many superstars have been linked in trade rumors. One team which has been frequently involved in NBA trade rumors is the Boston Celtics and the recent rumblings is that the team could make a major trade soon.
The Celtics is one of the up and coming teams in the NBA. Boston was in the playoffs last year, but they could not quite make a deep run against the powerhouse teams in the Eastern Conference. That is one reason why they are rumored to be making a huge trade before long.
Major Trade Coming?
According to NESN, the Celtics are continuing to explore a major trade to help improve their roster. They have a lot of future draft picks and young talent which would surely be very attractive to teams looking to rebuild. There are so many possible trade options though which would really put the Celtics in a very good position.
One possible trade target for the Celtics is big man DeMarcus Cousins from the Sacramento Kings. Boston has been rumored to be interested in Cousins for some time now, although it is not confirmed whether the Kings are looking to move the big man. With the losses piling up for Sacramento though it appears that moving Boogie would be one scenario the team will be exploring.
The Best in the East?
The addition of Cousins to the Celtics would instantly propel the team as one of the best in the Eastern Conference. With All-stars Isaiah Thomas and Al Horford already on the roster, Cousins would make Boston favorites in the East.
