Would Naji Marshall make sense for the Boston Celtics to target in a trade?

The Boston Celtics are among many teams looking to get better at the NBA’s 2024 trade deadline, and names are starting to be floated by fans of the team and analysts of prospective trade additions for the Celtics. One of the more popular such proposals is the idea of Boston going after New Orleans Pelicans small forward Naji Marshall.

The 25-year-old Xavier alum is putting up 7.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game with the Pels this season while shooting 50.4% from the field, 38.3% from beyond the arc, and 82.5% from the free throw line in 18.5 minutes per game.

The Atlantic City native is earning just $1.9 million this season on an expiring deal, and would likely require a significant outlay of draft assets given his production on that contract.

The hosts of the CLNS Media “How Bout Them Celtics!” podcast took a closer look at how such a pursuit might go down. Check it out above!
