What options do the Boston Celtics have to improve their roster before the Feb. 9 trade deadline arrives? Rumblings in the NBA and local media suggest the Celtics are asking after big men and wings who could come off the bench. But we have to consider what they have in terms of draft assets and tradeable salaries.
Would it make sense to go after one of the bigger names tied to the team, such as San Antonio Spurs big man Jacob Poeltl? Or would it be better to go for a less costly option at the 5? Should the priority be a defensive-oriented wing backup?
To talk through the options in front of Boston before the Feb. 9 decision day arrives, the hosts of the semi-eponymous “Cedric Maxwell” podcast recently dug into answering the above.
To hear what they had to say on the topic, check out the clip embedded above.
