Would New York Knicks big man Isaiah Hartenstein make sense as a Boston Celtics trade target? With plenty of talk suggesting the only areas where the Celtics might reasonably make moves on the cheap ahead of the 2023 trade deadline on Feb. 9 are on the wing and in the frontcourt, Hartenstein fits the bill of what Boston might be after.
But will the Knicks’ asking price to bring on the big man to Boston’s roster be too much for the Celtics to swallow? Or has the Oregon native’s role with New York shrunk enough that they would be happy with what Boston can afford to use on a player who may not see much playing time in his new home on most nights?
The hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Beat” podcast got together with ex-ESPN fantasy basketball writer Seth Landman to talk it over.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say.
