Marc Gasol to the Celtics, joining Gordon Hayward — NBA trade rumors

Marc Gasol to the Celtics, joining Gordon Hayward — NBA trade rumors

The #Boston Celtics seem to be the center of NBA trade rumors, with possible trade options available the Celtics are looking to build a strong team. "Would Ainge be willing to part with one of his prized forward prospects now that the 27-year-old Hayward is locked in for at least the next three seasons?" According to these executives, Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies could be a player to watch as the market continues to develop in the wake of the draft, numerous trades and free agency. Another potentially great fit for Atlanta, look for the possibility of the Hawks acquiring one or even both of Jae Crowder and Kelly Olynyk as the team continues to take steps forward.

Are talks dormant because Boston and Utah are too far apart on an agreement? Meanwhile, the Pistons get a really good two-way guard and will avoid overpaying Caldwell-Pope right now (a player, albeit a young one, with flaws in his game, issues of consistency and poor efficiency after shooting 39.9 percent last season).

Drafted with the 16th overall pick in 2015, Rozier has spent all 113 games of his NBA career with the Celtics.

Celtics Blog reported that the Boston Celtics have been aggressively trying to create enough salary cap room to give Gordon Hayward the four-year.

The Nuggets would be foolish not to call the Celtics and test the asking prices for these players. Also on the luggage tag is what appears to be 'Melo's final destination: SJD. That's incredible value for an above-average defender who averaged 13.9 points per game last season, and whose intangibles and skill set are coveted by many teams throughout the league.

The Grizzlies did let Zach Randolph walk away and they still have some decisions to make with Tony Allen and JaMychal Green. Of those seemingly likely to be traded is Jae Crowder.

Gasol is not exactly a star at the level of a LeBron James or Kevin Durant, but what he could be is an ideal addition to the Celtics' current roster.

More teams will acquire solid role players and the Celtics will make some moves to open up space.
