The Boston Celtics find themselves rolling during the infancy stage of the 2022-23 campaign, as they’re currently on a nine-game winning streak and sport the best record in the association at 13-3.

That said, even with this, the team could certainly benefit from partaking in some shakeups to their arsenal to help better position themselves for a late-season run of achieving the ultimate goal of winning an NBA championship, and, according to an anonymous league executive, there’s one player that could be a beneficial target for the club to pursue via trade this season.

In a recent sit-down with Heavy Sports’ NBA Insider Sean Deveney, a Western Conference exec discussed the idea of seeing the Golden State Warriors shop star power forward Draymond Green and, though they stated that such an event is unlikely, should it ever happen the Celtics are among the list of ideal landing spot for him.

However, any contending team like Boston could always use some title-winning experience within their foundation, and Green, a four-time NBA champion, certainly has that in his bag.

Celtics Interested in Frontcourt Help

On top of his championship pedigree, Draymond Green could also help address the desire to fill out the frontcourt depth for the Boston Celtics.

According to recent reports by ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, many have speculated that the C’s are interested in shoring up their big man rotation, particularly at the pivot what with the absence of oft-injured Robert Williams III as he continues to rehabilitate from offseason …read more
