The Boston Celtics are a team that has been linked to some NBA trade rumors in the offseason and beginning of regular season games. There is a chance that they could look for some help at the point guard position and the Sacramento Kings have an intriguing option.
The Kings have De’Aaron Fox running the offense and he is viewed as their cornerstone player. In the current rebuilding phase they are in, it would be interesting to see the team part ways with Fox in return for some key assets.
Sacramento has been irrelevant for the past few years which means they are heading in a different direction. Will there come a time when De’Aaron Fox grows tired of all the seasons featuring missed playoff appearances? This is where the Celtics could come in with a trade.
Danny Ainge has built the Celtics with plenty of assets. Whether that is prospects or draft picks, this is a team that has plenty to offer. The Kings could benefit from a large return for any of their players.
Boston has watched while the Eastern Conference has improved over time and they know they will need to make some moves to keep up. Fox could be just a player that they are looking for.
It would certainly be a shock to see De’Aaron Fox end up in Boston, or anywhere outside of Sacramento for that matter. He would join Jason Tatum and Jaylen Brown as the back bone of the team. Let’s take a look at what it might take to get this deal done.
