One Eastern Conference team they can certainly use a shake up at the NBA trade deadline is the Boston Celtics. They are again one of the top teams in the conference but are underachieving early on. That could change if they add either some more depth or another superstar moving forward.
Both Jason Tatum and Jaylen Brown are scoring at a high clip this season with around 26 points per game. After the dynamic duo, the Celtics have lacked that other presence.
The depth has let them down which is something they could improve on moving forward, especially at the point guard position. Kemba Walker has been featured in NBA trade rumors since the offseason and could finally be on the move in a package like this one.
The Washington Wizards are certainly a team that should sell at the deadline. They sent John Wall to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Russell Westbrook in the offseason. Bradley Beal apparently wants to stay in Washington but it would make sense for the franchise to get a huge return for their star.
With the Wizards trending upward lately, it may be best for the Wizards to capitalize on their recent success to find a trade suitor for Westbrook. Washington doesn’t necessarily have to make a move since there is reason for optimism, but selling high could be an option, too.
That is exactly what could happen if he is sent to Boston. This would be a blockbuster trade that impacts both sides right away. Let’s take a look at what a potential deal could look like.
