When it comes to NBA trade rumors, it seems the Boston Celtics is the team to beat. They are always figuring in these rumors because of Al Horford's injury. When he returned, the team was able to perform better. However, that is not their only goal. They also want at least to reach the playoffs in the current season.
Are The Celtics Targeting Three NBA Players?
These NBA trade rumors are now suggesting that the Celtics are eyeing three particular players to help them achieve this objective. These three are Klay Thompson, DeMarcus Cousins, and Paul George. Who among the three the Celtics will acquire will be an interesting story if the trade pushes through.
Thompson could be the man because he is used to supporting a superstar. Currently, he is doing it with two. Perhaps he will not mind playing second to a superstar like Horford. Or it could also be Cousins who is now the most available among the three. But some NBA trade rumors say that the best fit for the Celtics will be Paul George.
He is now on a team that is currently doing a sub-par performance. There are NBA trade rumors that suggest George is not renewing his contract with the Pacers. Some say that he does not agree with the general direction his team is going. If the Celtics are really looking for great talents to support of Horford, George may be it.
The Orlando Magic Is Looking For Good Scorers
An ESPN report also indicated that the Orlando Magic is out looking for some good scorers in the league. In this scenario, Nick Silva commented on the possibility that Nikola Vucevic could be traded by the team. "There has been some speculation over the past 12 months that Magic center Nikola Vucevic might be made available," said Silva. "... and the rumors could surface again since head coach Frank Vogel recently benched Vucevic and moved Biyombo into the starting lineup," he added.
