Trade Rumor: Paul George Is On The Celtics Radar, Danny Ainge Pursuing An All-Star
It is no secret that the Celtics are still looking to add another All-Star caliber talent to their roster to speed up any hopes of contending for a championship. With plenty of tradable assets in their possession, Boston could be among the few teams who could pull off blockbuster deal any time before the February 23 trade deadline.
While the Celtics don’t want Anthony, Wojnarowski writes that Anthony has
“privately indicated in interest in listening to trades to those three teams.
Boston’s shown minimal interest in Anthony, preferring to continue its pursuit of persuading Chicago (Jimmy Butler) and Indiana (Paul George) to engage in trade talks that involve two younger, more well-rounded stars."
Paul George has averaged 22.5 points, 6.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists this season, his seventh in the NBA.
