The Boston Celtics look to reportedly upgrade their roster as the NBA season is nearing the trade deadline set to take place on March 25.

According to the Ringer’s NBA insider Kevin O’Connor, the Eastern Conference powerhouse is ‘up to something’.

Late Saturday evening, I received a flurry of texts from multiple executives around the league who said the Celtics were up to something. What they’re up to is unclear, but league sources have long said Boston is searching for upgrades to bolster its wing and big man position.

Boston could definitely look to acquire players and add more depth, especially in the wing, after Gordon Hayward signed with the Charlotte Hornets the past offseason.

Furthermore, Connor refers to Tristan Thompson, who becomes trade eligible soon or even Daniel Theis, who is on an expiring $5M deal, as potential trade pieces.

At the same time, the Celtics could also try to lure a ‘bigger fish’, like Bradley Beal, with the amount of young players and draft picks they have at their disposal.
