Even after the addition of Gerald Green and the re-signing of Tyler Zeller, the Celtics are still hoping for more:
Per source, the Celtics are still aggressively trying to make trades. Today's agreements do not mean that they're done for the summer.— Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) July 23, 2016
As for a potential trade with the 76ers for Jahlil Okafor, Boston reportedly isn't that interested in making it happen--unless the big man can be had cheap. From Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer:
Word out of Boston is that the Celtics will not give up much for the 6-foot-11, 257-pounder.
They have concerns about his playing in the city after being involved in two street fights there in the early hours of Thanksgiving morning. Nor do they like the fact that the center saw a gun pointed at his head in Old City and that he was stopped for going 108 mph over the Ben Franklin Bridge.
At this point it seems clear the C's won't part with any of their more valuable assets for Okafor. Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald suggests there's nothing brewing:
It's possible the Celtics and Philadelphia could revisit talks for Jahlil Okafor, but, according to sources, those talks appear to have grown "stale."
If I'm Danny Ainge, my best offer is probably something like Kelly Olynyk, Terry Rozier and James Young, but there's no way Philly is biting.
