Orlando wants to shake things up; Boston rumored to be a trade partner
With no major trades occurring thus far in the 2015-16 NBA season, Orlando is going to attempt to change that according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders.
Magic have kept no secret that they are looking for a major trade. Atlanta, Boston, Milwaukee, Clippers all in the mix.— Steve Kyler (@stevekylerNBA) February 9, 2016
The rumor yesterday was that Orlando was in the market for veteran leadership which is something Boston, Atlanta, or Los Angeles could offer. Boston's obvious vet offer would have to be David Lee, while ATL and LAC are comprised of entirely veterans. However, both the Hawks and the Clippers are in need of the vets they have that would need to be included in any trade with the Magic.
CelticsLife's Max Sandgrund put together a trade case for Tobias Harris that included the Celtics sending Amir Johnson, Jonas Jerebko and the Nets 2018 first-round pick for Tobias Harris and Dewayne Dedmon. With Orlando reportedly itching to make a move, and Boston being in an ever-improving situation with the assets they have, Boston may be able to work out a trade without having to part with package that big.
More on this, and many other, trade options as they develop.
