Celtics expected to make minor trade prior to deadline

According to the Adam Himmelsbach and the Boston Globe “One league source said it would be a surprise if the Celtics do not complete a minor move, but it most likely would be to add a player as insurance in case of future injuries rather than to alter the current rotation.”

So we're talking more of a trade similar to the Mike Muscala one from last season. Another big in case Horford or Porzingis miss playoff games.

In addition to Andre Drummond, Kelly Olynyk, and Delon Wright, other names that have come up in rumprs include the Rockets' Jae'Sean Tate and the Hornets' Nick Richards.

The NBA Trade Deadline is this Thursday at 3 p.m. (EST).
