Kyle Lowry is on the Boston Celtics' growing wishlist of players to trade for before the February 21 trade deadline. The Toronto Raptors point guard's name was floated within a few hours of Rajon Rondo's season ending to an ACL tear.
ESPN's Marc Stein reported that the Celtics are more likely to chase Lowry than Rudy Gay. The question remains whether the Celts have the assets to get Lowry -- and if Toronto is ready to dump Lowry.

So it’s premature, to me, to throw Pierce’s name up there with Rudy Gay and Pau Gasol on the list of high-profile names available this trade season, even though we’ve heard more than one rival team speculate — given that the Celtics and Grizzlies, sources say, have indeed held some exploratory trade talks since Gay hit the market — that a three-way deal where Pierce lands...
