Trade odds: Breaking down which Celtics' players are most likely to be traded

But here is what we know:- The Celtics have 18 players on their roster- 15 of those players have guaranteed deals, while three do not (Keith Bogans, Chris Johnson, Chris Babb)- Not counting Turner or the non-guaranteed guys, the Cs have $71,749,278 in salary...

Report: C’s trying to participate in Love trade, looking for impact player

  The Celtics would love nothing more than to land Kevin Love somehow, but it’s pretty obvious by now that they’re the longest of long shots in the chase.  No matter how highly some of us may value potential trade pieces like Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk, Minnesota just doesn’t see them as the types of players, regardless of the added picks to sweeten the pot, worth...

The Celtics have 18 players, who will make the cut?

Danny does know that you can only have 15 players, right? Of course he knows, but what's he doing with the Celtics roster? He's not setting off fireworks as projected. The minor moves have been questionable, and the plan hasn't been clear this summer. The Celtics have 18 players currently on the roster, with 3 players likely to be cut at camp, if not before camp in late...

Have the Celtics already been eliminated from the 2015 playoffs?

Disclaimer: The off-season is not over.The Celtics could theoretically still pull off a deal for Kevin Love, much like they did with their July 30th trade for KG back in 2007. As Garnett famously said "Anythinggggg is Possibleeeeee". But if we're being honest with ourselves, it's very likely that the Celtics roster we see now is basically the same one that will...

Has Jeff Green hurt the Celtics in trading for a star like Kevin Love?

Jeff Green is more than capable to put up superstar numbers on any given night. When that night is seems to be the question. Green can give you a 41 point game, and the win, but he can also give you nothing in the next few games. Green is in his prime, but his inconsistent career has put a damper on the Celtics. They can't trade him that easily because of it, and they can'...

Celtics Draft Grade 2

Grade:  A-Pick: James YoungThe pick is perfect for the Celtics. He is a long armed lefty, and he can score like it's no one elses business. He is perfect for the Celtics and can play and score right away. It still looks like the Celtics are trying to deal Rondo and maybe Jeff Green, and with Bradley as a restricted free agent, the Celtics have played the first round perfectly.

NBA Trade Rumors: Rajon Rondo, Jeff Green, Kevin Love linked in trade talks

The Boston Celtics are trying hard to trade for Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love in order to not only become a legitimate playoff contender, but also to appease star point guard Rajon Rondo.
