For the second year in a row, the Celtics snagged one of the top three free agents on the market with signing Gordon Hayward. Yet, many analysts still feel like they’re hunting another player for Boston Celtics.
Celtics hints that they could trade for Marc Gasol, as the Grizzlies’ future is in flux. According to a source,
''The trade market for stars has momentarily dried up. One player worth keeping an eye on, two league executives told The Vertical: Memphis' Marc Gasol. The Grizzlies lost Zach Randolph, Tony Allen could be next out the door, and if you were filling out your Western Conference playoff bracket today, Memphis probably wouldn't be in it. Would the Grizz move the 32-year-old Gasol for a ready-made rebuilding package of players and picks? Would Boston - which has to be wary of putting together a team that would beat Cleveland but still get pulverized by Golden State - be interested? Again, worth watching.''
Memphis just re-signed Mike Conley to a monster deal, Marc is still one of the best players around, and even in a strengthened West the Grizz will be competitive.
