Jeff Green also likely to be moved in a huge shake-up for the franchise.
It seems the Boston Celtics and the Minnesota Timberwolves are in the same boat this off-season.
Traveling down a river towards a destination where their star player and face of the franchise wants to improve now or he’s walking.
Boston has given interest in signing Minnesota’s Kevin Love to pair with Rajon Rondo as they continue their aggressive rebuilding process.
If that fails, expect the Celtics to completely strip the team down by trading Rondo and Jeff Green in a bid to start from scratch.
“If the Celtics cannot get Love, they are planning to continue with the longer and more methodical rebuilding process, a process that would likely see Rajon Rondo traded. (An NBA source said they would also have a taker for Jeff Green if they chose to move him.),” the Boston Herald said.
“So far, according to a source, they have offered the Nos. 6 and 17 picks in this year’s draft,Kelly Olynyk and one of their own future No. 1 picks. They also own two more first-rounders from the Nets and one from the Clippers after this season, and the Celts are said to be certainly willing to discuss different combinations of their assets.
“But, and this is important to note, they and the Timberwolves had, as of yesterday, yet to engage in anything resembling a true back-and-forth negotiation.”
The Celtics should either get him help or trade him while they can still get compensation. Love is an answer, though not the only one. Armed with draft picks, Boston can deal for immediate help beyond Love.
