There’s been no shortage of rumors as of late surrounding the Boston Celtics and the No. 3 pick.
On Monday, Gary Tanguay and Tim Welsh reported that talks between the 76ers and C’s were ‘heating up’ because of the Sixers’ interest in point guard Kris Dunn.
But now it appears Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor aren’t Trader Danny’s only targets.
According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Celtics have been unsuccessful trying to acquire Jimmy Butler, Gordon Hayward, Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton.
