The Damian Lillard trade request has been one of the stories of the 2023 NBA offseason. After 12 seasons with the Trail Blazers, the star point guard would like to move on in pursuit of an NBA championship.
Damian Lillard has informed the Portland Trail Blazers that he would like to be traded to the Miami Heat, but there may be some other contending teams that are hoping the star point guard changes his mind.
Last Thursday, the Celtics, Mavericks, and Spurs agreed on a three-team deal sending Grant Williams to Dallas in a sign-and-trade. Boston is getting two second-round picks from the latter and creating an approximately $6.3 million traded player exception (TPE).
Damian Lillard has made it crystal clear he wants to get traded and only wants to go to the Miami Heat. With that being his mindset, it doesn't matter what other destinations the Trail Blazers ask him about.
Grant Hughes of Bleacher Report believes Boston Celtics stars Jayson Tatum and Kristaps Porzingis are the “weirdest superstar pairing” in the NBA. The Celtics acquired Porzingis from the Washington Wizards in a three-team trade with the Memphis Grizzlies.
In his playing days, Phil Pressey was a high-IQ floor general who overcame being an undrafted five-foot-11 point guard to make it to the NBA. He spent the first two of his three years in the Association with the Celtics, where his head coach was the organization's current president of basketball operations, Brad Stevens.
The Celtics' strengthening their coaching staff included bringing back a familiar face in Sam Cassell. The three-time champion was on the 2008 title team that raised Banner 17 to the rafters above the TD Garden parquet.
The Boston Celtics were among the NBA teams that watched former All-Star guard John Wall work out in Vegas today. The 32 year old point guard played for the Los Angeles Clippers last season before being dealt at the trade deadline.
Jordan Walsh is a very intriguing prospect for the Boston Celtics considering his size and skillset. If he keeps doing what he’s been doing during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, though, he’ll become even more of a fascinating piece for the franchise heading into his rookie season.
At first I thought this video was going to be about how great the addition of Kristaps Porzingis will be, but it was instead about the Celtics' addition by subtraction due to moving on from Marcus Smart.
