NBA Rumors: Celtics Could Acquire Lauri Markkanen For Romeo Langford, Grant Williams, Aaron Nesmith & Pick

With their inability to compete for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, there are speculations that Markkanen could soon find his way out of Chicago if the direction of the organization remains unchanged. He may be expected to start the 2020-21 NBA season as a Bull but if they struggle early, he could demand to be moved before the 2021 trade deadline. One of the teams that could try to save Markkanen from the Bulls is the...

No. 14 overall pick Aaron Nesmith has the chance to be a knock-down, off-the-bench shooter the C’s have lacked in recent seasons. Boston’s next pick, however, wasn’t exactly a no-brainer. The Celtics selected Payton Pritchard, a senior out of Oregon, at No. […] The post Why NBA Analyst Believes Payton Pritchard Will Exceed Expectations As Celtics Rookie appeared first on NESN.com.
