What will the NBA trade market be like this year? – Celtics Beat

    Keith Smith previews how the TPE and the wider NBA Playoff format will impact the Celtics chances of making a trade.


    The NBA trade market will be different this year, but that means nothing to Mike Zarren, who is a man that knows numbers. When it comes to final decisions, Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck can trust Celtics GM Danny Ainge with just about anything. Keith Smith joined Celtics Beat this week to discuss how Ainge and the Celtics make trades and what trade rumors could dominate the discussion around the team in a year where Boston owns a trade exception and there will be 20 NBA Playoff teams.
