Recent Report Unveils Celtics’ Strategy Leading Up to NBA Trade Deadline

The Boston Celtics made a minor transaction on Wednesday by adding depth in big man Xavier Tillman from the Memphis Grizzlies.

Now that this trade is completed, along with the Celtics’ constrained financial options, it appears that president of basketball operations Brad Stevens is satisfied with the team’s roster leading up to the NBA trade deadline.

Approximately five hours prior to Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET deadline, NBA insider Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports reported that the Celtics are unlikely to engage in any further transactions.

“Unless there’s an unexpected development, it seems that Boston has concluded its dealings before

Despite the possibility that Stevens may still make a move to acquire another bench player, the relatively calm trade deadline for the Boston Celtics shouldn’t be unexpected. With a strong record of 39-12 and a five-game lead in the Eastern Conference standings, the Celtics weren’t projected to be major participants before the deadline.

Stevens completed most of his significant transactions during the offseason, notably acquiring Kristaps Porzingis and Jrue Holiday, both of whom have been pivotal to the team’s success this season.
