Celtics targeting Blake Griffin in huge trade


The Boston Celtics have already been busy this offseason after they added former Atlanta Hawks forward Al Horford in free agency. Now it looks like they are going after another big man in Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin.

Sean Deveney of Sporting News reports that the Celtics, who have been reportedly interested in Griffin since last season, are trying to work on a three-team deal that would send Sacramento Kings guard Rudy Gay to Los Angeles. The Celtics would land the 27-year-old forward, but would give up a number of draft picks in the process.

Despite the Celtics likely having to give up a number of draft picks, their front office is not willing to give up either pick they have from the Brooklyn Nets in the next two years. Boston is still receiving the Nets’ end of the deal that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce there in 2013.

The Celtics are set to make a big deal soon and it could be for Blake Griffin, who averaged 21.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, 4.9 assists, and 0.8 steals on 49.9 percent shooting in 35 games last year. If that doesn’t work out, they are also looking to possibly pick up Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook.

Whatever happens, the Boston Celtics certainly seem like a team that is looking to make a big push towards competing in the Eastern Conference.
