After seeing the Toronto Raptors add Serge Ibaka to their fold, one team that’s expected to also bolster their lineup are the Boston Celtics. They have been linked to some big names in the past few months but nothing has materialized for them yet.
Thomas on trades: "I know if (Ainge) does it, it's going to be a decision to make the team better. But I'm fine with the guys we have now."

The Celtics will look to add a big man that is comfortable playing with his back behind the basket and also a knock down shooter who can compliment the game of Thomas. The good news for them is there are a lot of players they can trade for and also own a multitude of draft picks they can offer in return.
Ainge is known for not being shy to pull the trigger on trades which he believes can improve his team. With his All-Star point guard giving his support, it will only give him more confidence to push through with whatever he’s planning for the roster in the next few days.
