Celtics’ potential trade targets

The NBA’s trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m., and the Celtics have been linked to several potential deals. Take a look at some of the players that Celtics personnel chief Danny Ainge may be considering taking on in a trade:

The Celtics are one of a handful of teams rumored to be in on Smith, who is on the books for $13.2 million this season. One trade rumor has the Celtics salivating over Smith and willing to offer Brandon Bass and Jeff Green in return for the power forward. Yahoo! Sports reported that there is a strong belief Smith will be moved and listed the Celtics as one of a handful of possible destinations. Another scenario might be for the Celtics to sign Smith as a free agent in the offseason, but that move would require the Celtics to clear salary off the books beforehand.
