The Boston Celtics are looking to make a playoff run the the Eastern Conference while the Sacramento Kings are trying to add some building blocks to build around in the future. A deal between these two NBA teams could help both teams accomplish their goals.

The Celtics are a talented roster lead by Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, and Jaylen Brown; but they need to add some reliable depth around their big three to compete for a top three seed in the Eastern Conference.

Boston currently sits in fourth place in the Eastern Conference and are behind the Milwaukee Bucks by three games. There is a need for the Celtics to make a move at the NBA trade deadline to provide a bit of a boost for the stretch-run.
