According to NBA insider Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, the Boston Celtics are interested in trading for Kelly Olynyk, Delon Wright and Andre Drummond.

Olynyk plays for the Utah Jazz, Wright plays for the Washington Wizards and Drummond plays for the Chicago Bulls.

“The Celtics are looking to package some of their minimum contract players at the end of the rotation and draft pick compensation to bolster their bench heading into the playoffs, league sources told HoopsHype,” Scotto reported in his NBA article. “Boston has expressed interest in a wide range of trade targets, including Kelly Olynyk, Delon Wright, Andre Drummond, and others, league sources told HoopsHype.”

The Celtics have the best record in the NBA at 38-12. They don’t have to make a trade since the current roster is so talented. However, it appears Brad Stevens wants to do something.
