EVERY TRADE WE WILL SEE THIS SEASON: TRADE 4 (TRADE DEADLINE)
BOSTON CELTICS GET: 2019 Most Favorable Of Denver Nuggets or Washington Wizards Second Round Draft Pick
DENVER NUGGETS GET: Marcus Morris (absorbed into Kenneth Faried Traded Player Exception)
The Boston Celtics may have that “good problem” of having too much talent to find enough minutes for every one, but it is still a problem. They would probably be better served using this issue as an advantage and getting below the luxury tax. The luxury tax payments aren’t of major concern to the Celtics ownership, but getting below it without losing any core pieces or assets would certainly have to be considered.
Marcus Morris gives the Denver Nuggets veteran depth at the forward spot and compliments their second unit well. Morris is versatile enough to be mixed in with a variety of line-ups for the Nuggets. He isn’t on a bad contract and helps them win now without giving up much or going above the luxury tax.
