NBA news: Anthony Davis shock trade claim with Boston Celtics, Bradley Beal also mentioned | Other | Sport

That’s the opinion of ESPN’s Tim Bontemps, who believes Beal would be a great fit on the Celtics.

Boston were backed as the favourites in the Eastern Conference heading into the new season but they have been disappointing thus far.

A demoralising defeat to the New York Knicks last time out was their third straight loss, leaving them with a 9-9 record.

With only 18 games played in a long season, the Celtics have plenty of time to rectify the issue.

But Boston head coach Brad Stevens has stated the main issue has been his team are not playing with the “same personality we played with last year” before adding there are “50,000 issues below that”.

They will still be aiming to go one better than last season and reach the NBA Finals.

Celtics general manager Danny Ainge has shown in the past he is not afraid to make a move in order to help his team.

And if their problems on the court continue to persist, Ainge could potentially look at possible trades.

It was reported earlier this week that the Washington Wizards are ready to listen to offers for all their players, including All-Stars Beal and John Wall.

But while Bontemps admits Beal would look good alongside Kyrie Irving, he thinks Davis still remains the No 1 target for Boston if they were to make a trade.

“I mean Boston would be pretty great,” Bontemps said on The Hoop Collective podcast.

“I mean the Celtics have a million picks, they have Jaylen Brown, they have lots of stuff.

“But I think they are saving all their powder for a potential Anthony Davis trade.

“So I don’t think they are going all in on a Beal trade.”

Brian Windhorst added that Boston would need to include Marcus Smart in a deal if they were to go for Beal.

“I mean, you’d have to include Marcus Smart in the deal to just make the money work,” Windhorst said.

“What about Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown and one of their picks?”
