According to the latest NBA trade rumors, the Boston Celtics are still trying to add a star player to their roster. The Celtics have been linked to a number of All-Stars over the past few weeks, and Yibada has opined that Wizards point guard John Wall may be their current trade target. The news website China Topix reports that despite some talk to the contrary, the Minnesota Timberwolves still have point guard Ricky Rubio on the trading block. A fresh trade scenario has surfaced online that does indeed involve John Wall, Ricky Rubio, and the Boston Celtics.
The rumored trade proposal points to a three-team, four-player swap that would bring NBA All-Star John Wall to Beantown. The Washington Wizards would receive Ricky Rubio and a trio of first-round draft choices (one pick in 2018, in addition to a pair of picks in 2019). The Minnesota Timberwolves would come out of this deal with NBA All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas and power forward Jonas Jerebko.
