It's early in the season, but it's never too early to start examining potential trades. This is especially the case when a team may have some holes that need patching up. So, what are some trades the Boston Celtics should already be thinking about?
The thing about the Celtics is that they have a lot of pieces they can deal, thanks to GM Danny Ainge's incredible offseason. For example, when Avery Bradley returns from shoulder surgery, Boston will have a guard rotation of Rajon Rondo, Bradley, Jason Terry, Courtney Lee and Leandro Barbosa. One would certainly not be out of line to assume that not all five of those players will be with the team once the trade deadline is up.
Boston also has three rookies in Jared Sullinger, Fab Melo and Kris Joseph who they can use in potential deals. The latter two are currently in the D-League, but that will definitely not prevent them from being asked for in trades, as they both have talent.
Here are a few trades the C's should be considering making.
