The Boston Celtics are barely in the playoff race, and a lot of it has to do with their lack of production from long range. Fortunately for GM Danny Ainge, there are a good number of three-point specialists available on the trade market.
The Celtics' attempt at using Jason Terry and Courtney Lee to replace sharpshooter Ray Allen has failed miserably, and the numbers reflect it. After ranking seventh in three-point percentage last season, with a mark of 37-percent, Boston has slipped to 27th this season. The team's current three-point percentage is a lowly 33.5-percent.
This means that Ainge needs to get on the phone now, especially since the trade deadline is just a few weeks away. There are plenty of effective shooters that could be available on the market, and adding just one to the mix could be enough to get the Celtics that NBA fans know and love back in action.
With the season getting closer to being lost with each passing day, there is no better time than now for Ainge to start putting together potential trade packages.
