One of the biggest names thrown around in the NBA trade rumor mill has been the Boston Celtics’ Kevin Garnett. Along with Garnett, today rumors have been getting hot around the idea of Boston shipping Paul Pierce away too.
Garnett’s name is being floated around with the Los Angeles Clippers and Pierce’s name is being floarted around with the Atlanta Hawks.
If either or both of these players are sent away from Boston, the Celtics need to find someone to fill the void left behind, but would rather need to find someone to fill their backcourt instead of their front court.
Masslive.com is reporting that the Celtics are keeping their eyes on the Charlotte Bobcats’ Ramon Session and could consider making a trade for him before tomorrow’s deadline.
Offensively, Sessions is a rather solid asset for Charlotte. This season he is averaging 14.9 points per game, which is up nearly 3 points on his career average.
Sessions is a former Buck, Timberwolf, Laker, and Cavalier who is seeing career high numbers offensively in his first year with the Charlotte Bobcats. He is on track to have his first season of at least 80+ games since the 2010 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers which is another factor is seeing new career highs in his stat column.
I don’t see Charlotte making any kind of move before the deadline, but if they do, a trade sending Sessions to Boston seems to be the most likely at this point.
