Celtics among several teams inquiring about Isaiah Stewart’s trade availability

The Boston Celtics have reportedly been very active on the trade market according to MassLive’s Brian Robb — and we have heard rumbles regarding at least one of the players the Celtics might be interested in trading for according to The Athletic’s James Edwards III. Per Edwards, Boston (among other teams) has inquired after the availability of Detroit Pistons big man Isaiah Stewart.

With a surplus of young frontcourt players in Detroit, Stewart in particular makes all the sense in the world to pursue given he is exactly the sort of big Boston needs to address with Al Horford aging, Robert Williams III a regular health concern, and Grant Williams’ future with the team uncertain.

Unfortunately for the Celtics, Edwards is highly skeptical Detroit moves on from Stewart. “I don’t see the Pistons moving Beef Stew,” shared the plugged-in Pistons beat writer. “At all.”

That of course doesn’t mean that the possibility is nil, or even that what Edwards has heard is not negotiating through the media. But given that tidbit, we’d imagine any ask for Beef Stew to be a very big one indeed.

And one, perhaps, Boston ought to explore regardless given what he brings to the court at a price ($5.2 million) with Bird rights that rightfully has opposing ball clubs itching to get the Washington alum on their rosters.
