As we inch closer to the 2023 NBA draft, the silly season rumor mill begins to kick into overdrive with a host of rumbles relevant to the Boston Celtics percolating up through the league’s media sphere. Bleacher Report’s Chris Haynes followed up on a report from MassLive’s Brian Robb that the Celtics are fielding trade calls on all of their guards early in the 2023 offseason.

Players who could be on the move include veteran Marcus Smart, freshly minted starter Derrick White, Sixth Man of the Year Malcolm Brogdon, and Oregon alum Payton Pritchard to clear playing time in their backcourt.
