The Boston Celtics are showing interest in Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert, Legion Hoops reported.
The Celtics are preparing to offer the Jazz a variety of exchange options this offseason. Strengthening the center position is a priority for the club. Gobert will become an unrestricted free agent after the 2020/2021 season. In the past season, the 28-year-old basketball player averaged 15.1 points and collected 13.5 rebounds per game.
Earlier, Gobert commented on the announced deal to sell Utah with the hope of staying at the club for a long time. The Miller family has agreed to sell Jazz to Qualtrics founder Ryan Smith.
“I’m glad Ryan will be part of our family! I know that he is fully committed to keeping the organization in the best possible condition, and is determined to continue doing great work for the benefit of our communities, ”Gobert wrote on his Twitter page.
Golden State wants to get Chicago leader to trade
The NBA team “Chicago Bulls” has decided to put Thaddeus Young and Tomasz Satoransky on the exchange, The Athletic reports. According to the source, the Golden State Warriors are interested in Thaddeus Young, wanting to find an additional solution as a rotation player for Draymond Green.
In the current season’s NBA Western Conference standings, Golden State finished last with 80 points in 65 games and does not participate in the restart of the season.
Thaddeus Young joined the Chicago Bulls ahead of the 2019/2020 season. Young played 64 regular season games with the Chicago squad, averaging 10.3 points per game, 4.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists. In December, the Los Angeles Clippers showed interest in Young, but the deal never materialized. Young has a three-year contract with Chicago.
Miami aims to sign two eminent NBA veterans
According to Five Reasons Sports Network, there are two free agents on the Miami Heat’s radar. We’re talking about Paul Millsap and Wesley Matthews.
The Hit has a mid-level financial exception of $ 9.25 million. This is the amount the club wants to distribute to sign the two veterans.
As a reminder, Miami’s main transfer target is the signing of Milwaukee Bucks forward Yannis Adetokunbo when entering the free agency market in 2021. In addition, it is possible that the “Hit” will try to barter for an NBA star this offseason.
Last season, Miami stopped one step away from the title. Eric Spoelstra’s men finished the regular season fifth in the East, but beat the higher-seeded teams in the playoffs and made it to the final, where they lost 2-4 to the Los Angeles Lakers.
