Averaging 15.0 and 4.6 rebounds, the 27-year-old small forward is having himself a season for the struggling Washington Wizards who only have an outside chance of a playoff run once after the All-Star break, so they are a team that could be sellers at the NBA Trade Deadline.
With Davis Bertans also set to become an unrestricted free agent who is trending towards a big contract, the Wizards may look to get what they can now for Bertans if they feel they can’t re-sign him.
Who has assets that may intrigue the Wizards?
Well, the Boston Celtics of course, who have been rumored to have interest in the 6-foot-10 sharp-shooter.
Along with draft assets, Ainge would have a number of young players to dingle to the Wizards, so a deal would be possible without giving up any of their core players. But, is a possible high draft pick and young players worth a player in Davis Bertans who may just be a rental for the rest of the season?
We all know Danny Ainge, if he feels Bertans can help the team go far in the playoffs, he will make the deal.
