Did the Boston Celtics do enough at the NBA’s 2024 trade deadline?

Did the Boston Celtics do enough at the NBA’s 2024 trade deadline to secure a title? The only way we will know for sure is by the Celtics playing the games, but the team did make some substantive if minor moves ahead of the Feb. 8 moratorium on moving players.

 

The Celtics picked up backup big man Xavier Tillman, Sr. from the Memphis Grizzlies for a pair of second round draft picks and the contract of reserve forward Lamar Stevens first, a few days ahead of the deadline. Then, Boston traded for Philadelphia 76ers backup wing Jaden Springer for a second round pick while also sending reserve forward Dalano Banton to the Portland Trail Blazers for a top-55 protected second round pick.

 

 

To talk over the moves and how impactful they may be for the Celtics, the hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Beat” podcast linked up with NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg on a recent episode.
