While it isn’t clear if Boston Globe beat writer Gary Washburn is speculating or has heard a little bird chirping about players of interest to the Celtics’ front office, he did bring up a potential player of interest for the team should a Beal pursuit not work out. “A potential Celtics free agent target could be Chicago’s Zach LaVine, who is entering the final year of his contract,” writes the Globe analyst of a different direction the Celtics could take.
The cap logistics required to sign LaVine would require a fair amount of wizardry to make such a move work, but would also leave a tiny bit more wiggle room for Boston than the larger max deal Beal would be eligible for as a 10-year plus veteran.
