The Boston Celtics are 27-12 through 39 games, which is the best record in the NBA this season and good for the first seed in the playoffs as the regular season is nearing its halfway point.
That said, the NBA’s trade deadline is quickly approaching, which means Brad Stevens will clean up his roster in a way that’ll upgrade the team and put them in a better position financially.
As a result of that, the Celtics already made a trade, sending Noah Vonleh and cash to the San Antonio Spurs.
Unfortunately, San Antonio is looking to do the same thing as Boston in regards to their roster, so the Spurs are also waiving Vonleh, making him a free agent if he clears waivers.
Vonleh, selected ninth overall in 2014, has been on eight teams in nine years, and if you count this recent trade, it’s 10 teams in nine years.
Hopefully there’s a spot for Vonleh somewhere in the league, but it won’t be in Boston or San Antonio.
