NBA Trade Rumors: Boston Celtics planning to get CJ McCollum of Portland Trailblazers

Boston Celtics seems to be working to improve its bench strength. This may be the reason that the team seems to be working to attract and get hold of CJ McCollum. There is no denying the fact that the team seems to believe that he may be far more useful to scoring compared to others including Isaiah Thomas.

NBA analysts believe that the team is looking for some trade before it is too late. The 6.4 feet CJ McCollum comes with great reputation and impressive performance in recent months and the Boston Celtics management believes him to be of immense use for their side.

They are of the view that he is not a great prospect for his current team, Portland Trailblazers. McCollum might be considered a ‘chucker’ but that could be what the Celtics need, argued John Shames of HH. While Isaiah Thomas is having a scoring average of 21.6 points per game, he’s not nearly as reliable as that figure would indicate.

On the other hand they believe that Thomas is an opportunistic scorer more than he is a creator, and when he plays, the Celtics’ offense is continuously working to find him open shots, instead of asking him to create them by himself, Shames said.

He has shown impressive performance this season. With the departures of Nicolas Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge, Wesley Matthews and Robin Lopez, McCollum was elevated to the starting shooting guard spot for the 2015–16 season. He didn’t disappoint the fans or the team managers as on October 28, 2015, McCollum scored a career-high 37 points (including 22 points in the first quarter) in the Trail Blazers’ 112–94 season opening win over the New Orleans Pelicans. If that was not enough, on December 27, he recorded 35 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists in a 98–94 win over the Sacramento Kings. No Blazers player in the previous 29 years had put up numbers similar to McCollum’s near triple-double.
