Boston is currently sitting in fourth place in the Eastern Conference Playoffs race, but the Celtics rank near the bottom of the NBA in points scored, and despite rumors the team is waiting until next summer to make any moves, the time could be now.
Sports World Report has suggested that General Manager Danny Ainge could help this franchise with moves this season and one player that could add some instant offense to the squad is Jimmer Fredette.
The former first round pick of the Sacramento Kings is in limbo, playing 20+ minutes one game than nearly nothing the next. The management for the Kings decided not to offer an extension to the former BYU star, thus making him a free agent after the season and that has led to several trade rumors over the last month.
Boston head coach Brad Stevens has done a good job with limited options on the roster, but adding a player like Fredette who can hit the three, but also drive to the basket and open up the offense for others is an intriguing option and one Ainge should look into before the NBA trade deadline.
While the young combo guard has not played to expectations, he did show earlier in the year when given playing time he can contribute and a change of scenery couldn't hurt as players seem to find Sacramento the abyss of professional basketball.
