Massive Boson Celtics, Washington Wizards, And Los Angeles Clippers Gets Horrible Update (NBA News)
Earlier today It was reported that the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Clippers and Washington Wizards were working on a three-team trade that would see the Celtics acquire Kristaps Porzingis and the Clippers land Malcolm Brogdon. This per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. It was also reported that there were “still outstanding issues” to be resolved before a deal can be completed.
As part of the proposed framework, Porzingis would opt into his $36 million contract for the 2023-24 season and go from Washington to Boston. Brogdon would go from Boston to the Clippers, and the Wizards would receive Marcus Morris, Amir Coffey and the 30th pick in this year’s draft from the Clippers. Now, all of that has completely fallen apart.
The Massive Three-Team Trade Has Completely Fallen Apart
Hours after the three-team trade was in the works, it was reported that it has fallen apart and the teams are moving on:
The three-team talks on a Porzingis-Brogdon deal with Celtics, Wizards and Clippers have fallen apart, sources tell ESPN. Sides are moving on.
This trade would have sent shock waves through the NBA. It hasn’t been reported yet what exactly fell through in the trade, but it certainly isn’t happening anymore. Adrian Wojnarowski had yet another massive update after the trade fell through:
The Wizards are still working on ways to get Kristaps Porzingis to the Celtics in an opt-in and trade scenario, but it won’t be in a three-way with the Clippers, sources tell ESPN. Porzingis still has the ability to decline his $36 million player option and become a free agent.
At the end of the day, Kristaps Porzingis will likely become a member of the Boston Celtics. This move will certainly keep the Celtics has one of the favorites in the Eastern Conference in 2023-24.
