Celtics reportedly pursuing both Lou Williams, Tyreke Evans
Despite holding the best record in the Eastern Conference and having just signed Greg Monroe for relative peanuts, the Boston Celtics are still not satisfied with their team from the looks of it.
According to a report by Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald on Saturday, the Celtics are pursuing a pair of notable sixth men on the trade market: LA Clippers guard Lou Williams and Memphis Grizzlies swingman Tyreke Evans. Bulpett also adds that those two players appear to be Boston’s “main targets.”
Though the C’s already have one of the deepest squads in the NBA arguably, they still seem to lack a true go-to scorer off their bench.
Both Williams (23.5 points per game this season) and Evans (19.5 ppg) obviously fit that billing. Both are also largely expected to be on new teams come the Feb. 8 deadline.
