The rumor mill is cranking in Boston with the Celtics expected to be fairly active at the deadline. While Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown remain integral to the C’s future plan, Boston is looking to “reconfigure the pieces” around the two Jays, per’s Steve Bulpett.

Veteran Al Horford is apparently being shopped in hopes of yielding another center, according to The Athletic’s Jared Weiss. Josh Richardson is continuously floated in trade talks, while Marcus Smart officially became eligible to be dealt on January 25. However, it’s a fellow Celtics guard who is most likely to be donning a new uniform come mid-February.

Outperforming his one-year, $5.9 million contract, Dennis Schroder is primed for a major pay boost next season. Problem is, Boston can’t exactly supply him with such, as they don’t have his Bird Rights and are capped at offering him a contract worth approximately $7.1 million in 2022-23. With that in mind, Schroder is widely viewed as expendable in NBA circles — despite his solid production.

As for who may take a swing at the 28-year-old guard on the trade market, The Athletic’s John Hollinger believes it’s quite obvious. “I think Cleveland is by far the most logical destination,” he wrote on January 25.

In terms of what a potential Schroder deal to the Cavaliers may look like, Hollinger proposed Cleveland package two bottom of the roster players alongside a second-round draft choice to acquire the services of the Boston College product.
