Report: Celtics Offered Sixers Marcus Smart, Picks 16 and 28 for Nerlens Noel and No. 3
So the Celtics and Sixers rivalry seems like it might be back.
According to a report from B.A. Turner of the LA Times, the Celtics offered the Sixers a package that includes Marcus Smart, Picks 16 and 28 for Nerlens Noel and the third overall pick in the draft.
Don't believe me, here is the report from Turner in the Times:
League executives also said the Celtics were trying to move up in the draft, using their two first-round picks and two second-round picks as bait.
The executives said the Celtics were looking to trade point guard Marcus Smart and the Nos. 16 and 28 picks in the first round to Philadelphia for center/forward Nerlens Noel and the No. 3 pick. But the 76ers, the executives said, weren't interested.
In other news, the Celtics might just hate the Sixers again and that's alright with me.
