The NBA market expert also stated that “The Celtics are trading Robert Williams, Malcolm Brogdon, 2024 GSW 1st, 2029 unprotected BOS first to the Blazers“, and that “The Celtics were among the teams at very top of Holiday’s wish list in recent days and expectation is Celtics are eager to retain him long-term, sources said. Holiday has a year left on the deal. Boston beat out several teams in both conferences with a significant trade package”.
In the 2022-23 season with the Milwaukee Bucks, the former Philadelphia 76ers and New Orleans Pelicans player had 19.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 7.4 assists per game, shooting 47.9% from the field and 85.9% at the charity stripe.
