On Celtics trade talks and potentially giving up Dennis Schroder in a deal:
Boston is very confident in simply switching Josh Richardson to Schroder’s on-ball backup PG duties, per a source. Celtics don’t feel they have to get back a PG for Schroder. – 11:37 AM

Example of how single-game plus/minus is kind of broken:
Josh Richardson played one of his worst games of the season. 0-for-8 overall and 0-for-6 from three.
He finished as a +26. – 8:26 PM

Marcus Smart revving up all the #Celtics fans here in Orlando waiving a towel above his head. Meanwhile, Josh Richardson inside the huddle telling the young guys to lock in and hold on to this lead. – 8:10 PM

More on this storyline

Keith Smith: As far as Josh Richardson goes…the Celtics have been getting lots of calls, but nothing has gotten close. Boston doesn’t want to move Richardson in a deal that isn’t an upgrade this season and next season. Lakers called, but conversation didn’t go very far, per a source. -via Twitter @KeithSmithNBA / February 8, 2022
What is clear is that there is a specific need for another plus-perimeter defender, whether that be a forward or a guard. In that realm, one possible trade target could be Josh Richardson, the shooting guard from the Boston Celtics. League sources indicate he’s available. Theoretically, he is not out of Utah’s price range. -via The Athletic / February 7, 2022
In other Celtics discussions, Boston continues searching for landing spots for point guard Dennis Schroder and wing Josh Richardson. A framework of Schroder to Chicago for Troy Brown Jr. and a second-round pick has circulated around the league, while the Jazz have been consistently mentioned as a possible destination for Richardson. -via Bleacher Report / February 2, 2022
