5 Best landing spots for Malcolm Brogdon if Boston Celtics trade him

Even though Brogdon is not considered a starter for the Celtics heading into the season, there’s no question that he’s somewhat of an underrated player at this point in his career. If he were to hit the trade block at some point this season, he’d emerge as one of the most sought-after players.

And there could be some intriguing potential landing spots for Brogdon.

Here are the 5 Best landing spots for Malcolm Brogdon if the Boston Celtics trade him


Chicago Bulls

Heading into what may be the last season of the DeMar DeRozan-Zach LaVine window, I wouldn’t be all that surprised if the Chicago Bulls tried to go all-in on a short-term move that wouldn’t completely impact their future. One potential move that could help them make a move up the Eastern Conference standings this season involves trading for Malcolm Brogdon.

I’m not exactly sure what the Boston Celtics would be asking in return for Brogdon, but I can’t help but wonder if the Bulls would consider an Alex Caruso for Brogdon swap. Maybe some draft capital coming from one team to the other would help cement a potential deal – that would depend on who teams value more between the two.

It’s an intriguing idea as an offensive-minded Brogdon would give the Bulls more of what they need at the lead-guard position than what Caruso offers as more of a glue player at this point.

Plus, the idea of Caruso as a poor man’s Marcus Smart has to be at least somewhat intriguing to Boston.
