Doc Rivers Expects Celtics to Stand Pat
At least the way Doc Rivers sees it, the Celtics are going to stand pat at the trading deadline and allow the Big Three one final run.
The deadline is March 15, which comes in the middle of their critical eight-game road trip, and the recent five-game winning streak may have skewed some thinking regarding the breakup of the Big Three.
With a division title within reach and 28 games left, Rivers said he doesn’t anticipate any major moves.
“I’m sure there will be more rumors, there’s nothing you can do about that,’’ Rivers said. “We pretty much know what we want to do.
“Like I said a week ago, I’d be surprised if we did anything. Obviously, if we find someone out there who wants to give us a player, we’ll take them.’’
