James Harden is the latest NBA superstar who may be on the move.
I'm told from a western source @Celtics actually did some research on James Harden to decide if they should pursue a trade discussion… They were strongly advised to keep away. The word on how things slipped apart in Houston didn't paint a lot of people in a very good light.

Clearly, whatever happened during the Celtics’ research had a major impact. After all, it’s not everyday that a former MVP makes it known that he is looking for a new home.
Still, the Celtics have very recent experience when it comes to acquiring a star that can quickly cause more trouble than he’s worth.
Kyrie Irving had a forgettable tenure with the Celtics after he was acquired via trade.
The Celtics already have a star-studded roster, but it seems they’re looking for more. However, based on this report, it won’t be Harden who ends up in Boston.
