Boston Celtics champion Brian Scalabrine recently stated that the franchise is reportedly gunning to acquire Sacramento Kings forward Harrison Barnes.

The Celtics appear to believe Barnes can be the difference maker they need.

“The Celtics want Harrison Barnes,” Scalabrine said. “They think Harrison Barnes is the type of guy that can come in here and make a difference.”

Barnes, 28, has been linked to the Celtics. Moreover, the Celtics are reportedly on the cusp of making a big move to alter their roster.
