What a difference a day makes, right? Well, in this case, we didn’t even make it a full day.
The Boston Celtics reportedly were “frantically” looking to acquire assets in hopes of trading for Houston Rockets guard James Harden at 5:23 p.m. ET. Those assets, reported at the time, would be acquired through trades of Gordon Hayward and Kemba Walker.
Less than two hours later, at 7:09 p.m. ET, the Boston Herald’s Mark Murphy reported a stark contrast. The Celtics, according to the longtime NBA writer, have “no interest” in a potential Harden deal.
Such is life in the NBA where every minute feels like an hour and every hour feels like an entire new news cycle.
