Report: Celtics 'expected' to talk to Mavs about deal for Bogut

Report: Celtics 'expected' to talk to Mavs about deal for Bogut

The Celtics reportedly are "expected" to talk to the Mavericks about a deal for Andrew Bogut, according to scout.com, but negotiations would be "dependent on what bigger move Boston can make".

MORE TRADE TALK

Bogut, 32, is in the final year of his contract. The 7-foot center, while healthy, has played in only 26 games this year and is averaging just three points a game. But he's also averaging 8.3 rebounds in 22.4 minutes, and rebounding has been one of the Celtics' big areas of weakness this year. The C's rank 27th in the league in reboundinh, and 26th in defensive rebounding.

According to scout.com, the Mavs would part with Bogut for Tyler Zeller and one of Boston's first-round draft choices.
