Trade target number 3: San Antonio Spurs - Zach Collins, C/PF

Zach Collins is a big who can rebound, pass, and shoot. The Boston Celtics should be looking for floor-spacing big men at the deadline, Collins fits the bill.

The San Antonio Spurs don't necessarily need Collins on their team. He plays the same position as Victor Wembanyama and honestly, at this point, the Spurs should be in the business of adding draft assets and veterans who can help take pressure off of Wemby.

The Celtics are there to gladly take Collins off the Spurs' hands. Collins is the perfect backup for Kristaps Porzingis and Al Horford. Porzingis has a history with the injury bug and Horford is 37 years old. Adding depth behind the two bigs is a priority. Going into the playoffs without a "break-glass-in-case-of-emergency" big is malpractice.
