With the NBA trade deadline fast approaching, the Celtics have been connected to a few players. The latest is Larry Nance Jr. of the Cavs.

According to Cleveland.com, the Celtics, Timberwolves, 76ers, Pelicans, Heat and Mavericks have all shown interest in Nance Jr.

This shouldn't come as much of a surprise given what the Celtics need.

The Wyoming product is averaging 9.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game this season.

The 28-year-old also could be a good addition to the locker room as the Celtics look to make a second half push.
