The Celtics have now been linked to three forwards as the NBA trade season starts to take shape.

Listen to your team news NOW.

First, there was Andre Drummond from Detroit, who’s known for his dominance on the glass, to go with scoring ability in the paint.

Then there was the Latvian Lazer, Davis Bertans of the Washington Wizards. He’s been out with a quad injury, but was shooting 43.4% from deep through 28 games.

The latest forward to be linked to the Celtics is Oklahoma City’s Danilo Gallinari. According to Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report, the Celtics have “monitored” Gallinari.

And while the Thunder have put together a solid effort this season, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has reported Oklahoma City “is open for business.”

Like Bertans, Gallinari is a quality shooter above all else. He’s shooting 39.2% from deep this year, 37.8% on his career.
