The Boston Celtics’ power forward Blake Griffin is likely to get traded to the Golden State Warriors this offseason. The veteran has played for the Los Angeles Clippers, Detroit Pistons, and Brooklyn Nets, apart from the Celtics. Now, it looks like he will add another team to the list.

They have won all four of their matches to date and are sitting on the top in the Atlantic Division. It is speculated that they will be parting ways with some players to manage their financial stability. Can they trade Griffin for a start? Can the Warriors make it happen?
