Trade Proposal: Kevin Porter Jr. to Celtics, Josh Green to Join Houston Rockets?

In a proposed four-team trade scenario involving the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers, and Boston Celtics, there’s a potential solution to an upcoming issue for the Rockets. The concern lies with Kevin Porter Jr., who is approaching the end of his contract this year, prompting the Rockets to consider extracting value from him before he becomes a free agent.

According to a trade proposal by, the Rockets would be part of a four-team deal that would bring them Tim Hardaway Jr. and Josh Green from the Dallas Mavericks.

Here’s the entire proposed trade breakdown:

– Dallas Mavericks Receive: Buddy Hield, Robert Williams.

– Boston Celtics Receive: Kevin Porter Jr., 2028 Second-Round Pick (MIA via DAL).

– Indiana Pacers Receive: Christian Wood, Payton Pritchard.

– Houston Rockets Receive: Tim Hardaway Jr., Josh Green.

In essence, the Rockets would trade Porter Jr. to the Celtics in exchange for Hardaway Jr. and Green. This trade seems favorable for all teams involved, except the Indiana Pacers, who might need to invest more in a sign-and-trade for Christian Wood than what’s been offered to him in the current free-agent market.

The Celtics could also have some reservations, considering Robert Williams’ injury history and his role following the arrival of Porzingis.

For the Rockets, this trade would bring in another experienced player, and Green would further bolster their young core, potentially becoming a long-term asset for the team.
