Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic Complete Trade

The floodgates have seemingly opened on NBA Trade Deadline day, as another deal has just been announced by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski: 

The Celtics are currently 7th in the Eastern Conference and don't appear to be dropping out of playoff contention anytime soon as the team is currently on a 6-game winning streak.  The move is said to be merely a cost-cutting measure, as the Celtics would be up against the luxury tax while employing two players that will not be suiting up for the rest of the season.  Dozier has a torn ACL, while Bol Bol is out with a stress fracture in his foot. 

The Magic, who are well outside playoff contention, only had to give up a second-round pick in exchange, and the Magic could see Bol Bol being a part of their future as the 22-year-old has a team option on his rookie contract for next season, while Dozier is an unrestricted free agent following this season.

Stay tuned to between now and 3:00 PM EST for the latest news regarding the NBA Trade Deadline.
