Could Kristaps Porzingis be on the move?

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, New York Knicks executive Phil Jackson has made it clear that he's willing to trade any of his players - including budding star Kristaps Porzingis. So, which teams could be interested in the 7-foot-3 Latvian star?

According to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, the Celtics are among the teams "interested" in acquiring his services.

The Celtics, who traded the No. 1 overall pick to the Philadelphia 76ers this past weekend, have a number of intriguing draft picks in the coming years - including this year's No. 3 overall pick. Perhaps some combination of picks and current talent could be enough to land the 21-year-old star?

Porzingis is an attractive player for many reasons - his size, his shooting touch, his young age and his current contract situation.

Would Porzingis be enough to push the Celtics past the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference? The NBA offseason gets more interesting by the minute.
