When it comes to trade rumors, it seems the Boston Celtics are always a team that's involved in some capacity. But how often they actually follow-through on those "trades" is another story entirely.

For some reason, it seems like the Celtics aren't as serious in trade talks as they have teams believe, and it's a reputation that's starting to catch up with them. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, opposing GMs are growing wary over Boston's theatrics, and it's hurting their leverage.

For as often as the Celtics are mentioned, they've rarely been the team that gets the job done in the trade market. Instead, Boston is reported as the runner up or the team that just wasn't quite able to get the deal over the finish line. 

That now could be having its repercussions as this trade deadline is fast approaching. Adrian Wojnarowski on ESPN’s Trade Deadline Show said that other teams may not have the trust in Boston's front office due to its past in deal making. 

Obviously, the Celtics have been involved in a number of different rumors so far, and their interest is said to be spread out over many players.

But if teams can't trust them to close the deal, they may find themselves at a disadvantage when it comes to trading for a player that they want. And this season, with the team struggling to keep its head above the water, they need all the help they can get.
