  1. Boston Celtics

In the weak Eastern Conference the Boston Celtics are right in the hunt to make the playoffs despite being in a rebuild mode. Boston has been stock piling first-round picks over the past few seasons, with some help from the Nets in the Paul Pierce Kevin Garnett trade.

Boston seems to like what they have in the backcourt moving forward with Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley, but when it comes to their frontcourt they could use a force like Lopez.

The Celtics have Tyler Zeller and Kelly Olynyk as their centers right now, but neither have emerged as a starting center. If the Celtics want to make a run at the playoffs this season they can certainly get Lopez with all of their young players and draft picks.
