Heat, Celtics want reunion with Kelly Olynyk

Both the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat are interested in bringing back Utah Jazz big man Kelly Olynyk to their squads, according to Steve Bulpett of Heavy Sports.

"A source close to the Heat tells Heavy Sports the club is interested in a reunion with Kelly Olynyk — and that Miami isn’t his only suitor. The Celtics are also said to be looking at the possibility of re-acquiring the 6-11 floor-spacing big man, who spent his first four NBA seasons in Boston," Bulpett said.

While both teams are interested, Bulpett added that it's not likely either team will come away with Olynyk.

"According to a league executive with knowledge of the situation, the Celts are still trying to learn what it would take to get Olynyk from the Jazz, but an Eastern Conference source whose club has been working the market for a center/power forward doesn’t believe the Heat or Celtics will be able to meet what Utah wants for Olynyk, averaging 11.9 points on 49.5 percent shooting (40.6 pct. on 3-pointers)."

The source also explained to Bulpett why both teams want to reunite with Olynyk or another backup big like him.

“Boston and Miami want to get another big player that’s better than what they have — not necessarily better than (Celtics Rob) Williams and (Al) Horford and Grant and (Heat center Bam) Adebayo, but better than all of the rest of the guys after them.”
