There are three new members to the Boston Celtics and each has a set of early expectations.

With plenty of uncertainty regarding the future of Kevin Garnett, Boston decided to select two big men—Jared Sullinger and Fab Melo—in the first round. Since the draft, Garnett has signed a three-year deal and will be a mentor for the two newest post players.

The Celtics used their second-round draft pick on Syracuse small forward Kris Joseph, who could also play a role in next season’s mix.

Boston has yet to finalize its roster for next season and training camp will be a big step forward in that decision. Each of these rookies will have to earn their stay on the roster and prove to Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers that they’re worthy.

These are the early expectations that each Boston newcomer will have to live up to.
