Boston Celtics: 2 Moves That Could Improve the C's Midseason
Could Smith be the player to take the Celtics over the edge?

Fifteen games in, the Boston Celtics are still struggling to find their season's identity. However, some roster moves could be the key to unlocking a tremendous midseason run.

This isn't the news that newly appointed President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge wanted to hear, especially following an offseason that was full of moves.

Although the Celtics lost Ray Allen in free agency, the team was able to resign some valuable assets—Kevin Garnett, Jeff Green, Brandon Bass and Chris Wilcox. Add in the acquisitions of Courtney Lee, Jason Terry and Leandro Barbosa, and Boston looked like a team that was built for a run to the postseason.

However, Lee—who was slotted to fill in the temporary vacancy at shooting guard—has struggled to find his rhythm. The former Houston Rocket has only averaged 5.2 points per game. After starting the first five games of the season, Lee hasn’t started since.

Throw in the inconsistent play of the entire Celtics bench and Boston is beginning to look like a puzzle that is missing a couple of pieces.

Here are two midseason moves that would prove beneficial for the Celtics.
