The NBA free agency will provide the Boston Celtics with options at every position.
From point guard to center, this team is chock-full of holes. If one thing is perfectly clear, it’s that the Celtics must be aggressive this summer.
Otherwise, any hopes of becoming a contender next year can be thrown out the window.
After stumbling to a 41-40 regular-season record, Boston made a quick exit from the playoffs in the first round. It was the team’s worst performance since Kevin Garnett arrived in 2007.
Plagued by key injuries and offensive struggles, the Celtics got off to a slow start. It made making a move at the trade deadline almost imperative if the team wanted to turn it around. However, the team essentially remained stagnant during the window.
Although Boston got off to a quick start following the passing of the deadline, the team eventually imploded down the stretch. It revealed the lack of depth and the need for additions to the roster.
This summer, general manager Danny Ainge will have a second chance to make the necessary adjustments.
Luckily for him, the market will feature top talent at every position.
