With the draft over, the Celtics seemed to have found two legitimate bench pieces for next season and possible starters in the future. But that does not mean there is not still work to be done.

The Celtics have six players who are technically on their roster and own the rights to two more. That means, at minimum, they need to find four more pieces to complete their roster.
