5. Jakob Poeltl, Free Agency

No, this is not a deal that is going to make Celtics’ fans dance in the streets but it is a deal that will improve the position and add depth. Poeltl is keeping his options open in free agency and would not cost Boston a ton of money.

Since entering the league, Poeltl has not been a huge offensive threat. Despite his high shooting average, he does not score much and finds most of his baskets to be putbacks.

Something to focus on is that Poeltl is an excellent offensive rebounder and thrives on the defensive end. He averaged 1.4 blocks per game this past season. Not to mention his toughness. Poeltl will not shy away from players with bigger reputations.

This is not a free agent signing that necessarily knocks Theis or Williams out of the equation. This is a depth move that gives the Celtics options for next season.
