While they have an NBA championship caliber starting rotation, the Boston Celtics have really struggled at times this season. Jayson Tatum, Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown are all fantastic players, but they cannot carry this team on their own and with no other reliable players on their bench, Boston’s championship hopes could be slipping away.
At the NBA trade deadline this year, the Celtics were rumored to be involved in some big moves, but ultimately, they only acquired Evan Fournier, Moritz Wagner and Luke Kornet for Jeff Teague, Daniel Theis, Javonte Green and two future second-round picks.
Honestly, the Celtics did nothing to better themselves at the trade deadline and as a result, it should not be surprising to see them barely get into the playoffs this year and wind up losing to one of the top teams in the first-round of the playoffs.
This year has been a big disappointment for the Boston Celtics and as a result, this offseason could result in plenty of changes being made.
Brad Stevens will likely remain the head coach of this team, but roster wise, Boston could look to make some significant moves, including breaking apart their core once again to try and compete for championships.
With that said, let’s take a look at three major changes that the Celtics should strongly consider making this offseason to keep their championship window in the Eastern Conference cracked open.
