The offseason for the Boston Celtics got started much earlier than they had hoped. After defeating the Washington Wizards in the play-in game for the seventh seed, they were bounced out of the NBA playoffs in five games by the Brooklyn Nets.

Shortly after that, Boston made a flurry of decisions.

Head coach Brad Stevens stepped down and took over the front office as Danny Ainge stepped down. Replacing Stevens on the bench is Ime Udoka, a highly regarded assistant coach who moved up the ranks and has earned a head coach job.

Stevens wasted little time in making moves, as just over two weeks on the job he traded Kemba Walker and a 2021 first-round pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Al Horford, Moses Brown and a future second-round pick.

You can be sure that Stevens is not done retooling this roster. Boston fell woefully short of their expectations during the 2020-21 season and will not want a repeat of that. There will be plenty of more moves on the horizon this offseason.

What can we expect from the Boston Celtics during Stevens’ first offseason leading the front office? Here are three bold predictions for Boston’s offseason.
