The Boston Celtics required a shakeup this NBA offseason. The team’s current core group seemingly stagnated, as Danny Ainge shoulder the blame for not putting together a team that could compete in the Eastern Conference.
Now, that task falls upon Brad Stevens, who was head coach when the season ended and is now running the front office. He hired Ime Udoka to take his place on the sidelines but has left him without a starting point guard currently.
The first move Stevens made as a general manager was trading away Kemba Walker. Walker was sent to the Oklahoma City Thunder, along with a first-round pick and future second-rounder, for Al Horford and a future second-round pick.
That will not be the last move the franchise makes, as they need to fill in the holes on their roster. Could the Celtics upgrade their point guard position with Ben Simmons?
The much-maligned Philadelphia 76ers point guard sounds like he is on the trade block, as the 76ers have begun trade talks centered around their All-Star.
The 76ers should throw their hat in the ring, as Simmons would certainly represent a shake-up of the roster. What could a trade offer for him look like? Here is a hypothetical trade that lands Simmons in Beantown.
