The Boston Celtics are going to look a lot different when they take the court for the 2021-22 NBA season than they did during the 2020-21 season from the top to the bottom.

The front office saw an overhaul, as Danny Ainge stepped away from his position and was promptly replaced by Brad Stevens. With Stevens moving from the sidelines to the front office, the team needed a new head coach. Ime Udoka, a highly regarded assistant coach in the league, was tabbed as the new leading man in Beantown.

Udoka will have some new players to use this upcoming season. Stevens moved swiftly to complete his first trade, sending starting point guard Kemba Walker, the team’s 2021 first-round draft pick and a future second-round pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder. In exchange, the Celtics received Al Horford and a future second-round pick.

While Horford will help stabilize the frontcourt, the backcourt now has a void to fill. While Walker battled knee injuries, he was a key cog in the team’s rotation and offensive attack. Luckily for Stevens and company, there are a lot of point guards available this offseason.

Free agency is littered with veterans such as Kyle Lowry, Mike Conley Jr. and Dennis Schroder. Lonzo Ball is another popular player in restricted free agency.

But, Boston does not have the cap space to use on free agents. Instead, they could look to the trade route to fill the point guard spot. Who could they be looking at? Here is the perfect offseason trade target for Boston.
