Resolution No. 3: Continue to develop the rookies
With extended playing time, both Langford and Williams have provided the type of versatility the team envisioned when they drafted them and that is mostly at the defensive side of the court.
While each is not tearing it up offensively (and they don’t need to), they both have showed they can provide some offense. Now that Grant Williams is knocking down 3’s, he is giving the team another scoring option off the bench.
Langford, on the other hand, has shown his ability to drive to the hope as well as score from the outside. This gives the team more depth and players who can step in at the wing position due to injury.
As far as 2020 and beyond goes, the Boston Celtics need to see more out of those two players and also get Carsen Edwards going.
In all, Brad Stevens will have a tough time finding minutes for the rookies when everyone is healthy, but in recognizing that, he is assigning them to Maine to get minutes on the court in real basketball games.
That experience will help the Boston Celtics as a team moving forward as each of the players mentioned above have the ability to help the big team when depth is challenge. Of course, resolution No. 1 should settle that.
