It has been quite a chaotic offseason for the Boston Celtics so far. Fresh off a frustratingly bad 2020-21 season, the team has made numerous changes regarding their players and their coaches/front office. It’s safe to say this team will look much different than the one that crawled to the finish line last season.
It may not seem like it, but the NBA season is creeping up very quickly. Preseason action starts up in less than a month, and the start of the regular season is just over a month away, with the opening tipoff for the Celtics taking place on October 20th against the New York Knicks. Within short time, we will be watching the Celtics in action again.
While the C’s haven’t pulled off the huge move they were expected to for a point in time, they have addressed the stunning lack of depth this team possessed last season. A number veterans have been added to the mix to take minutes from the inexperienced youngsters who were in way over their heads towards the end of last season.
All in all, the 2021-22 NBA season should offer a chance for the Celtics to rebound and assert themselves as one of the top teams in the league. A reason for that is because of the big moves they made this offseason that will hopefully pay dividends this upcoming season and seasons beyond. Let’s take a look back at three of the best moves the Boston Celtics made this offseason, starting with one that happened right after the end of the season.
