The Boston Celtics offseason plan is in full swing. They haven’t made many moves, but the ones they have made are solid. There’s no question that this team is in a better spot than they were when their season came to a crushing end in Game 6 of the 2022 NBA Finals.
They kicked things off in the 2022 NBA Draft by adding JD Davison, an exciting raw prospect, at the end of the second round. Davison won’t have many expectations considering he was the 53rd overall pick of the draft, but if nothing else, he’s an explosive young guard who could eventually find his way into the rotation a few seasons down the line.
The Celtics really got things going when free agency kicked off. They came to a verbal agreement with Danilo Gallinari that will be finalized once he is released from the San Antonio Spurs, and then swung a trade with the Indiana Pacers for a new sixth man in Malcolm Brogdon. Both of these guys should prove to be great fits for Boston moving forward.
But with a couple of new faces on the roster, that means that the rotation has crowded up a bit. The Celtics rode with a pretty thin eight or nine man rotation throughout most of the postseason, so adding new faces to the squad may help ease the burden on a couple of these guys.
But it could also force the front office to deal some players away if things are believed to be too crowded. If that ends up being the case, here are two players that could be traded after the C’s initial moves this offseason.
