Based on his performance in the preseason, Queta looked like he was going to swipe the backup center role from Luke Kornet with ease.
But we're three games into the regular season and Queta hasn't played a single minute.
Queta is on a two-way deal, limiting just how much of an impact he can make in Boston, but surely he can make more of a difference than Kornet, who has played 19 minutes without a point this season.
The Celtics will have to continue their search for a reliable big that can come off the bench should things will Queta not work out, but the 24-year-old is more than deserving of getting a chance to prove his worth.
Taking White out of the starting lineup is a shame because of how effective he and Jrue Holiday have been when it comes to shackling opposing backcourts, but at this point, the bench needs him more.
Such a move would force Boston to utilize a double-big starting lineup that features Holiday running the show with Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum at the wings, while Horford and Kristaps Porzingis take care of business down low.
White could be a great fit to fill the void left by Malcolm Brogdon, who was named NBA Sixth Man of the Year a season ago. Plus, White has more defensive upside, too.
