While a few dissenting opinions have popped up over the last week or so, for the most part, fans of the Boston Celtics have been largely supportive of the team’s 2021 offseason moves, especially the extensions of veteran guard Marcus Smart, newly-acquired wing Josh Richardson and rising big man Robert Williams III.
And among those fans is a former Celtic champion and Hall of Famer — namely Cedric Maxwell. The former NBA Finals MVP isn’t just a fan of how much of a bargain they are for the trio of players Boston gave them out to, but also for how they might be used in a potential trade to add a third star alongside All-Star forwards Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum.
“Those contracts,” said Maxwell on a recent episode of his eponymous CLNS Media podcast, “are team-friendly.”
