The Boston Celtics 2021 offseason has seen its fair share of scrutiny among those who find it excellent and a dud alike, with ESPN senior writer Kevin Pelton now joining the fray in his new league-wide assessment of offseason action.
Pelton may not be as wowed as some of the Celtics faithful, but he does see Boston’s offseason maneuvers as a strong play to improve the team from the front office down to the two way players. The ESPN analyst takes into account the walls constructed intentionally or not by current team president Brad Stevens’ predecessor Danny Ainge and is supportive of what Stevens did in those confines.
“Given limited flexibility entering the offseason, new Celtics president of basketball operations Brad Stevens did well to reshuffle the lineup around All-Stars Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum,” writes Pelton.
One way or another, the Celtics need to shed a contract before opening night – but whose? https://t.co/fE7ctsVv09
