Are the Boston Celtics successfully “executed” (after wrapping a couple of issues up)?


Pleased 4th of July everybody! As common, NBA free company is maintaining us on our toes, making us verify our telephones throughout cookouts and fireworks shows. We nonetheless have two main conditions to resolve with Jaylen Brown’s assumed super-max extension and deciding on what to do with restricted free agent Grant Williams. (For at the moment’s dialogue we’re glazing over minimal signings and finish of the rotation roster strikes.)

There’s plenty of instructions the workforce might theoretically go, together with making franchise altering trades – maybe even getting concerned within the Damian Lillard sweepstakes. Nevertheless, it appears most probably that Brown and the Celtics will announce his signing shortly. Then there’s a practical world the place the workforce decides to blow previous the 2nd apron and signal Grant Williams for someplace at or above the MLE (or maybe matching a proposal from a cap area workforce).

That might be an inexpensive win-now method the place we “go for it” with the Jays, Porzingis, and a loaded roster behind them. If it doesn’t work out, the workforce can be confronted with restrictions on the right way to make additional adjustments subsequent summer time. However that may be price it for an opportunity to win all of it this yr.

On paper that’s nonetheless a loaded workforce that has extra roster steadiness than final yr’s workforce did. They lose Good’s playmaking and protection, however achieve a proficient large man shooter that may defend on the rim. It would imply a shift in type of play, specifically on protection, however maybe that’s what the workforce must unlock the perfect model of themselves.

There are some caveats. Whereas everybody understands that this can be a enterprise, there’s a human component that might be a problem to handle. Is Malcolm Brogdon happy with being almost-traded? Is Payton Pritchard happy with not being traded? Does Grant Williams really feel slighted by the restricted free company negotiations? Does Porzingis mesh properly with the workforce? How a lot will Marcus Good be missed?

So the query I pose to you, pricey readers, is are you happy with the workforce in the event that they merely pay our free brokers what it takes to get them to remain and thank Wyc and firm for signing large checks? Or would you favor to see them go in a special path?
