Jay King of The Athletic reports that the Boston Celtics do not intend to sign any of the well-known veteran big players who are still available on the open market. This information comes from the Celtics’ most recent meeting with general manager Danny Ainge.
It would appear that players like Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge, DeMarcus Cousins, and Hassan Whiteside are no longer on the list of possible targets as a result of this development.
King also mentioned that the Celtics are likely going to look to add a young big man to their roster for training camp. Earlier in the offseason, King reported that the team is holding something of a competition to fill out the remaining roster spots, so King mentioned that the Celtics are likely going to look to add a young big man. On September 20, Bruno Caboclo was released from his contract, and it is likely that a huge will take his position. At this time, Noah Vonleh is the only frontcourt player that is signed to a training camp deal.
Robert Williams is scheduled to have arthroscopic surgery performed on his knee, which will keep him out of action for four to six weeks. It is highly possible that he will be out for the first week or two of the regular season as a result of this timeframe, which will throw the frontcourt depth chart for the Celtics into complete turmoil. Given that Danilo Gallinari is also sidelined with an injury, it seems likely that Boston will attempt to add extra big man depth.
When it comes to their signings so far this summer, Boston has placed an emphasis on bringing in younger players. They have brought in Jake Layman (28), Justin Jackson (27), and Denzel Valentine (27), in addition to Vonleh, who is 27 years old (28). Although none of them are young in the way that the NBA typically defines “young,” all three are under the age of 30 and still have plenty to show in the league.
Due to the fact that the team has not yet officially signed Brodric Thomas, the Boston Bruins now have two spots available on their roster for the training camp.
