The Boston Celtics last season underachieved, finishing at the 7th seed and getting bounced in the first round of the playoffs in 5 games. The problem was, the team had no depth when it came to supporting superstars, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. However, with the change in front office, Brad Stevens has a plan in place to improve this team for the better this off-season.
Danny Ainge was a really good President of Basketball Operations for the Boston Celtics. However, with the game changing and his health becoming a factor, everyone felt it was time to step down, opening the door for Brad Stevens to take on a new role. Stevens has so far done a pretty good job and he is not done.
First, he hired a new Head Coach that everyone was on board with in Ime Udoka, former Brooklyn Nets Assistant. Then, he traded away Kemba Walker to OKC for veteran forward and former Celtic, Al Horford. Recently, he has traded away Tristian Thompson, a player who didn’t exceed expectation with the team, for Point Guard Kris Dunn.
However, the best of all of the deals so far, was trading for 27 year old, Josh Richardson. This move gives more depth and a player who can straight up play. Stevens has shown he is not afraid of the role he is in. Reports have come out that he is eyeing free agents that could help this team such as Point Guard Patty Mills, another veteran player that would benefit this team.
The Dallas Mavericks are finalizing trading G/F Josh Richardson to the Boston Celtics, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Richardson is exercising his $11.6 million player option for the 2021-22 season for the deal.

It is encouraging to see as a fan because this team was suppose to be a championship competing team already. The fact Brad Stevens is continuing to make moves this off-season and show he isn’t afraid to get rid of guys is a good sign for the team. He is showing that this team is Tatum’s and Brown’s, and he will do whatever he needs to do to make them happy.
