Now that the Celtics have their management level positions sorted out, they can turn their attention to the roster itself. Given Brad Stevens is a first time president of basketball operations, and Ime Udoka is a first time head coach, there’s some mystery as to how they’ll proceed with this offseason, given a lack of historical context.
On Tuesday, Celtics governor Wyc Grousbeck joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Felger & Mazz where he discussed – among other things – the next steps the team will take this offseason. He began by pointing out internal contract situations the team will have to decide on.
“There’s three guys that got a lot of minutes that are up for contract renewals or extensions right now,” he mentioned. Highlighting that group is 2021 trade deadline acquisition Evan Fournier. According to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe, the Celtics “feel much better about their chances of re-signing Fournier” after the Kemba Walker trade.
