The Boston Celtics are back on the court after a summer of what feels like top-to-bottom change.
With Danny Ainge retired and out of frame as the team’s longtime president of basketball operations, head coach Brad Stevens moved out of his role and into Ainge’s post, and wasted no time putting his fingerprints on the franchise.
In as Stevens’ replacement as the C’s coach is Ime Udoka — and with a boatload of help for Udoka — and with a ton of shifting around of the Celtics’ potential complementary pieces beyond the obvious Big 3 of Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, and Jaylen Brown. But before the Celts can build that cast in an attempt to return to the Eastern Conference Finals (at the very least), they’ll have to whittle it down from a 20-person training camp full of options.
