If there’s one thing to be learned from player movement in the NBA, it’s that nothing is official until it’s truly official.
With that in mind, the Celtics, Grizzlies, and Wizards made sure to cross their respective finish lines following the 2023 NBA Draft, as the Celtics finalized and formally announced their acquisition of center Kristaps Porzingis.
“We are very happy to welcome Kristaps to Boston” Celtics president of basketball operations Brad Stevens said in a statement confirming the move. “He brings a skill set and ability to impact the game that not only fits the needs of our team, but is elite for his position and size. The ability to play to his strengths with any combination of players is unique.”
