The Boston Celtics may have had a rough go at it during this past season, but the summer of 2021 has gotten off to a hot start as they embark on the road back to respectability.
After going just 36-36 during the regular season and being bounced in the first round of the playoffs by means of gentleman’s sweep against the Brooklyn Nets, the C’s front office took little time to snap into action after their offseason was kicked off rather prematurely.
In his first act as President of Basketball Operations, Brad Stevens made a salary-shedding move that sent Kemba Walker to the Oklahoma City Thunder for a return package centered around Al Horford.
Soon after, he managed to involve himself in yet another noteworthy move, this time by agreeing to terms with Ime Udoka to serve as his replacement on the sidelines as the newest head coach for the Boston Celtics.
Now, after such a riveting start to his tenure running the show, fans are seemingly at the edge of their seats, waiting for any semblance of information relating to another transaction Stevens could have the team partaking in.
Though rumblings have been rather quiet on the side of the Cs, this has not stopped the media from going into a frenzy of discussing players the franchise could theoretically look to trade for this offseason.
Perhaps the name that has received the most attention by fans when it comes to being linked to the Celtics is Washington Wizards star, Bradley Beal, who, according to Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer, would ‘welcome a trade’ to Boston.

At the very least the Celtics should consider getting involved in talks pertaining to the guard, be it in an effort to either acquire him or to serve as a third party. Today, we discuss 2 blockbusters Stevens and co. should consider pursuing involving Bradley Beal:
