Boston Celtics: Breaking down why Cs should pursue Paul Millsap
It would appear as though the Boston Celtics have wrapped up their offseason with the signing of Dennis Schroder, but there are still a few holes for the team left to fill.
First off, the Cs lack playable fours on the roster, possessing Grant Williams and Jabari Parker as their backup power forwards behind their star player, Jayson Tatum.
Before they signed Schroder, it was plausible to assume Brad Stevens was lining up a trade to fulfill this need, but with the Boston Celtics into the tax and up against the NBA’s cap apron, it’s unlikely a deal gets struck before the start of the season.
However, not all hope is lost for the Cs to make another move given the club’s short and long-term goals.
Boston’s management knows it needs playable depth to compete, especially depth behind their best player. Still, they also know better than to throw multiple-year deals at backup fours on the market with Bradley Beal looming in the distance.
By the way, Boston’s offseason is shaping up and there are two choices for Stevens to make: either he sheds some of the salaries he acquired in Kris Dunn or Josh Richardson, or he finds a backup willing to take a minimum.
But who could be better than Jabari Parker and Grant Williams while also making minimum money?
Paul Millsap is the perfect candidate to take the job in my opinion.
This article will take a deep dive into what Millsap can give the Boston Celtics and why he’s worth a deal and a roster spot.
