For the first time in what felt like forever, there was actually some Boston Celtics news on Tuesday night. The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported that the Cs had their eye on a pair of wings to fill out the back end of their rotation.

According to Charania, Boston will meet with both T.J. Warren and Lamar Stevens this week.

On top of Warren and Stevens, HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto revealed that Louis King is also in the mix for one of the team’s two remaining roster spots.

“Free agent forward Louis King will meet and work out for the Boston Celtics this week, league sources told HoopsHype,” Scotto said in a tweet. “King recently worked out with other veterans for the Golden State Warriors. Last season, King was a two-way player for the Philadelphia 76ers.”

Boston has been sitting on the pair of roster spots for a good amount of time now. They waived forward Justin Champagnie at the beginning of the month, and haven’t made any moves since. However, it’s been reported that they’d like to bring back veteran big man Blake Griffin in one of their remaining slots.

With all of the moving parts this summer, many fans have wondered what President of Basketball Operations Brad Stevens would add to the already-competitive Celtics roster. Well, it looks like they’ve got their answer — depth at the wing position. All three of Boston’s rumored targets can provide that, but which one would be the best addition?

Let’s have a look and rank them, shall we?
