The Boston Celtics are looking to hang their 18th Banner in the fall of 2024, and luckily, they've have put together the ideal cast to accomplish those goals.

Kristaps Porzingis and Jrue Holiday joining the team has given them the best starting five in the NBA. Their firepower combined with Derrick White, Jaylen Brown, and Jayson Tatum gives them five players who can score 25 points on any given.

The moves have certainly helped the starting five but have left the bench with improvement needs.

Juan Toscano-Anderson an ideal glue guy target for the Boston Celtics

The Cs truly need a glue guy who can come off the bench and fulfill multiple roles for the team. The perfect player for that spot is former NBA Champion Juan Toscano-Anderson. Humbled by ho-hum stints with the Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz, JTA played a huge part on the Warriors roster that won the NBA Championship in 2022.

That role was defined by shooting and defense. In 2021 he also shot a great 40% from the three-point line which was his career best. You can only imagine on a team like the Celtics with all the great players that they have he will find himself with a lot of open looks and can produce similar shooting numbers. 

The Cs need Toscano-Anderson's archetype for the second unit to provide the understated contributions to complement the star power of Boston's top six. He already has the experience of winning on the highest level which is something this team would greatly benefit from.

His value is not always going to be shown in the stat sheet, but anyone who watches him play will see how his hard work and efforts will lead the Celtics to many big wins.

And potentially an NBA Championship. He's done it before...
