Boston Celtics Team Needs Heading Into the Offseason

Boston Celtics Free Agents

Here is a list of the players who are upcoming Boston Celtics free agents that will either need to be re-signed or replaced.

  • Tremont Waters, PG (RFA)
  • Evan Fournier, SG
  • Semi Ojeleye, SF
  • Luke Kornet, PF/C
  • Tacko Fall, C (RFA)

Of the upcoming free agents for the Boston Celtics, fans will argue there are only two that should be re-signed: Evan Fournier and Tacko Fall. The rest do not need to be brought back. Boston also needs to be careful for the 2022 offseason, when Marcus Smart and Robert Williams III could potentially hit free agency.

Boston Celtics Draft Targets

Terrence Jones Jr.

Terrence Jones Jr. is a high-flying prospect who projects well, if he can develop a jump shot. He shot 82% from the free throw line at Texas Tech, so there is potential for him to develop a consistent jumper. As a shooting guard-small forward hybrid, he offers flexibility to cover for both Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum off the bench, alongside Aaron Nesmith.

Herb Jones

Herb Jones is a player out of Alabama who could have an immediate impact for the Boston Celtics, in a similar way as Payton Pritchard. Jones excels at slashing to the rim, but needs to work on his jumper. He’s a tremendous athlete and versatile defender who will certainly be there for the Celtics at No. 45. While many are overlooking him, Jones has upside.
