Default 2017-18 Boston Celtics Official Thread

Us C's fans like to talk and it's clear the 16-17 season is over. It was a huge success. Let's use this to start talking about the future and we can share stories of misery over the final 2 games in the other thread. To start the conversation I'll share some thoughts I posted in another thread regarding my thoughts on how I hope the team proceeds. They have so many options and I'm sure many of us have differing opinions.

Build around Brown at the 3 and he can flex to the 2. That's the start. You go from there.

Players with potential to stay for 3-5 years from today: Crowder, Bradley and the players mentioned above.

Horford traded after 2019.

Olynyk, Johnson, Jerebko gone after they lose to Cleveland and replaced with lower cost options or stashed players.

I like the way you think.

The next three seasons are going to determine if this team is a championship contender or just another team that tries but falls short (90's Jazz and Sun, early 2000s Nets, recent Hawks, etc.). There have already been multiple threads addressing several questions related to next steps. This just provides a single place to have those conversations.

Plus with all the young players there will be significant impact the hobby as well. Will Jaylen Brown become an all-star? What if Marcus Smart learns to shoot? Can Rozier become a legitimate starter? Will Fultz et. al. be the real deal or flame out? Lots of money could be made or lost here.

Until Lebron retires no team in the East has a shot.

And with prospects taking 3-5 years to reach potential these days I think the Celtics and Sixers are in great shape. Marcus Smart is only 22 and he will be a seasoned veteran on this team when the season starts.

Agreed, hoping we keep the pick and draft Fultz. Really can't envision us trading it

Just my opinion, but your best bet is to sell high on IT now and trade him.

The future, as mentioned in the OP, is a combo of Fultz, Rozier, and Smart

They are going to look to add two legit players through FA and trades. It will likely be a crazy offseason. They are poised to go big though.

Forget the proposed trade... Marky Mark and Jimmy Butler are best friends? That's the story here...

Ahhhh. Another off season where the Celtics will be involved in every FA out there but will probably land none.

Marky mark should focus on the transformers and let Ainge run the team.

Nets 2018 pick and a bunch of stuff, but no way on Fultz

I'm loving the Blake Griffin rumors. 2+a player option? Count me in! A hope Hayward doesn't come. I question Brad's ability to develop young talent and a "teacher's pet" who plays the same position as Jaylen Brown is no bueno in my book. I'm all for bringing in talent but the big picture needs to be on development for the future.

I honestly would be happy if they go into 17/18 with close to the same squad plus Fultz and 1 or 2 stashed players.
