Celtics Trade Division Rival for $56 Million 3&D Wing

The Celtics appear to have prioritized wing depth this offseason. They signed Jordan Walsh, Dalano Banton, and Oshae Brissett. 

Shams Charania of The Athletic claimed that they worked out T.J. Warren and Lamar Stevens on August 22. All of those options are unproven or no longer effective.

Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report discussed why the Celtics may consider signing Brooklyn Nets wing Dorian Finney-Smith.

“If Boston could afford a three-and-D wing, they could spell the Jays and play with them in smaller, switchier lineups.

If last season's shooting struggles (33.7 percent) don't repeat (his 38.9 percent splash rate over the three preceding campaigns gives hope), Finney-Smith fits that mold better than anyone. Buckley wrote.

Before being traded to the Nets, Finney-Smith had a 35.7% lifetime three-point percentage and 35.5% from distance with the Dallas Mavericks in 2022-23.

A four-year, $55.5 million contract is entering its second year for Finney-Smith.

Ben Stinar of Sports Illustrated explained why the Celtics may want to consider point guard Michael Carter-Williams for one of their last roster spots.
