Report: Celtics still 'very active' in looking at free agents, sign-and-trade market

The Boston Celtics have already added a couple of pieces to their roster, as they have signed point guard Kemba Walker and center Enes Kanter to contracts during the first 24 hours of free agency.

However, they are reportedly just getting started.

According to Steve Bulpett of The Boston Herald, the Celtics may not be done making moves and are remaining "very active" on the free agent and trade markets. Here's are Bulpett's exact words from a recent piece.

The Celtic roster you see today will not be all that you see in the middle of October. The club is not done making moves, and according to teams around the league that we spoke to Monday, the C’s are very active in trying to see what free agents may still shake loose and what kinds of sign-and-trade deals could free up a better chunk of money to attract a large person.

This would certainly make sense, as the Celtics did lose quite a bit this offseason and are particularly thin in the frontcourt. While adding Walker and Kanter were solid moves, the team has also lost Kyrie Irving, Al Horford, Terry Rozier, and (likely) Marcus Morris. While the team still has solid depth, they may be looking for an opportunity to add another proven player to their roster.

For the time being, it's unclear who the team would target. And furthermore, how they might acquire more talent. The additions of Walker and Kanter have just about capped out the Celtics, so they may have to get creative to add more talent.

Still, Danny Ainge and the front office will certainly continue to look for options to improve the team. It will be interesting to see if they end up doing anything in the near future to fortify their roster.

How tall is Tacko Fall? Celtics center disputes his official NBA measurement

How tall is Tacko Fall? Celtics center disputes his official NBA measurement

So, just how tall is Celtics' fan favorite and fast-growing legend Tacko Fall?

7-foot-7? 7-6? 7-5?

All those heights have been used in stories on the rookie, who will split time between Boston and the Celtics' Gatorade affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, this season.

When the NBA 2K20 video game used Fall as an example of NBA players "shrinking" after their official measurements are listed on rosters, the rookie begged to differ.

Give Tacko the inch, even without shoes?

Whatever the height, Fall making like Tom Brady in a Red Claws practice Thursday is a must-watch: 

As is the big man's bowling prowess with his teammates this week at Marcus Smart's charity event.

Injury updates on Theis (finger) and Williams (ankle) on eve of Celtics' trip west

Injury updates on Theis (finger) and Williams (ankle) on eve of Celtics' trip west

BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics may not have to dig as deep into their big man well for their game Friday night against the Golden State Warriors. 

Daniel Theis and Robert Williams III, both unable to play in the 140-133 win over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, are listed as questionable for the game Friday vs. Golden State in San Francisco, the opener of the C's five-game trip west. 

Theis was unable to play due to a sprained little finger in his right hand.

Following Boston’s win over the Dallas Mavericks, Theis told NBC Sports Boston that he dislocated his finger twice and popped it back in place both times. 

“I just try to help the team any way I can,” Theis said. 

Williams missed the Wizards game due to a sore right ankle that has progressed but it remains to be seen if it has healed to the point where the 6-foot-10 big man can play Friday.

Boston has won nine in a row and the one bright spot with all the Celtics injuries at center is it has allowed others an opportunity to play a more significant role. 

Enes Kanter got his second start of the season against Washington and will likely be in the starting lineup on Friday night if Theis can’t play. 

Against Washington, Kanter had a near double-double of 13 points and nine rebounds. 

Boston also got nice contributions from rookie center Vincent Poirier, who had three points, four rebounds and three assists in nine minutes.
