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.
