Well we didn’t even have to wait until the start of free agency for NBA teams to start shaking up and trying to improve their roster for the 2021-22 season.
The Boston Celtics I sending Kimbra Walker the number 16 overall pick in this year‘s dress and a second round pick inIn 2025 is here no to the Oklahoma City Thunder that in exchange for Al Horford Moses Brown and a 2023 second round pick.
When he was a quiet before the 20 1920 season in a sign in trade with the Charlotte hornets it was anticipated he could form a big three along with forwards Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. Unfortunately we never got to see that for the most part as injuries not only limited Walker’s time on the court is the only suited up for 99 games for the Celtics in the two seasons he was there but said injuries also Hanford his level of play. Though he he posted far more than respectable numbers of 20.4 and 19.3 ppg in his two seasons in Beantown, we only got to see the electrifying player that we saw in Charlotte in all too short spurts.
In Al Horford, the Celtics are re-acquiring an intelligent players who can help captain them on the defensive end and he can be a hub for them on offense. Even at the age of 34 Horford showed that he can still contribute at a high level, as he averaging 14.2 points, 6.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. He was actually impacting winning more than the Thunder anticipated and/or wanted as they shut Horford down after only 28 games and commenced operation tank.
Horford played for the Celtics from the 2016-17 to 2018-19. He was a vital cog on those clubs and his impact went far beyond the 13.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists he put up.
In Moses Brown, the Celtics have a young energetic big man that has the potential to be a rebounding machine. The 21-year-old I drafted free-agent out of UCLA averaged 8.6 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 21.4 minutes per contest. His arrival and potential ascension could mean the signal we will see a lot less of Tristran Thompson on the court.
