Let’s review: The Celtics center rotation started out as a committee process. That was working surprisingly well until a rash of injuries impacted the team.
Down two centers the Celtics are scrambling for options. As if that isn’t enough, the Christmas Day game in Toronto may happen without the services of Enes Kanter due to passport issues.
So here’s an open ended question to the collective wisdom of our blog readers. What would you do in the near and long term about the center position?
Some options include bringing up Tacko Fall, going with more small-ball options (Grant Williams? Semi Ojeleye?), or perhaps pursuing a small scale trade for a center. I suppose it is possible that they could go for a bigger name center but generally speaking the bigger names come with bigger contracts and there’s nobody with a big contract that I would want to give up to plug in at that position.
So give us some creative ideas (or non-creative if you like). What should the Celtics do about the center position?
