Adam and Josh provide your primer for the remainder of the offseason. They first review the impact of the Celtics losing lead assistant coach Will Hardy who Danny Ainge poached to be the new head coach of the Utah Jazz. Josh speaks from his experience on a coaching bench about the pros and cons of hiring a veteran head coach as a replacement and how easy it is to promote from within.
The guys discuss the drafting of JD Davidson and spend far too long discussing Summer League before getting to the meat of the offseason options. Adam provides an overview of the options at the Celtics disposal to bring in free agents and trade for players without giving up current rotation players. He also gives an overview of the type of player fans can expect the Celtics to desire and which ones they likely won’t.
