Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics have gotten through the offseason, training camp, and now the preseason, which leaves only one thing left for them to do – make the most out of their 2021-22 season.

While there may be many different opinions on who the Boston Celtics should consider targeting, we at HH feel there are 3 who should be high on the team’s radar:

Boston Celtics free agent option No. 1) DeMarcus Cousins

Long have we been asking for a Boogie signing in Beantown and, though he may not be what he once was, the free agent still is perceived as a low-cost option for a team that could use for center depth and, with the injury-riddled Robert Williams III’s newest ailment coupled with Al Horford’s high-end age range, perhaps the Boston Celtics could be more inclined to stockpile the position than we previously thought.

Just a few years removed from being one of the premier big men in the entire NBA at his peak, DeMarcus Cousins boasts career averages of 20.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.2 blocks on 46 percent shooting from the floor and 33 percent shooting from deep.

Splitting time between the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers last season, predominantly in a bench role, the 6-11 center put up averages of 8.9 points, 6.4 boards, and 1.9 assists on 43 percent shooting from the floor and 35 percent shooting from deep, though his shooting splits jumped significantly to 54 percent from the floor and 42 percent from deep when playing with the more competent Clips.
