NBA 2020-21: All you want to know about the salaries, additions, and depth chart of the Boston Celtics

NBA 2020-21: It is less than a month for the NBA 2020-21 season to start. The NBA Free Agency is still on but most of the top NBA Free Agents have signed. We will study the Boston Celtics roster here.

With the season set to start on the 22nd of December, and the NBA preseason games starting from the 11th of December, let us look at the Boston Celtics’ roster.

For the 14th overall pick in the NBA Draft 2020, the Boston Celtics select Aaron Nesmith. They have selected Payton Pritchard in their 26th pick. They have traded their 30th pick to the Memphis Grizzlies. With their 47th pick, Boston selected Yam Madar.

The Celtics wanted to patch up the few weak spots in an otherwise watertight rotation. They already have a young squad full of talented players like Jason Tatum, Marcus Smart, and Jayleen Brown.

While they tried to trade upwards in the draft, no other teams were interested in doing so. The Boston Celtics still get a very good pick in Aaron Nesmith.
