The NBA complimentary company duration hasn’t been too kind to the Boston Celtics. The legendary franchise lost out on its effort to trade for Jrue Vacation, and today, lost Gordon Hayward to the Charlotte Hornets. The group got an important win today though, landing Tristan Thompson.

Thompson, who was taken No. 4 overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2011, has actually never bet another franchise. He won the NBA Finals with LeBron James and business in 2016.

Regardless of his long NBA profession, Thompson is simply 29 years old. He’s likewise coming off among his best career seasons, publishing a profession high 12 points along with 10.1 rebounds per video game.

If the Boston Celtics have actually been missing something, it is a true interior presence. Enes Kanter, who was simply traded back to the Portland Path Blazers where he played a few seasons ago, is a skilled offending huge, but is not a good defender. Young huge Robert Williams III is still unproven, and Daniel Theis is very much an offense-focus gamer. This is a great add for Boston. ESPN’s Kendrick Perkins presumed as to call it the “missing piece to the puzzle.”

That may be overemphasizing things a bit. Hayward was injured for much of his Celtics tenure, but when healthy last season, he showed glimpses of being the gamer he was with the Utah Jazz.

This relocation may provide the Celtics a major shock though. WIth Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, and Jaylen Brown, they have among the much better trios in the Eastern Conference. We know that Tristan Thompson can play important minutes inside for a champion team.

The Boston Celtics was up to the Miami Heat in 6 video games in the Eastern Conference Finals earlier this fall. We’ll see if Brad Stevens can lastly get the team over the bulge in an enhancing East this coming season.
