Forsberg: Five bigs the Celtics should consider in 2020 NBA Draft originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Ask a Celtics fan what the team’s most pressing need is this offseason and the answer will almost certainly be a big man.

And despite all the good that Boston’s ragtag group of big men did — and particularly Theis — throughout the 2020 season, there's a very vocal group of fans that remain adamant the team needs an upgrade at that position.
