The Boston Celtics have some new faces on their roster as of this week as the team loads up on talent in pursuit of a league-record 18th banner in 2023, and chief among those faces is former Indiana Pacers point guard Malcolm Brogdon. The Atlanta native was dealt to the Celtics for veteran big man Daniel Theis, reserve small forward Aaron Nesmith, and a trio of deep rotation prospects in a trade fans hope was enough to push them over the edge in their title hunt.
But what exactly does Brogdon bring to the table? Ball handling, passing, shooting, and scoring to start, as well as the mentality of a proven leader on and off the court.
If you are not especially familiar with the Virginia product’s game, or just want a glace at how Brogdon was playing for the Pacers last season, check out the highlights of his play for Indiana in the 2021-22 season courtesy of YouTuber Tomasz Kordylewski in the clip embedded below.
