Does Doc Rivers and Terry Rozier moving teams affect the Celtics?

Doc Rivers is the new head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. The Miami Heat has acquired Terry Rozier. Both are former members of the Boston Celtics and now are with rival teams. It’s fitting that both players moved to rival teams during rivals week. However, with Milwaukee and Miami both looking to contend this season, the potential dynamic shift in the Eastern Conference is interesting.

In a recent episode of the “Green With Envy” podcast, hosts Adam Taylor and Will Weir discussed both moves. They examined whether Rivers can improve the Bucks’ struggling defense and get more production out of Damian Lillard. And whether Rozier can help improve a Heat offense that has stuttered to begin the season.

Neither move is likely to impact the balance of power in the Eastern Conference significantly, but it does give both teams a boost, and that could impact the way the seeding shakes out at the end of the season.
