The Boston Celtics’ biggest offseason move this season was a heist, as team president Brad Stevens and the Celtics organization pulled off trading five bench players and a protected 2023 first-round draft pick for veteran guard Malcolm Brogdon. The move is going to cost the Celtics owners quite a bit as the team was over the luxury tax when picking up Brogdon’s $22.6 million cap hit, resulting in one of the NBA’s largest payrolls at more than $170 million for 2022-23.

Not only is this move providing more proven depth for the Celtics, it is also evidence that the front office believes that this team can return to the NBA Finals.

In the clip embedded below of the CLNS Media “Celtics Beat” podcast, WEEI’s Brian Barrett and cohost Evan Valenti reflect how the Malcolm Brogdon trade shows the Celtics are all in.
