Even though last season ended just two weeks ago, the NBA is ready to rev back up again, perhaps as soon as December. Here are a few Celtics-related notes and thoughts about where things stand. It’s hard to believe that the NBA Draft is just three weeks away.
The biggest question of the Boston Celtics offseason is Gordon Hayward’s decision regarding his $34.2 million player option. He could simply opt-in, he could opt-out and re-sign a long-term deal to stay in Boston, or he could simply opt-out and leave. Leaving would be bit of a shock considering there aren’t many teams with cap space this offseason and Boston is better than all of them.
If, by some act of god or your preferred high power, these obscenely rich group of people who want to spend your money on a new stadium happen to hire smart people to run your favorite sports team, you’re lucky. And what if everything goes wrong? Fans have some recourse.
