The Boston Celtics traded for Jrue Holiday from the Milwaukee Bucks, giving up Robert Williams III and Malcolm Brogdon two first round picks. Holiday is a two-time All-Defensive First Team member and a two-time All-Star, and a versatile guard who can play both on and off the ball.
The trade is a surprise because the Celtics were already one of the best teams in the league, and Holiday makes them even better — but according to recent reporting from MassLive’s Brian Robb, the team might have more moves left to make. Per the MassLive reporter, “Boston is not done tweaking the roster after acquiring Holiday with training camp on the horizon this week.”
After dealing away Williams as part of the outgoing contracts to land Holiday, that makes sense given the shallow state of the Celtics’ frontcourt.

According to Robb, the “timing of subsequent moves will be dependent on a few factors,” presumably at least some of which rides on how players like Neemias Queta and Wenyan Gabriel look in training camp and preseason play.
