“I’ve heard a lot of people say I’d be the perfect fit there, that they need a guy like me with my skill set,” said newest Boston Celtics point guard Malcolm Brogdon of what he’d heard about his new team before being dealt there last week in conversation with ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on the latest episode of the “Woj” podcast.

The move came as a bit of a surprise for Brogdon given “Boston was not one of the teams” that showed interest in the former Pacers guard earlier in the process, but the Atlanta native is “excited about the opportunity” to play for a team he sees as a contender, even if it means taking a step back into a sixth-man role.

“I really want to get back to winning on a high level,” offered Brogdon. “I want to win a championship. So, whatever I can sacrifice to get back to that championship level, I’m willing to do it.”

Music to the ears of those concerned the former Indiana floor general might disrupt the chemistry of the starters carrying the team to the 2022 Finals, no doubt. “I think it really is a testament to the Boston Celtics and how much they want to win,” he explained.

“They’re willing to possibly have a guy that they’re paying $20 million a year come off the bench, that’s a sixth man try to help them win a championship.”

Watch the clip embedded above to hear what the duo has to say on the matter.
