With the rest of the NBA currently in a holding position while the Brooklyn Nets try to find new homes for Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the Boston Celtics pulled off something of a minor coup in landing Indiana Pacers point guard Malcolm Brogdon for a protected first-round pick and five non-rotation players.

Now, the team that represented the league’s Eastern Conference in the 2022 NBA Finals is even stronger with the addition while other teams stood still in the East or even got worse. Only the Milwaukee Bucks ought to be better than they were when last season ended through the improved state of Khris Middleton’s health.

Given the situation in the West isn’t any clearer, does that make the Celtics clear title favorites in the wake of the Brogdon trade?

The hosts of the CLNS Media “A-List” podcast took stock of the league’s likely contenders in their most recent episode — check out the clip embedded above to see what they think about the league hierarchy heading into the 2022-23 season.
