Amid the debate over what the Boston Celtics need to focus on as they put together a new iteration of the squad that went to the 2022 NBA Finals with an intention of winning it all this time around, one aspect of the team that could easily help the Celtics in that regard is increased scoring ability on the wing.

While stars Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum may be young and on the rise, they cannot carry such a heavy load as they did throughout the 2021-22 NBA season and expect to be able to compete at their best against the most worthy opponents coming out of the West — and that scenario only happens in the first place if they have the horses to get back to the Finals.

Should Boston go all in on trading for or signing wing scoring? Or are there other, more pressing needs for the team?

Watch the clip embedded above to hear what the hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Beat” podcast have to say about this issue, and see if you concur.
