Celtics look poised to stand pat on backup big man for now

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports The expiration of the Celtics’ trade exception, lack of activity in what remains of free agency, emphasis on small ball and a positive assessment of Luke Kornet point toward Boston entering the season with a thin big man rotation. The Celtics knew what they had in Daniel Theis. Lukewarm as that compliment may be towards the veteran big man — and as unevenly as his return to Boston progressed through his NBA Finals benching — Theis built up so much rapport with the core members of the Celtics over nearly five seasons that his...

Mfiondu Kabengele passes his first audition

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports The 24-year-old big man stood out in Boston’s Summer League loss against the Miami Heat. There’s no such thing as a perfect roster — no matter how much talent you have littered throughout your fifteen available spots, there’s always a gap somewhere, whether that is positional, size, or specific skillset. For the Boston Celtics, their biggest area of need right now is an additional center.
