Do the Celtics need to add another rotation big?

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ Let’s discuss the Boston Celtics big man rotation. We have a ton of great content planned for the rest of the offseason here on CelticsBlog. Even so, I wanted to start a series of discussion topics on the Celtics that purposely avoid a specific trade rumor topic that has been dominating the news cycles lately. So, here’s the first one: The Celtics currently have Al Horford and Robert Williams III as potential starting level centers. Reports out of Boston indicate that the team is high on Luke Kornet’s potential. The team also signed...

Can Luke Kornet be the first center off the bench?

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Luke Kornet is poised to take a huge jump in role this season if Boston don’t bring in an additional big man.
