Where do the Boston Celtics stand after a summer of trades and free agent signings?

The Boston Celtics have experienced significant changes during the 2023 offseason as they embrace head coach Joe Mazzulla’s coaching style. This approach places emphasis on 3-point shooting and efficient ball movement. The team’s goal is to create a sustainable, analytics-driven playstyle that maximizes scoring potential and improves their odds of success.

On the defensive end, the Celtics are making adjustments as well. While they still value switchability to some extent, they are moving away from a full switch-everything approach. This allows them to better handle certain matchups, especially against dominant post players like Joel Embiid or Giannis Antetokounmpo, where switching might prove challenging.

Host of the “Locked On Celtics” podcast John Karalis linked up with guest Tom Westerholm to talk about Boston’s projected style of play based on the moves they made this offseason.

Check out the clip embedded above to hear their take on what the Celtics might play like next season.
