Once again, Boston Celtics fans can ponder whether the team will use a brand-new traded player exception (TPE) generated by the exit of a player from the Celtics in the offseason, this time veteran shooting guard Evan Fournier. What exactly does Boston get for creating one that was worth burning two second-round picks (albeit one heavily protected)?

Particularly when one considers Fournier himself was traded in exchange for a pair of seconds into a TPE left over from veteran forward Gordon Hayward’s decampment that took draft assets to create as well. On top of the $17.1 million exception from the Fournier sign-and-trade to the New York Knicks, the team has two other TPEs of note.

So what are the Celtics trying to do with all these TPEs? That’s exactly the question asked and answered by Brian Robb and Rich Lavine of the CLNS Media podcast “Winning Plays” on a recent episode.

Watch or listen to the clip embedded above to learn more about how Boston can make use of the new TPE created from the Evan Fournier exit.
