The Boston Celtics significantly deepened their bench in a very busy offseason to date with additions who could see time in a sixth-man role like Josh Richardson, Dennis Schroder, and Al Horford, with young players like Payton Pritchard, Romeo Langford, and Aaron Nesmith all reasonable threats to force their way into a major role in the rotation as well.
With so much talent, it will be a process finding exactly the right combination of players and minutes, with some serious potential to find one of their players in the running for the NBA’s 2021-22 Sixth Man of the Year award.
With a recent top finisher in that race on their roster and several realistic options to join the fray, check out the discussion of the possibility of that particular bit of hardware getting awarded to a Celtic this season on this clip from the latest episode of the CLNS Media podcast “Winning Plays.”
Watch the video embedded above to hear what hosts Brian Robb and Rich Lavine think about the chances of a Sixth Man of the Year being crowned in Boston this season.
