If you were the Boston Celtics’ President of Basketball Operations and had to choose between one of Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal or Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine to try and turn the Celtics into a superteam, which of the two Eastern Conference stars would you prefer to go after?
One is older and more established (Beal), with the other younger and cheaper with room to grow into his game (LaVine), but both would require a hefty offer from Boston’s front office in even the best potential situation from the Celtics’ perspective. Both can fill up stat sheets with questions about their overall fit and defense alongside Boston’s All-Star wings Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum.
On a new episode of the CLNS Media “A-List” podcast, hosts Kwani A. Lunis and A. Sherrod Blakely break down their views on which of the duo of star guards they would prefer to see on the Celtics’ roster.
They also cover moves made by Boston around the margins, goings-on around players of note not on Celtics roster and more, so watch the clip embedded above to get their perspective on much of the week in Boston and NBA basketball.
