After failing to make serious impact in the NBA postseason, the Boston Celtics will look to reshape their roster around Jayson Tatum in the offseason.
According to Brian Robb of MassLive, Boston could look into taking advantage of Kyle Anderson’s expiring contract and work on a potential deal with Memphis.
“Celtics have had their eye on Anderson for quite some time according to league sources. With Memphis having plenty of younger talent on the wing, they may opt to simply add some more assets for the 27-year-old wing entering a contract year. Anderson’s improvement as a 3-point shooter last season, along with his passing, would provide the skillset that makes him a nice fit for Boston.”
The former UCLA star averaged 12.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and a career-best 3.6 assists per game in 69 starts for Memphis last year.
Anderson is on the last year of a four-year, $37.2 million contract and is set to earn $9.9 million through the 2021-22 season campaign.
