The Boston Celtics are committed to rebuilding the health and relationship of Malcolm Brogdon, 30.
In a recent interview with CNSL, Celtics head coach Joe Mazzula discussed how he perceives Brogdon’s healing process.
“온라인바카라 We’ll see where we are and where we need to go,” Mazzula said of the simultaneous healing and listening process. “We’ve had some conversations with him, but at the same time, we understand that it’s a past situation and we’re going to move forward as much as we can as the healing process progresses.”
Before Boston parted ways with Marcus Smart as part of the trade to acquire Kristaps Porzingis, Brogdon almost found himself in a new city this summer. The original quid pro quo for Porzingis was for Brogdon to head to the Los Angeles Clippers, but the Clippers scuttled the deal 11 hours after it was agreed upon. In response, Boston shifted its focus to the Memphis Grizzlies.
Brogdon, who ended up staying in Boston, hasn’t commented on his current state of mind or how he took the trade news. However, it’s clear that the Celtics will need Brogdon to step up in order to compete for a championship after losing their smartest player.
Considered one of the most reliable guards in the league, Brogdon accepted a bench role for the first time in his career last season and served as a scorer. He did so well that he was named the 2023 Sixth Man of the Year.
Furthermore, Brodan has led by example off the bench with a number of good deeds, and his injury history means he’ll likely be a sixth man again next season. Smart’s spot will be filled by Derrick White.
Without a solid bench scorer, Jayson Tatum’s leadership burden, and a backup option, Boston will need Brodie to step up.
