With the NBA Playoffs in full swing, that’s the only thing the Boston Celtics should be focused on at the moment. Their goal is to bring an 18th banner to Beantown, and with an impending matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks in front of them, they need to be laser-focused on taking down the reigning champions.

However, the front office has plenty of other things to worry about. The rest of this season is completely out of their hands, at this point. Brad Stevens and the rest of his crew have assembled a great roster and now it’s up to head coach Ime Udoka and the players to do the rest of the work on the court.

But with the offseason coming up, the front office is already gearing up to get busy. The Celtics don’t have a ton of cap space to work with, and most of their roster will still be under contract next year, but they could still look to add a piece or two around the edges. And past that, they still have the NBA Draft to worry about.

Stevens traded Boston’s 2022 first-round pick to the San Antonio Spurs in the trade that landed them Derrick White, but they still have a second-rounder to use. And according to recent reports, they’ve already begun working out potential draftees, one of whom just happens to be a New England college legend.

They were eliminated in the First Four, but before that, they had never had any experience in the postseason. In Kiss’ two years at the school, they combined to go 25-6.
