The offseason is here for the Boston Celtics, and in just a couple of months, they will begin the process of putting next year’s team together. We will take a look at the current Celtics and try to figure out what to do with each of them. We continue today with Jared Sullinger.
Those two words might as well be tattooed onto Jared Sullinger’s forehead.
