I think theyâ€™re a sneaky team what could move up 1 or 2 spots or stay at the 7th. Also getting Schroeder for 5 million is a **** steal. The guy can flat out play, like Simmons people just let the playoff narratives take hold instead of evaluating players objectively. Stevens shouldnâ€™t have gotten his GM spot, perfect example of failing upwards. I think Udoka will be fine. Heâ€™s coaching a team that has played with each other for the last 4 seasons? Boston will be fine.
He's not Stevens, that's really all that matters in my mind. His play calling will probably be worse, all things considered.
Schroeder's on a good contract, but he's gunning for a payday. That, with a new coach could spell issues if he's unhappy.
The east is so hard to project this year, lots of landmines with all the turnover in rosters. Not to mention it's two years of shortened offseason turnarounds. Rested teams will have a big advantage, injuries should be a factor. Depth will help smooth things out compared to top heavy or older teams. Missing the playoffs last year, might actually help us this year.
