I see big things for him after the Trade Deadline. I think Morris has a good chance of going at the Deadline for a true big.
Yep, Semi was a bad offensive player last season. He got thrown into the fire before he was really ready but I think he looked confident in Summer League and I expect he's improved. When everyone's healthy, he's still not part of the regular rotation but that just goes to show how much depth this team will have.
I actually think they like Semi and will keep him around. He's going to be one of the key bench guys when Tatum/Brown are running things. He's going to in the Morris role at some point..
That or an injury are the most likely ways Semi stays a part of the rotation. Barring that, there are way too many wings in his way for SF minutes and Horford, Baynes, Morris, and Theis are all in front of him for big man minutes.
Yeah, this year there are just too many ahead of him at both forward spots. Morris and Theis are pretty natural 4's, and Hayward and Tatum are prob 3's...leaves Semi on the 3rd string/11th man.
But after this season, it's all open, right? I sort of see Ojele in the same spot/role as Morris and Theis, but aren't all 3 free agents after this year?
Morris and Theis yes. Semi has a team option the following 2 seasons and given his defensive abilities and how much the Celtics will be hunting for cheap deals I'd bet on them picking up that option.
