What Blake Griffin signing means for Celtics roster options
By deciding to add Blake Griffin to a one-year guaranteed contract on Friday,
the Celtics made the first significant change to their roster during training camp.
The announcement follows the Celtics' recent loss of numerous big men and forwards to injuries.
Rob Williams will likely be sidelined until 2023 while he recovers from knee surgery,
Danilo Gallinari is anticipated to miss the entire season due to a torn ACL, and Luke Kornet will be sidelined for the next two weeks
The Celtics brass was under extra pressure because of their recent string of bad luck with injuries to upgrade their big man choices
Although Griffin, 33, just finished the worst season of his career in Brooklyn,
he still has a much higher offensive upside than the majority of Boston's backup alternatives for Al Horford.
