What you see is what you get with this Celtics roster. For now.
Danny Ainge seems to be done trying to acquire more talent to start the season with the Celtics.
Ainge on potential moves before season: "We’ll always try to improve our team but we don’t have anything that we’re looking to do right now"— Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) September 22, 2015
The Celtics were sneaky good this offseason acquiring Amir Johnson, David Lee and Perry Jones. They drafted Terry Rozier, R.J. Hunter, Marcus Thornton and Jordan Mickey. Ainge also retained Jonas Jerebko and Jae Crowder.
Overall, they weren't the type of fireworks that leave you breathless and that thump in your chest, but it's a start. More importantly they didn't swing for fences and bring in the Tobias Harris's or Greg Monroe's of the world. Those are the types of fireworks that will leave your franchise in a worse situation than Jason Pierre-Paul.
Now that he is done wheeling and dealing, Ainge will now, in all likelihood, shift his focus to Tyler Zeller and Jared Sullinger who are both looking for extensions.

I think Zeller will sign before the season starts when it is all said and done. He fits too perfectly with Brad Stevens and he won't cost a fortune. As for Sully, given the season he had last year, I think Danny will make him prove that he is worth being a part of the C's future.
