Celtics trade for veteran big man Mike Muscala
The veteran stretch big Mike Muscala will add some depth to the Celtics big man depth chart. The Celtics made an offer for Jacob Poeltl, but were rejected and he was traded to the Raptors. Also the Celtics reached out about the Jazz' Kelly Olynyk, but reportedly the asking price was too high.
