This season did not begin the way the Boston Celtics thought it would, but here we are, and they are amidst a 7-game winning streak sitting at 17-10 and holding fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
The Celtics have a few guys who are great at being versatile. This is what makes them such an intriguing team to watch, and also what makes them dangerous. They could view Parker as one more piece to the puzzle, and a versatile one at that. With Parker having played both the three and four spots this season, he’s one who could fit in well.
The Celtics currently have Marcus Morris, Daniel Theis and Semi Ojeleye as their primary power forwards. I would say it would be well-worth adding Parker to that mix, as a guy who could be some offensive firepower off the bench.
Adding Parker to this young and versatile core would give them a guy who, in the past, was looked at as someone that would eventually be “the man.” But, the way his career has turned out, Parker is looking more like a sixth man. If he embraced that role with this Celtics team, he’d make them a lot more dangerous.
