The Celtics have decided on Malcolm Brogdon.

Malcolm Brogdon’s fate appears to have been decided by the Boston Celtics.
Does it make sense for the Celtics to start Malcolm Brogdon?

The Celtics are not considering trading Brogdon, at least not any more than they are considering trading any other player on their roster, according to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe this week. However, Himmelsbach did admit that something “just feels slightly off” about the Brogdon-Celtics situation.

This week, there was a rumor that seasoned guard Brogdon was upset with the Celtics. In a three-team deal in June, the franchise had agreed to transfer Brogdon to the Los Angeles Clippers, but the deal ultimately failed due to serious health concerns with Brogdon. That is probably what has the guard so angry at Boston.

However, there is currently a compelling case for the Celtics to keep Brogdon on the team and merely attempt to mend their relationship with him. The Celtics ultimately sent Marcus Smart to the Memphis Grizzlies in a different trade after the Brogdon to the Clippers deal fell through (creating more playing time and touches in the backcourt).

A right forearm injury prevented Brogdon from contributing in the playoffs, but he still has two years left on his deal and won the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award last season with a strong 15-4-4 record off the bench.

If the Celtics are unable to make amends with Brogdon, it appears they would have an intriguing Plan B at point guard.
