The Boston Celtics have added guard Malcolm Brogdon and forward Danilo Gallinari to their championship contending core without having to give up any of their top-level rotation players.
Brogdon has reportedly been traded to the Celtics in exchange for Aaron Nesmith, Daniel Theis, and a 2023 first-round pick.

Galinari has reportedly informed teams that he intends to sign with the Celtics after clearing waivers.
Brogdon, 29, averaged 19.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 5.9 assists on 45%/31%/86% shooting splits for the Indiana Pacers last season.
Gallinari, 33, averaged 11.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.5 assists on 43%/38%/90% shooting splits for the Atlanta Hawks last season.
Both Brogdon and Gallinari are expected to be major rotation players for the Celtics.
The Celtics now have a projected rotation that includes Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, Al Horford, Robert Williams III, Derrick White, Grant Williams, Payton Pritchard, Brogdon, and Gallinari.
