Tristan Thompson joined the Celtics over the offseason on a 2 year mid-level deal, leaving Boston with four centers and two sure things at wing with Semi Ojeleye and Javonte Green returning to join Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Thompson is the starter, with Daniel Theis originally playing the four and now on the bench. He’s averaging 7.9 points and 8.8 rebounds per game, but in a loss to the New York Knicks struggled to defend the rim and rebound. Does Boston need more from Thompson?
