While the Celtics traded both (Jameer) Nelson and (Brandan)Wright less than a month later, the 24-year-old (Jae) Crowder has emerged as maybe Boston’s most consistent and versatile bench presence. He’s averaging 9.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.4 assists over 24.2 minutes per game in 53 appearances with the Celtics.

The Celtics are likely to extend a $1.2 million qualifying offer, but seem likely to explore a contract extension, particularly if other teams make a run at Crowder as a restricted free agent.
