"I think they need athletes in the front court." - A. Sherrod Blakely

NBA free agency is now in full swing.

Celtics Insider A. Sherrod Blakely joined Arbella Early Edition to give his take on which free agents the Celtics have a chance to acquire.

On Tuesday Morning, the C's were reportedly one of the first teams to contact Kings point guard Isaiah Thomas. 

"This is the best Mr. Irrelevant to ever be drafted in the NBA," said Blakely. "Averaged 20 points last year. Some guys don't score 20 points in their entire NBA career where he was drafted. Very good player, young, has a lot of potential to be a really solid pro."

Former Lakers center Jordan Hill is another potential target. 

"I think he's a guy that they can get," said Blakely. "I think they need athletes in the front court. If you're giving up size, they can actually make up for that by altering shots." 

Although he isn't a big name player, Kent Bazemore could be a potential fit for the Celtics.  

"This is the kind of guy that Brad Stevens loves," explained Blakely. "This is a guy that can fit into his system and be an impact player and not necessarily have his number called."
