The Boston Celtics are a good but not great team with talent across the board, but they still need a star. Here are five roster moves they need to make.

Last season the Boston Celtics developed their own star in Isaiah Thomas but for them to succeed in the wider NBA landscape, they need need someone with star power already, someone who can take the game by the scruff of the neck and yank it from the opposition.

I think that we saw a star do that in June for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Yeah, that sort of star. One that will give you a triple-double at the right time or 30 points and 10 rebounds. You could even be looking for one to give you a 50-point night.

This year, Boston have been able to secure a couple of meetings with big name free agents, which is a step up from last year when they were only able to secure meeting with players like Jae Crowder, who already played for them.

Kevin Durant is the headline meeting that they have got and a player like that could elevate this good team into a truly great team.

Unfortunately during the draft where Boston had eight picks including three first round selections, the best they able to get was Jaylen Brown, despite the various offers Danny Ainge had out there.

Brown is a 6-foot-7 shooting guard out of California who is another good perimeter defender that has issues with his shot (Marcus Smart anyone?) and his ball handling.
