Report Card Grades for Each Offseason Move for Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics came up short in the Kevin Durant sweepstakes but landed a terrific consolation prize: Al Horford.

President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge has operated with cautious efficiency so far, but he's likely not done yet.

According to Bleacher Report's Howard Beck, the Celtics will be first in line if the Oklahoma City Thunder throw in the towel and shop Russell Westbrook. Boston still has plenty of player and draft assets to sprinkle into a potential deal, and landing a superstar would undoubtedly bring title-contending status.

Even if Boston doesn't land Westbrook, it still has almost $14 million of vacant cap room, according to Spotrac. And despite all the crazy contracts being handed out this summer, that's enough wiggle room to bring in a serviceable player or two.

However, Ainge has already made plenty of personnel decisions that can be evaluated. A top-tier free agent has been brought in, an intriguing draft night is in the books and some of last year's contributors have been set free.
