"Nikola Vucevic is going to potentially be one of the top priorities for the Boston Celtics as a free agent in July," a source told Charania. "For the Celtics, that meant shedding some salary. Now they can prioritize signing a big man to replace Al Horford and also try to prioritize Terry Rozier, who's also a restricted free agent this July."
Horford's future with the Celtics is in doubt, as the Dallas Mavericks have apparently emerged as favorites for the five-time All-Star's signature.
Vucevic averaged career highs in points (20.8), rebounds (12), and assists (3.8) for the Orlando Magic last season en route to his first All-Star nod and second postseason appearance.
