The Boston Celtics have 10 traded player exceptions to use this offseason

The Boston Celtics still have work to do on the fringes of their roster for the upcoming 2022-23 season if they are to maximize their chances of a return to next spring’s NBA Finals. And while they might not need to be exceptionally aggressive, if they want to do more than make it onto the league’s biggest stage, they probably need some notable moves to pull it off.

Luckily for them, their past moves have provided them with a number of tools that could prove very helpful in onboarding the kind of talent they need to compete for Banner 18 in 2023.

Chief among these tools are the team’s Traded Player Exceptions (TPEs), which for the unanointed represent the first half of a non-concurrent trade that can be used to absorb the salary of a player (or multiple) that fits the bill in question within $100,000.

The Celtics are among the most active teams in the NBA to take advantage of this feature of the league’s Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), and as such have quite a few of them.

The catch is that they have an expiration date to use or lose them, usually around a calendar year from the date of the transaction in which they were created.

With that in mind, let’s look at the ten TPEs Boston could use, from smallest to largest.
