The Celtics wanted to address the point guard position in the offseason and have done so with this trade. Brogdon provides a play-maker at the point guard spot, which is something the Celtics have been lacking.
Brogdon, 29, is a six-year NBA veteran who has spent time in Milwaukee and Indiana. For his career, he has averaged 15.5 points and 4.8 assists per game. His game has improved ever since he was named Rookie of the Year in 2016-2017. Last season, he averaged 19.1 points and 5.9 assists per game.
In return, the Pacers get a first-round pick to re-tool their roster with. Nesmith is a young prospect to try and develop, while Theis can provide some depth in the short term.
Theis, 30, has averaged 7.6 points and 4.9 rebounds per game in his five-year NBA career. Nesmith, 22, has played two seasons in the NBA, averaging 4.2 points on 31.8 percent 3-point shooting in his career.
