Since his time with the Celtics ended after the 2016–17 season, he has been traded to four more teams, and each time, the dynamic has shifted considerably. The Celtics squad had young players on the rise, but they weren’t quite on par with the best teams in the league at the time.

With players like Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Jrue Holiday, and Kristaps Porzingis leading the way, the Celtics are now one of the favorites to make it to the NBA Finals. Olynyk may raise the depth’s talent level and provide supporters a recognizable face to root for.

This season, in 21.9 minutes per game, he is averaging 7.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4.5 assists for the Utah Jazz.
