With the Boston Celtics electing to bring on Indiana Pacers floor general Malcolm Brogdon, the team's rotation will undoubtedly be shaken up a bit in what we hope is a positive manner as fans of the storied franchise.

Check out the clip embedded above to hear their takes on who ought to be manning the point when the ball is tipped off next season.
