The Boston Celtics were able to win the NBA Finals because of the power of their deep and talented roster.

It wasn’t just one or two stars who got them across the finish line and the team’s front office is adamant about keeping the squad together.

Therefore, they will have to work hard to retain Derrick White this summer.

According to John Hollinger, via NBACentral, the Celtics will have to pay quite a bit to keep him.

Hollinger reports:

“White will be eligible for an extension for up to four years and $127 million this summer, including incentives; league sources say the Celtics are strongly interested in a deal with him and would likely need to offer every cent of that to get it done.”

The Celtics would reportedly have to offer Derrick White an average of $31.75M annually to keep him, per @johnhollinger

According to Hollinger’s math, the Celtics will need to pay $31.75 million annually to keep him in Boston.

That is an amount they are willing to pay.

No one can blame the Celtics for wanting to hold on to White because he just had the best season of his career.

He averaged 15.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game in 2023–24 and was a massive part of the team’s postseason success.

In the playoffs, White produced 16.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 4.1 assists and was a crucial part of the Celtics’ plans on both ends of the court.

White is one of the most talented two-way players in the league and is a true threat offensively and defensively.

Someone like him doesn’t come around often and the Celtics are eager to hold onto him.

With this sort of deal, they will give up a lot of money but they will also keep one of their most valuable core players.

It’s a lot of money, but it is definitely money well spent.
