3 sharpshooters the Boston Celtics could acquire to improve their perimeter scoring

Recent NBA history has made one thing very clear to any Boston Celtics fan or general basketball fan that has followed this wonderful sport: you will not win a championship if you cannot shoot the basketball. Dating back to the 2011-12 season (the first true season of small-ball as a result of Erik Spoelstra’s Miami Heat), there has not been an NBA champion that lacked 3-point shooting.

The San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors featured two long-range marksmen in Kawhi Leonard (career 38%) and Danny Green (40%) that always seemed to hit the big-3 at the most opportune times.
