Sullinger is currently a restricted free agent. He and the Celtics did not negotiate a new contract prior to last year’s deadline, with Sullinger’s agent saying that discussions never even took place. The Celtics — and team president Danny Ainge — have not been shy about the inconsistency they’ve seen from Sullinger in terms of staying in shape. The team ruled him out for the remainder of the 2015 season last February, yet he surprisingly returned before the end of the season, raising many eyebrows about the basis of that injury leave.MORE NEWS: 'A Calamitous State': Boston Think Tank Has Dire Predictions For MBTA's Future
Whatever the history may be, the addition of free agent Al Horford likely makes Sullinger more expendable to Ainge, so now we wait to see what exactly that happy change will be for Sullinger.
