What will the Celtics do with their team option for Guerschon Yabusele?

What will the Celtics do with their team option for Guerschon Yabusele?

Will the bear keep dancing in Boston beyond this season? The Boston Celtics find themselves at a bit of a crossroads with 2016 first round pick Guerschon Yabusele. Yabusele was drafted 16th overall and was immediately labeled one of the steals of that draft. He then spent a year overseas in China, before signing his rookie scale contract with Boston in the summer of 2017. This puts Yabusele on the Celtics books through 2021-22, with the final two seasons (2020-21 and 2021-22) being team options. The Celtics roster has grown quite expensive, largely due to max contracts for Al Horford in...

Celtics’ bench foreshadows strength of depth

The Celtics’ 2nd quarter surge on Sunday night gives a glimpse of the dangers of their second unit After a slow first quarter, the Celtics looked a bit out of sorts with chemistry even harder to come by without their anchor Al Horford who was sitting out with a sore wrist. Heading into the second quarter, the team threw out an interesting lineup of Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris, and Daniel Theis. The result? A dominating 40-25 Celtics quarter which included a 9-0 run, Tatum scoring 13 points in a little over 3 minutes, and 5-position switching that stifled a lot...
