  • Javonte Green
    F, Boston Celtics

    Javonte Green will join the Celtics on a partially guaranteed contract.

    After a strong Summer League performance where he averaged 10.8 ppg on 50% shooting, Green will get an opportunity to fight for a roster spot for the Celtics. He most recently played overseas in Germany.

  • Daniel Theis

    The Celtics have officially re-signed Daniel Theis and Brad Wanamaker.

    The team rescinded their qualifying offer to Theis in a procedural move to maximize cap space, but he's back in Boston on a two-year, $10 million deal. He'll be battling for backup center minutes and his shooting ability (38.8 percent from deep last season on low volume) could set him apart from the rest of Boston's frontcourt options. As a player who can knock down threes and pick up some steals and blocks, there's deep-league potential for Theis should he end up pushing for something like 20 mpg. Wanamaker decided to pass on larger offers from European teams to return to the Celtics, where he may have a better shot at minutes with Terry Rozier out of the picture. Even so, he's not a fantasy target.

    Danny Ainge said that Tacko Fall's development is a "high priority" for the Celtics.

    Fall is on an Exhibit 10 contract and figures to spend his time in the G-League this season. With an 8'2" wingspan and 10'3" standing reach, it's not hard to see why Boston is going to try and coax everything they can out of Fall's game. There's definitely some serious upside as a shot-blocker if he ever cracks the NBA, but until that happens he's not on the fantasy radar.

  • Enes Kanter
    C, Boston Celtics

    The Celtics have officially inked Enes Kanter to a contract.

    Danny Ainge referred to Kanter as part of the team's Plan A this summer, and the Celtics picked him up on an affordable two-year deal worth $10 million. The second year is a player option so we should see a very motivated Kanter this season. He's going to start at center for the Celtics, and while his defensive deficiencies may limit his minutes, we're expecting 25 mpg or more. That's more than enough for the big man to deliver middle-round value.

  • Daniel Theis

    The Celtics have rescinded their qualifying offer to big man Daniel Theis, making him an unrestricted free agent.

    This is move is to maximize the team's remaining cap space. Theis will eventually be signed to a deal using his Early Bird Rights. Theis will have value as a deep-league source of blocks. He will be competing with Robert Williams to back up starting center, Enes Kanter.

  • Vincent Poirier

    The Celtics have announced the signing of Vincent Poirier.

    Poirier joins the Celtics after six professional seasons in Europe and is believed to be on a two-year deal. Last season he averaged 10.5 points (61.6 percent shooting), 7.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists, and 1.0 blocked shots in 73 games between EuroLeague and Liga ACB competition. Poirier figures to be battling Daniel Theis and Robert Williams for playing time behind Enes Kanter and doesn't have much fantasy appeal.

  • Carsen Edwards
    PG, Boston Celtics

    The Boston Celtics have made the signing of rookie Carsen Edwards official.

    Edwards has been spectacular all summer long and looks like he could be a scorer in this league for years to come. There is a chance he can crack low-end rotation minutes in his first season as a ball handler behind Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart, making him a guy worth monitoring in very deep leagues.

  • Carsen Edwards
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Carsen Edwards led the team scoring 25 points on 9-of-23 shooting during Saturday's 94-88 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Edwards continues to display his scoring ability in what was the Celtics' first loss during Summer League. The Celtics and Edwards have already agreed on a four-year deal and he figures to be a part of the team early on.

  • Tremont Waters
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Tremont Waters scored 16 points on 6-of-17 shooting in Saturday's 94-88 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Waters led the team in minutes despite playing through a tremendous tragedy with the recent passing of his father.

  • Carsen Edwards
    PG, Boston Celtics

    According to Celtics beat writer Adam Himmelsbach, the Celtics reached an agreement on a four-year guaranteed contract on Friday night.

    The particulars of the agreement are four years and $4.5 million. Edwards has looked very strong this Summer League averaging 18 ppg on 52% shooting so it's no surprise the Celtics gave him a contract.

  • Robert Williams III
    C-F, Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams scored 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting while adding a game-high 16 rebounds to go with four assists and a block in Thursday's 113-87 clobbering of the Grizzlies.

    The Time Lord has arrived. He's always been a per-minute monster similar to Mitchell Robinson on the Knicks and there's honestly not much reason for him to be playing in the Summer League. He's got loads of talent and all he has to do is put together the pieces off the court to do some damage in the big leagues.

  • Tacko Fall
    C, Boston Celtics

    Tacko Fall scored 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting while adding eight rebounds, and four blocks in Thursday's Summer League game vs. the Grizzlies.

    Fall has already breached meme territory due to his massive size and name. It'll be extremely difficult for him to be a rotational player and he'll be a situational level player like Boban Marjanovic at best.

  • Grant Williams
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Grant Williams scored 21 points on 6-of-10 shooting with four 3-pointers, an assist and seven rebounds against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

    Williams dominated this game on the offensive end of the floor and the amount of triples he was knocking down was a bit of a surprise. The seven fouls were a bit of a problem, but a lot of players just hack away in Summer League. He was always a solid scorer in college, but over his three year career he averaged 0.3 3PTM on .291 shooting. If the 3-point shooting is real, he'll stick around.

  • Max Strus
    G, Boston Celtics

    Max Strus scored 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting while adding three triples, two assists and three rebounds on Thursday.

    Strus has been a big time scorer in his two years in college and that hasn't changed in the Summer League. He's still gunning and the ball is going in, but there's still a lot of work for him to do before he becomes fantasy relevant.
