  • Celtics' Tacko Fall is quickly becoming a Summer League sensation

The Celtics are moving on from a former first-round pick.

The Celtics on Wednesday waived big man Guerschon Yabusele, according to an ESPN.com report. The 7-foot-6 center became a national phenomenon during the 2019 NCAA tournament, and he might just be the most popular player at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

On Wednesday, the Boston Celtics made a move that was unfortunately a long time coming when they cut the #16 pick in the 2016 National Basketball Association draft. Unlike his draft class-mate Jaylen Brown, Yabusele doesn't have a future with the Boston Celtics.

Because the team initially picked up his option for the coming season, Yabusele's $3.1 million contract will still count toward the salary cap.

Ultimately, the Celtics' open roster spot could go to veteran help for the frontcourt on a minimum deal.

- The Celtics may still be in the market for a starting big man, but acquiring one would likely mean a trade.

The Celtics might be content to patiently examine potential trade possibilities with a goal of adding more proven talent, the open roster spot allowing the acquisition of an additional player should the team need that spot in an uneven swap.

Would Timofey Mozgov, Kosta Koufos, or Tyson Chandler get you pumped for the season almost as much as Fall would?
