Boston Celtics Sign Draft Pick Jabari Bird
On Friday, the Boston Celtics agreed to a two-way contract with second round pick Jabari Bird.
Bird was a part of a deal where the Celtic’s could only sign two players. No other roster moves will be made until training camp.
On the other hand, Bird averaged 7 points per game in Summer League play. He seemed good enough to make the preseason roster.
Does this mean his spot remains on the team?
The Celtics will need to evaluate his talent further at the preseason comes up.
Otherwise, he may end up with the Maine Red Claws. It is worth noting however that Bird and budding Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown played together in college and are close friends. This may not seem like much, but in a few years, it could provide some deep chemistry for the Boston Celtics.
