Celtics officially waive Jordan Mickey

Another move directly associated with the pending signing of free agent Gordon Hayward, the Celtics have officially waived third year big man Jordan Mickey, according to multiple sources

The 23-year old played in just 25 games this past season, averaging 1.5 points, 1.4 rebounds in 5 minutes per contest. Overall, Mickey made 41 total appearances for the Celtics over a two season span, never playing more than 19 minutes in any given game during his time in Boston.

The Celtics waived Mickey before the July 15 deadline and save approximately $1.5 million towards the 2017-18 salary cap. Danny Ainge has freed up some more cap space to officially sign Hayward and possibly 2016 first-rounder, draft and stash prospect Guerschon Yabusele to a contract as well.

Now the Celtics will need to make a decision on Demetrius Jacskon before his $1.35 million contract becomes guaranteed on July 15.
