Report: Celtics sign Javonte Green, Tacko Fall deal still in works

The Celtics have agreed to terms on a contract with Las Vegas Summer League standout Javonte Green.

According to Tim Bontemps of ESPN, Green's deal is only partially guaranteed with a chance to earn a Celtics roster spot come training camp.

Green averaged 10.8 points and 1.8 steals per game as a solid contributor along with Carsen Edwards, Grant Williams and Tacko Fall, that led the Celtics to a 4-1 record during Summer League.
"I don't know what is ahead in his future, but he played really well for us this summer, too," Danny Ainge said Thursday on Boston's 98.5 The Sports Hub. "And he's proven he can find a good role in the NBA, too, if that's what he wants."
The Celtics will give an opportunity to a few of it's Summer League players, as they currently have an one open roster spot (14 players signed to guaranteed contracts), after Guerschon Yabusele was officially waived on July 10.

During the Celtics' introductory press conference of Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter, Ainge spoke about Tacko Fall being in the team's plans and calling the 7'6" big man "a high priority for us to really develop into a player."

It should be interesting to see what the Celtics officially decide to do with their final roster spot going forward.
