The Celtics will reportedly be parting ways with big man Guerschon Yabusele.
According to Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes, Boston will be waiving Yabusele in the midst of Summer League.

With frontcourt prospects like Grant Williams and Robert Williams vying for playing time next season and Tacko Fall eyeing a roster spot, Yabusele is already the odd man out by the Celtics' estimation. Making matters worse, the third-year forward hasn't played well throughout Summer League's first three games.
For a player entering his third NBA season, Yabusele should be one of the better players for the Celtics in Las Vegas, instead he's been the opposite. He went scoreless in the first Summer League game and finished with four points and then finished with four points and a pair of rebounds in 16 minutes in the second game Monday night before leaving the game with an ankle injury.
Yabusele struggled to keep up with his teammates, it appeared, as he failed to carve out a role offensively in the post and was a step behind defensively -- which came as a surprise for someone with two years of experience under his belt. He was drafted by the Celtics in 2016 with the No. 16 pick.
Yabusele averaged 2.3 points, 1.4 rebounds in 74 regular season games throughout the past two seasons.
