The Celtics made roster announcements prior to their preseason tilt against the Cavaliers on Sunday at TD Garden.
Celtics are converting 7-foot-6 rookie Tacko Fall to a two-way contract, league sources tell ESPN. He will spend most of his season developing with G-League affiliate Maine, but can spend up to 45 days with Celtics in NBA.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) October 13, 2019
Max Strus, who initially signed a two-way contract back in July, has agreed to a standard, partially guaranteed NBA deal, while Tacko Fall will be taking Strus' spot as Boston's new two-way player. Fall's new deal means the 7-foot-5 center will spend the majority of the upcoming season in Maine with the Celtics' G-League team the Red Claws, and is allowed to spend up to 45 days with the Celtics main roster.
The Boston Celtics are signing two-way guard Max Strus to a two-year NBA deal, with a partial guarantee this season of nearly half of rookie minimum, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) October 13, 2019
Strus, who hasn't received a whole lot of playing time from Brad Stevens throughout his first two preseason games, has logged in two rebounds and three assists in seven minutes. Fall impressed the Celtics so much throughout Summer League that the undrafted rookie earned himself a shot at making the team and his untapped potential hasn't wavered since.
So far, he's averaged 2.5 points, 4 rebounds, and 1 block in 7 minutes throughout his first two preseason games.
