Trade deadline Anthony Davis stays in New Orleans Celtics finally jettison Jabari Bird

The Celtics cleared a roster spot at Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline by sending guard Jabari Bird, sidelined all season after a domestic violence arrest in September, to the Atlanta Hawks, who plan to waive him, per multiple reports. Bird was a second-round draft pick (56th overall) by the C's in 2017.

The Boston Globe reported Wednesday the Celtics were trying to move Bird along with cash to another team to open up a roster spot.

Unfortunately, the former Cal-Berkley guard would find himself in legal trouble in September, after being charged with multiple domestic violence related charges.

We don't have another Edi like we don't have another Neymar'. "Obviously, we are very happy Marco is back with us", Tuchel added. The win over Bordeaux put PSG 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, but comes after the toughest spell of their season.

The Hawks will waive Bird once the trade is finalized, according to The Athletic.

Now, with New Orleans keeping Davis beyond the deadline, Boston can aggressively pursue him this summer.

The Celtics signed Bird to a two-year deal this offseason after playing on a two-way contract last season.
