Celtics Reportedly Waiving Guerschon Yabusele

The Celtics are reportedly waiving forward Guerschon Yabusele.

The move, which opened a roster spot, offered a disappointing end to Yabusele's Celtics tenure, which began when he was drafted 16th overall in 2016.

This is not a surprise.

The 23-year-old has struggled in his two National Basketball Association seasons, averaging just 2.3 points off 44 percent shooting from the floor and 32 percent from three-point range in his 74 National Basketball Association games. He has only made one field goal in two games and looks lost in a setting where two years of National Basketball Association experience should be a tremendous advantage.

While general manager Danny Ainge certainly plans to use every roster spot afforded to him under National Basketball Association rules, he won't necessarily rush to fill the open one between now and training camp, according to Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe.

In two games, Fall has played a total of just 21 minutes, but in that time he's posted a plus/minus of +27, with 18 points, six rebounds and two blocks.

Yabusele spent the 2016-17 season in China, and while the Celtics would have preferred he spend at least one more season overseas, he made a decision to come to Boston.

He was seen as a raw talent but failed to develop in his time with the team.

The Dancing Bear is no more in Boston.

The Celtics will look much different next season than they have in the past after the departures of Al Horford and Kyrie Irving. While the former plan had merit, the Celtics will be out of roster spots after rookie Carsen Edwards' deal is finalized.
