The Boston Celtics are dominating the NBA’s Summer League schedule in Las Vegas and will be playing in tonight’s Summer League championship for their dominant efforts.
With Dennis Schroder, Enes Kanter, and Sam Hauser (two-way) signed to contracts, and Al Horford, Kris Dunn, and Josh Richardson all acquired via trade, the dust has settled a bit in NBA free agency.
But make no mistake about it, free agency has not yet concluded this summer.
This is an atypical summer in the NBA’s offseason cycle, one that takes place after an even more atypical offseason cycle last year that took place in November before games quickly resumed at the end of December to fit in a slate of Christmas day games.
That said, the conclusion of Summer League always coincides with late-game roster tweaks. We’re soon going to see the efforts of hard work and preparation that led to a successful summer pay off for a handful of guys.
Even guys not taking playing in Las Vegas are still going to land with a team before the start of the 2021-22 season.
These 3 Cs are among those and the 3 best landing spots for them:
Yam Madar signs his Boston Celtics deal in time for the 2021-22 season
Yam Madar could be the next domino to fall for the Cs at the conclusion of the Summer League championship.
With rumors of President of Basketball Operations Brad Stevens aiming to move Kris Dunn, Madar could be the guy he has in mind to carve out cap space for. It would make a ton of sense for the Cs to bring in a guy who is meshing so well with their second unit studs in SL play.
Madar is a free agent in technicality only, as Boston owns his rights. Still, it’s no guarantee he is signed this offseason.
