The Celtics are waiving forward Jabari Parker, according to a league source.
I'm a little surprised by this, even though it has been reported as a possibility all summer. For a team whose biggest question is the 4 spot to jettison a guy who seems like instant offense they must have been pretty unimpressed with something about him.
"Who, specifically, the Celtics would add is unclear, but the most logical possibility is Harry Giles, a fourth-year big man who was waived by the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday."
Giles seems like a smart flier. A guy who has talent, highly touted in his high school class, suffered injuries and bad situations. Of course, the question is always "If he's worth it, why did everyone else cut him?" But Tatum and him are buddies and it does feel like there's something there.
I also wouldn't be surprised if the Celtics brought the Green Kornet back full time.
