Boston Celtics, Brad Wanamaker agreed on guaranteed one-year rookie minimum deal for $831,311, sources tell me. Euroleague's all-guard bet on himself, left $3.8M net on the table in Barcelona.

Was hopeful for two years.  Oh well.

Yeah, me too.

Can't we at least resign him via the Arenas Provision because he was undrafted, making him a restricted free agent after that 1-year deal is up?

That is my interpretation based on what I've been able to find online.

Apparently we could only match with exception money, but other teams would be limited to offers no higher than the non-taxpayer MLE... We might go over the tax line, making that problematic.

I doubt anyone would be offering him $9M per season, though, so we should be able to fit him in if we want to.

Just look him up... 29 years old and never played in NBA? NO THANK YOU
Yeah, following so closely after the draft, the impulse is to compare him to a 22 yo rookie, but he's not likely to get any better at this point.

I'll take him as a taller replacement for Larkin and a better defender.

Anyone?  Salt?

And I probably don't need to ask, but I'm assuming there's no possible market regulation (IE making him an RFA) if he does decide to jump back overseas to maximize his earnings?

The Celtics will have the opportunity to extend Wanamaker a QO at around $1.65 million.  If he jumps back to Europe, the Celtics can keep extending him the QO every year, giving them rights of first refusal should he try the NBA again at a later date (I donít think thatís his plan ó i think he wants to stay in the States.)

The Arenas provision will probably not help, because if someone gave him so big an offer it would require the use of the full taxpayer extension, but that subjects us to the hard cap, and resigning Wanamaker at that amount would put us over said cap.  Accepting the QO is a possibility ó itís unlikely the Cís match for much more than it, however.  He still looks to be a third/fourth PG option long-term.

I think the C's are a destination desirable team to go play for now.

IMO this is a better signing than many of the future wannabe ringchasers that we will see in July, August, February.

We have officially signed guard @phillybul_22.

He joins us after seven season playing professionally in Europe, where he was named the 2018 Turkish League Finals MVP. Wanamaker will wear number 9.

Iíve been trying to remember why this dude has seemed familiar to me. It finally hit me: he played for Roman in high school, and was a friend of friends. I met him once, and they talked about his future greatness all the time. Small world.
