Breaking: Celtics to sign Max Strus to 2-year deal - opening up a 2-way slot

The Athletic's Shams Charania is reporting that the Celtics are about to sign Max Strus to a two-year contract. Strus is currently on a 2-way contract, so this signing would open up one of the two 2-way slots.


Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is that Danny Ainge may be preparing to sign Green Giant, Tacko Fall, to that 2-way contract, formerly occupied by Max. With this season being only partially guaranteed, there is no assurance that Strus will stick on the Celtics full-time roster.


One of my readers made this call more than a week ago in the comment section of one of my articles (per David Anthopoulos):

"...Strus is a useful spot-up shooter who can sit on the bench and then be inserted into a situation where Brad needs need 3 points, I expect Tacko to get Strus's two-way when Strus is added. I believe Tacko's PR value and his attitude have already earned him a spot."

We will await further moves in the next week or so. Danny seems to be covering all the bases - which is only fitting since he once played for the Toronto Blue Jays. Stay with us for breaking updates.
