Knicks also got a $1.5M trade exception in the Hernangomez deal which they can use for a player today. Sources indicate they inquired about Celtics young French power forward Guerschon Yabusele, 22.— Marc Berman (@NYPost_Berman) February 8, 2018
Yabusele joined the Celtics after the team made him their 16th overall selection in the 2016 NBA Draft and spending last season in China with the Shanghai Sharks.
In 22 games with the Celtics this season, Yabusele is averaging 1.8 points 1.4 rebounds while shooting 36% from three on limited attempts. He has bounced back and forth from the Maine Red Claws to get playing time, averaging over 20 points in seven games of G-League action.
There haven’t been any reports suggesting that the Celtics have reciprocated interest in moving Yabusele to New York. Boston has Yabusele under contract until the 2021-22 season after signing this summer.
