Tim Bontemps of ESPN reported that the Boston Celtics and Las Vegas Summer League standout Javonte Green have agreed to terms on a partially guaranteed contract.

In addition to the elevated play of Carsen Edwards and Grant Williams as well as the spectacle of Tacko Fall, Javonte Green was a solid contributor over the two weeks that the Celtics played in Vegas as they went 4-1. Green’s partial guarantee allows him to compete for the team’s last roster spot as they currently have 14 players who will most certainly make the team.

The Celtics have several options with this spot, but they’ll give Summer League players a shot to earn it. This morning, Danny Ainge mentioned how Tacko Fall, the 7-foot-7-inch center, fits into plans for next season:

Yesterday during the introductory press conference for Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter, Ainge said that Fall “is a high priority for us to really develop into a player.”

It appears that the Celtics are mostly done for this summer, barring any huge moves coming out of left field.

Their focus will turn to what to do with the final roster spot, and this is one of the steps toward figuring it out.
