According to HoopsHype.com, the Boston Celtics have officially waived newly acquired forward Donte Greene. About a month ago, the Celtics landed Greene in a trade that sent Fab Melo to the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for the 25-year old journeyman.
The move shouldn’t come as any surprise to Celtics fans, especially when you consider the fact that even Greene knew he wasn’t a part of the organization’s short or long-term plans.
Greene’s agent, Chris Grier-Luchey, informed HoopsHype’s Jorge Sierra of the contract his client would be finalizing with a squad in China in the near future. Of course, Greene won’t officially be able to sign that deal until the Celtics complete the process of releasing him.
With Greene almost out the door the Celtics now have their roster down to 18 players, four of which are on non-guaranteed, camp invite contracts. It’ll be interesting to see if the team decides to add another player to max out their depth chart at 15 players.
