Kelly Olynyk thanks Boston as he leaves for Heat

Kelly Olynyk thanks Boston as he leaves for Heat

Kelly Olynyk is leaving Boston on good terms -- literally in that the terms of his new contract with the Heat are ridiculous, and also in that he's thanking the city on his way out. 

A day after agreeing to a four-year, $50 million contract with Miami, Olynyk posted a tweet thanking the city of Boston and its fans. 

Olynyk was a restricted free agent this offseason, but the Celtics renounced his rights after agreeing to terms with Gordon Hayward on a max contract. The 26-year-old Olynyk had played his entire career in Boston since being drafted 13th overall in 2013.

Raptors' Pascal Siakam hilariously botches dunk vs Celtics

It was an eventful first quarter in Friday night's Celtics-Raptors matchup, but the best moment came from Toronto's Pascal Siakam.

Siakam had an easy path to the rim when suddenly he lost the handle on his dunk attempt, making for a pretty hilarious highlight (or lowlight).

That certainly wasn't one of Siakam's finest moments, but the 24-year-old has been a pleasant surprise for the Raptors so far this season averaging 14.1 points and 6.5 rebounds per game.
