NBA rumors: Celtics to sign Javonte Green to partially guaranteed contract

NBA rumors: Celtics to sign Javonte Green to partially guaranteed contract

The Boston Celtics are not yet finished filling out their roster.

ESPN's Tim Bontemps reported Thursday that the Celtics are going to sign Javonte Green to a partially guaranteed contract.

Green is listed at 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds. The 26-year-old forward played four seasons for Big South conference team Radford from 2011-12 through 2014-15 and averaged 14.4 points over his career. He has spent time playing professionally in Europe after college, and as noted in the tweet above, he impressed during Boston's NBA Summer League tournament run in Las Vegas earlier this month.

One thing we learned about Green in Las Vegas is that he has some serious athleticism.

Celtics fans are hoping 7-foot-6 center Tacko Fall is the next Summer League standout to sign a contract with the team. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge told 98.5 The Sports Hub's "Toucher and Rich" show Thursday morning that the team is "trying to still get a contract done" with Fall.

Celtics' Danny Ainge's shows off his handles in awesome new Twitter video

Danny Ainge retired from the NBA 24 years ago, but he's still got pretty good handles.

The Boston Celtics president of basketball operations tweeted a video Thursday of him dribbling around his dog in the driveway, and it's clear that Ainge's ballhandling skills haven't faded much.

Not bad, right?

The star of the video might be Ainge's dog, who gave a heck of an effort trying to play defense. Nick Wright of FOX Sports 1 couldn't resist using the dog to take a shot at Enes Kanter's defense, thus continuing the Twitter feud between the "First Things First" host and new Celtics center.

Ainge was more known for his outside shooting than his handles as an NBA player, so we're hoping his next video shows how well his shot has held up in retirement.
