NBA Rumors: Celtics Waive Amile Jefferson Ahead Of Season Opener

Boston had to make a roster cut


December 19, 2020

Amile Jefferson apparently is no longer with the Celtics.

Boston has waived the 27-year-old forward, according to The Athletic’s Jared Weiss. Jefferson signed an Exhibit-10 contract, a league-minimum non-guaranteed deal, at the beginning of the month.

However, this does not open up another roster spot for the Celtics, which needed to release a player to get its roster down.

Boston’s G League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, expecting to forego the season only makes things more difficult.
