Boston Celtics Add Depth to Their Bench and Sign Forward Jabari Parker


The Boston Celtics have added some depth to their roster and signed free agent Jabari Parker, per Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.  The deal is reportedly for two-years for the former No. 2 overall pick, who was waived by the Kings a few weeks ago.

Parker, 26, was waived in March after only appearing in three games for the Kings.  The former Duke standout has averaged 14.8 points per game and 5.7 rebounds over the course of his career.

The Celtics will waive recently acquired Moe Wagner to create the roster spot for Parker.  The 6-foot-8 forward has had two ACL surgeries on his left knee and has yet to live up to his All-Star potential.  Parker will look to revitalize his career under the guidance of Brad Stevens.

Parker will help provide depth to the Celtics’ frontcourt and depth from their bench.

He has bounced around the league over the last few seasons. Parker has been with the Bulls, Wizards, Hawks and the Kings.

Wagner was acquired at the NBA Trade Deadline when the C’s dealt Daniel Theis and Javonte Green.  In only nine games with Boston, Wagner had 11 points, 19 rebounds, six assists and nine turnovers.

The Celtics are currently fifth in the Eastern Conference with a 30-26 record.
