Teams make several moves this time of year to round out their rosters For example, the Mavericks waive JaVale McGee and the Kings take him – and most of these moves fly under the radar now and won’t have much of an impact over the course of the season.
The Celtics’ one-year minimum deal with Svi Mykhailiuk could be an exception. Boston confirmed the deal on Friday (HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto broke the news the other day).
Mykhailiuk, a native of Ukraine, has been bouncing around the NBA for five years (Lakers, PistonsThunder, Raptors, Knicks) but when given a chance last season with the struggling Hornets, he showed he could help. In Charlotte, Mykhailiuk averaged 10.6 points per game and shot 40.4 percent from 3-point range.
