Shams: Boston Celtics to add big men Al-Farouq Aminu and Norvel Pelle to shore up COVID-19-beset frontcourt

USA Today


Article Summary:

The Boston Celtics are reportedly signing a pair of big men to 10-day hardship exemption deals to shore up their frontcourt rotation after Al Horford, Enes Kanter Freedom, Grant Williams and Jabari Parker entered the NBA’s health and safety protocol with positive COVID-19 tests in the last week, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The players in question are 11-season NBA veteran forward Al-Farouq Aminu and center Norvel Pelle. Aminu most recently played for the Chicago Bulls in 2020-21.

Neither is likely to be a game changer for the Celtics at either end of the court, but with eight players in the health and safety protocol, Boston needs size with a pulse at the moment – and a little more veteran leadership certainly can’t hurt the young team either. With eight players in COVID-19 protocols, two big men en route to join the Celtics.
