2016-17

With the Celtics holding an abundance of draft picks and not enough roster spots to accommodate all their selections, they picked up French-born big man Yabusele with the 16th overall pick in June with the intention of stashing him overseas. At 6-foot-8 and 270 pounds, Yabusele doesn't fit the conventional measurements NBA teams typically look for in frontcourt players. However, despite what his dimensions suggest, Yabusele takes good care of his body, packing a lot of muscle into that listed weight. He also has lengthy arms, which help offset some his height deficiencies to some degree. From a skills standpoint, Yabusele is a surprisingly adept shooter. He already grades out as an above-average marksman from the outside, as he hit 43 percent of his three-point attempts while playing with French second division club Rouen last season. Celtics coach Brad Stevens has shown an affinity in the past for big men like Jared Sullinger, Kelly Olynyk and Jonas Jerebko who can stretch the floor, and Yabusele seems like another player who might fit that mold. Before seriously considering bringing him to the NBA, the Celtics will need Yabusele to make significant strides on the defensive end, where the power forward's lack of lateral mobility can often inhibit him. He'll attempt to hone his craft in the Chinese Basketball Association this season after signing a one-year deal with the Shanghai Sharks following a promising run with the Celtics during summer league.
