If you ask Danny, I suspect he'd say that Strus has a shot to be a NBA shooter with above-average athleticism.What is Max Strus’ NBA skill?
I believe you're getting two-ways and the 15th roster spot mixed up. Right now the Cs have 14 roster spots and they have signed Strus and Waters on 2-ways. Tacko is on an "Exhibit 10" contract (I think he got a bonus for that).Exactly.
Putting Tacko on a 2-way contract seems like a no-brainer. Typically, the 15th roster spot goes to a marginal NBA player anyway, so why not use it on a guy with an uncoachable skill and potential upside. Yes, chances are likely that Fall is at best a 10mpg role player. Or maybe not even that.
But I honestly don't get the reservations some folks have about using one of their 2-way spots on him. They can always find another Strus for next season if Fall doesn't work out.
Note that Javonte Green is on a partially guaranteed 2-year deal that apparently has a signing bonus of $150,000. CelticsBlog wrote that because of this guarantee, Green is ineligible to play in the G-League (maximum bonus is $50,000: see here for confirmation).
So as of this very moment, I'd say that Green has the inside track to the 15th roster spot and Fall, Waters, and Strus are battling for the 2 two-way spots.
Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
