Boston agrees to two-way contract with center released from Sacramento

Boston Celtics (hereinafter referred to as Boston) will be accompanied by Nimias Queta (24, Portugal).

According to Shams Canary, who is well versed in the NBA, Boston agreed to a two-way contract with Quetta on the 17th (Korean time).

Quetta, a 7-foot (213 cm) center, likes to finish above the rim with great athleticism and is a defensive presence as well. Queta, the first NBA leaguer from Portugal, joined the Sacramento Kings with the 39th overall pick in the 2021 draft. He has played 20 career NBA regular season games as a two-way contractee over the last two seasons.

Quetta, who started as a starter for the Stockton Kings in the G League last season, played in 29 G League regular season games and recorded 16.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks in 27.6 minutes per game. Accordingly, Quetta placed second in the G League MVP voting and was honored with being selected to the All-G League team and the defensive team.

However, Sacramento had plenty of resources to look after centers, including Domantas Sabonis, Alex Len, and Gervail McGee. Therefore, Sacramento recently decided to release Quetta.

Meanwhile, Boston urgently needed a 7-foot center by recruiting Quetta.

However, it may be difficult for Queta to be given much playing time even in Boston. Boston gave last year’s two-way signee, Mfiondu Kabenkele, only 36 minutes of playing time in four NBA regular season games. Last season, Boston used a big man lineup of Robert Williams III, Luke Coenen, Noah Vonleh, and Blake Griffin instead of Kabenkele.바카라

Nevertheless, Boston also has elements of anxiety. Robert Williams and the newly acquired Kristaps Porzingis have an impressive injury history, and starting center Al Horford is at an age where aging is a concern. Therefore, if Quetta leaves an impressive appearance in the training camp, he will be able to serve as a player to assist them.

Queta, who was loved by Sacramento fans, now wants to show Boston fans how he can block opposing shots and finish by hitting the basket with both hands.
