Shavlik Randolph probably couldn’t have done much more to earn a roster spot for next season last year. Unfortunately, the looming luxury tax territory the Celtics wanted to stay out of next year, combined with an excess of power forwards under contract proved to be too much for him to overcome.
With a deadline looming which would have fully guaranteed his 1.1 million dollar salary for the season, if kept on the roster after today, the Celtics have decided to waive the journeyman power forward.
The Boston Celtics announced today that they have waived forward Shavlik Randolph.
Randolph, a 6’10” forward, played in 16 games for the Celtics during the 2012-13 season averaging 4.2 points and 4.4 rebounds in 12.4 minutes per game. He also appeared in one game for the Celtics during the playoffs recording three rebounds in three minutes of action. Randolph recorded a career-high of 16 points against Cleveland on April 5 and tied a career-high with 13 rebounds against Atlanta on March 29.
