Shavlik Randolph Decision Day


So dapper, so savvy. #SavvyShavy

On an overcrowded roster, chalk-full of power forward, another decision will need to be made to the roster at some point today. Today is  decision day for Shavlik Randolph for Danny Ainge and company as the Celtics power forward is due to have his entire 1.1 million dollar salary guaranteed for next year if he is not waived today.

At this point, the expectation is that the C’s will keep Shav, who far and away was the best contributor out of all the in-season free agents the Celtics brought aboard last year. He did strong work on the glass on a team that desperately needed it, and held his own on the defensive end of the floor (outside of the times he was plagued by foul trouble). He did his job and probably a little more. In all honesty, he probably deserved to see the floor a bit more in the postseason, to combat the likes of Kenyon Martin in the trenches.

Doc Rivers is gone now though, so Randolph will have a clean slate now with Brad Stevens. The advanced metrics, especially on the glass, were very kind to Shav last year, so the smart money here is on the Celtics keeping him around. The question becomes: in what role do they keep him? With Brandon Bass, Jared Sullinger, Kris Humphries, Kelly Olynyk, Gerald Wallace (amongst others) hanging around at the 4, Shav’s best (only chance) for minutes may come as an undersized 5 next year.

There’s also the luxury tax worry as well, but 1 million dollars should not break the bank in this department. The team has until the end of the regular season to try to drop under the tax line, so there is ample time to wheel and deal to avoid it, without having to dump Shav.

So, no news is good news for Mr. Randolph today. If there is no announcement, it means he’s good to go and I hope we can count on it being a quiet day in the Celtics offices. Shav’s earned it.

    It is a nice post about Shavlik Randolph and a good way to present the whole topic I really like the way he plan for all these and I really like his game to that time was tough for him for the decision and a good decision was taken.
