The Celtics continued to bolster their benching prowess and shooting talent on Thursday night when the team announced they had signed veteran swingman Svi Mykhailiuk on a one-year deal.
The Mykhailiuk, 26, is reportedly considering contracts abroad before finally penning a deal with Boston.
Ukrainian-born Mykhailiuk has played for six different teams in the NBA since being picked by the Lakers in the second round of the 2018 draft.
Mykhailiuk, a 1.80m winger, is considered an effective shooter beyond the arc further down the depth chart. So far in the NBA, Mykhailiuk has averaged 6.6 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game while shooting 40.3 percent from the field, including 36.0 percent from beyond the 3-point line.
Mykhailiuk made the most of his time with the Charlotte Hornets in the second half of the 2022-23 season after being traded from the Knicks. During his 19 games in Charlotte, Mykhailiuk averaged 10.6 points per fight while hitting 40.4 percent of his shots from 3-point range.
Following the signing of Mykhailiuk, the Celtics still have one vacancy left in their roster, along with a contract opening in both directions.
Former Celtic player Blake Griffin has still not signed with a team this season break, while Boston has reportedly already done so held workouts with fellow free agents such as TJ Warren and Lamar StevensLouis King and Glenn Robinson III earlier this month.
