Celtics two way big man Neemias Queta on making history for Portugal, playing with Danny Ainge’s son

Fans of the Boston Celtics know the team got lucky landing two way big man Neemias Queta after the Sacramento Kings oddly cut the Utah State big man. Savvier fans know he hails from Portugal, and is the first-ever player in the league from that country.

The savviest Celtics fans also know that not only did Queta elect to pursue a sport few in his home country play, but he chose to do it for a team in the US that also had former Celtics president Danny Ainge’s son Crew on it with the Utah State Aggies. What else does this mysterious man in Boston’s frontcourt have to reveal?

Queta was the subject of the most recent episode of the team-produced “View From the Rafters” podcast, an honor not usually afforded to two way players.

But then Queta is far from your usual two way prospect, having already shown he is worthy of a full deal and then some. Check it out above!
