Getting to know new Boston Celtics big man Xavier Tillman, Sr.

Who is new Boston Celtics big man Xavier Tillman, Sr.? The newest addition to the Celtics’ frontcourt for their 2023-24 campaign, Tillman was dealt to Boston from the Memphis Grizzlies ahead of the 2024 NBA trade deadline. But what else do we know about the man, who has not seen the floor much for the Celtics since being dealt to the team?

To learn more about him, NBC Sports Boston reporter Chris Forsberg recently sat down with the former Grizzlies big man to talk about joining the team, and everything we need to know about him from before that moment arrived. Forsberg also gets into the news that Jayson Tatum and Jrue Holiday will likely be on Team USA for the 2024 Paris Olympics, with Abby Chin joining the “Celtics Talk” podcast to interview the latter.

Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear what they had to say.
