‘This is a great opportunity,’ says Celtics’ Noah Vonleh of his shot at making Boston’s roster
Haverill’s own Noah Vonleh is determined to make the most of the chance the Boston Celtics have extended him with a camp invite and the possibility of making the team’s 2022-23 roster. “This is a great opportunity,” said the Indiana product after practice on Sunday (via CLNS). I got the call in early August from the front office, and they talked about a potential chance to make the roster.”
“I was very excited,” he said, “especially as a hometown kid from the area.” A former five-star recruit coming out of high school who struggled to find a role at the NBA level, playing for seven NBA teams before falling out of the league and playing a stint with the CBA’s Shanghai Sharks last season.
“The journey continues,” shared Vonleh of his potential path back to the NBA with the Celtics.
