Yabusele was drafted with the No. 16 overall pick in 2016, but the French big man never took the next step. He averaged only 6.1 minutes per game in the 2018-19 season.

The 23-year-old's departure could open the door for the 7-foot-7 fan favorite Tacko Fall to earn a two-way contract with the Celtics.
