Boston is also looking long-term in the role with Sam Hauser.
Second-year forward Sam Hauser has agreed to a three-year contract with the Celtics worth approximately $6 million, a league source told the Globe on Sunday. The first two years of the deal are fully guaranteed, the source said.
Internally, there’s real optimism that Hauser can become a regular rotation player next season.
This was telegraphed when the Celtics declined Hauser’s minimum-salary team option. The only good reason not to keep him cheap next year: To instead sign him to a long-term deal like this one.
Hauser’s minimum salary on a three-year contract: $5,658,206. So, he’s either getting slightly more, or the report is rounding up.
Hauser joined Boston last year as an undrafted free agent from Virginia. At 6-foot-8, he has shown good shooting ability and at least the possibility he can hold up defensively.
