Guerschon Yabusele got his work visa and has officially joined the Red Claws. Expected to play Friday at Greensboro.— Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) March 29, 2017
Yabusele, affectionately known as "the Dancing Bear" for his unusually mobile frame given his size (six feet, eight inches and 260 pounds), spent much of this NBA season overseas, playing for the Shanghai Sharks along with Jimmer Fredette and putting up significant numbers (he averaged nearly 21 points, 10 rebounds and a block per game) before coming over to the US early this month in anticipation of joining the Red Claws. Yabusele was nursing a minor ankle sprain, but it seems like he may be close to full health if he's being discussed as potentially available Friday. He will not, however, be playing with the Celtics this season, as it would start his rookie-scale deal this season, which may be an important tool in meeting salary cap and free agency goals this season onward.
