This guy aways seemed to have good game against The Celtics in the past.

Yeah, I’d been looking at him when the Knicks were rumored to be letting him go.  At some point we could use a 15th man.  I wouldn’t use the DPE on him for a waiver claim, but I would sign him to a rest of year or 1+1 minimum salary deal.
“When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”

Leviticus 19:33-34

That's what i was thinking, but who's spot would he take if we still want to use the DPE?

I like him, but unsure how we'd squeeze him in roster wise, not salary wise

If a better option came along with the DPE, I’d have no problem releasing him.  A pro-rated second-year minimum salary isn’t likely to break the Celtics’ bank.

Yeah, that's a good point. This kid can play and is a shooter.
