Celtics Waive Clarke, Miller, Randolph

4:12pm: All three players have officially been released, the Celtics announced.

3:07pm: The Celtics will waive Coty Clarke, Malcolm Miller and Levi Randolph today, according to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald (Twitter link). Corey Walden, the team’s other camp invitee, will remain for the time being, but all are expected to end up signing with Boston’s D-League affiliate, Bulpett says. Miller, Randolph and Walden have matching $25K guarantees, while Clarke is on a non-guaranteed contract. The release of Clarke, Miller and Randolph will take Boston down to 17 players, 16 of whom have fully guaranteed deals, as our roster count shows.

Clarke, a 23-year-old combo forward, and Miller, a 22-year-old small forward, went scoreless in preseason cameos that encompassed less than a minute of playing time, while the 23-year-old Randolph, a shooting guard, managed three points in slightly more time on the court. The Celtics also got a look at Miller on their summer league team in July, when he averaged 4.0 points in 12.1 minutes across seven appearances.

More pressing for the Celtics is their decision regarding the final preseason cut, which will involve letting go of a full season’s salary unless they work a trade. Perry Jones III has appeared to be most at risk for a release among the 16 Celtics with full guarantees, as Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe said to Hoops Rumors last month, but Jones has drawn praise from Celtics coach Brad Stevens and others.

Who do you think should be the final cut for the Celtics? Leave a comment to let us know.

    Looks like it’ll be Jones, hopefully he can be traded but I’m guessing it’ll be for 2nd rounder that won’t convey if he his. Hard to imagine a team giving up more then the Celtics did in order to acquire him, especially considering okc sweetend the pot with a guaranteed second rounder. I never count ainge out of making out like bandit again however. To bad, I’d rather see Jones on the roster then jerebko. Jonas was solid last year but in reality he isn’t going to be playing as much and that spot can be occupied by Jones for a quarter of the price. I think if the Celtics had gotten their hands on Jones earlier in the off-season that would have likely played out. Instead of Jonas inking a two year 10million deal.

      Interesting take on Jonas. The Celtics can use some experienced depth on the wing, and that’s probably why he’s there. The C’s have too many power forwards to give him much time as a small-ball four. But, Jones probably has more upside, and it would be interesting if the Celtics had pulled off the Jones trade before their deal with Jerebko, like you say.

      Jerebko has some value next year due to his salary being non- guaranteed. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Danny package him into something to balance salaries next offseason.
