The Celtics have waived forward Bruno Caboclo, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets.
Boston signed Caboclo to a training camp deal late last month with the expectation he’d compete for a roster spot, so the timing is somewhat surprising. It’s possible the Celtics found a more desirable option, or that Caboclo had a better offer overseas.
His contract included Exhibit 10 language, so it’s also possible he could resurface with the Maine Celtics, Boston’s G League team.
The 20th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Caboclo appeared in a total of 105 NBA regular season games across seven seasons with the Raptors, Kings, Grizzlies, and Rockets. He averaged 4.2 PPG and 2.6 RPG on .403/.308/.836 shooting in 12.3 MPG.
Caboclo, who turns 27 on Wednesday, finished the 2020/21 season in France, then returned to his home country for the ’21/22 campaign, signing with Sao Paolo FC. Caboclo led the club to a BCL Americas title and earned MVP honors in the Novo Basquete Brasil, which is Brazil’s top basketball league.

Brazil MVP can’t even warm the bench in the NBA
I was hoping he’d get a spot cause he’s a favorite of mine. But Vonleh and Layman are just better players
Vonleh becomes more important without Williams, and they still have smaller options at the 5 without him, and should have enough depth at the 4. Justin Jackson was a good addition for depth on the wing, which was their last need, in my opinion. They should be fine
The Celtics are two years away from anything
Let’s have a team full of PGs and SFs smh
Celtics are dropping fast! But maybe we’ll find another rotation player as a result. I thought Mfiondu Kabengele looked good in Summer League.
