Celtics sign Oshae Brissett for two years

The Boston Celtics have reportedly made their first free agent signing of the summer.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the C’s signed Oshae Brissett to a two-year contract on Friday. Brissett has a player option for the second year of the deal. Brian Robb of MassLive.com adds that this is a minimum veteran contract for the 6-foot-7 forward.

Brissett, 25, averaged 6.1 points and 3.4 rebounds while shooting 38.6 percent from the field (31.1 3 percent) last season off the bench for the Indiana Pacers. C fans may remember him for his standout performance against Boston in February 2022, when he powered Indiana to victory with a game-high 27 points.

It wasn’t the only time Brissett did damage against the Celtics. He’s 14 for 26 (53.8%) on 3-pointers in eight career games against Boston. That’s the most 3s he’s made against any opponent in his career.

Although his numbers from last year may not be obvious, Brissett has shown flashes of intriguing potential in his last two seasons with the Pacers. At the very least, he’ll be a solid depth piece for the frontcourt in 2023-24.
