3. Noah Vonleh
Selected with the No. 9 overall pick by the Charlotte Hornets, the Salem, Massachusetts native has not yet found his niche in the NBA.
Now with his sixth NBA team, Vonleh could be on the move again and would be a cheaper option for the Celtics.

Sometimes a change of scenery and perhaps going back to his home state will be the boost Noah Vonleh needs.
The talent is certainly there as he has shown an ability to rebound and stretch the floor with a nice jump shot, but really hasn’t settled as a rotation piece. This is where playing in Brad Stevens’ system could benefit Vonleh.
Just 24 years of age, he is a younger option who could flourish in just the right role. He did start to peek a little with the New York Knicks during the 2018-19 NBA season when he averaged a career-high 8.4 points per game and 6.1 rebounds.
Signed to just a one-year, $2 million contract, this is a very low-lost option for Danny Ainge to consider in hopes to at least add some versatile frontcourt depth to the team.
