Hauser is a really intriguing option, and not just because his brother is already on the team.
Last season at Michigan State, Hauser shot a stunning 46.1 percent from beyond the arc. He ended up signing a two-way contract with the Utah Jazz as an undrafted free agent, but he was waived earlier this month.
At 6-foot-9, Hauser is better suited to play at the 4, and he would need time to develop in order to guard opponents at the 5. The main concern with Hauser is that he isn't NBA-ready by any means, especially on the defensive end, but seeing him and Sam play together for the first time since their Marquette days (2018-19) would be fun to watch.
Noel is one of the many names that has popped up as a potentially good fit for the Celtics, and it's easy to see why.
The nine-year NBA veteran is one of the most experienced big men currently available, and he also has local ties, hailing from Malden, Massachusetts.
Over the past three seasons, Noel, the sixth overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, has experienced a steep decline, though, bouncing around to three teams during that span. He hasn't really been able to carve out a role on an NBA roster since the 2020-21 campaign, when he averaged 24.2 minutes across 64 games (41 starts) with the Knicks.
