16. Dalano Banton
At 6-foot-9, Banton has outstanding length at the guard position, but he's a poor shooter (27.5 percent from deep in his career), which doesn't make him a good fit in a Joe Mazzulla-based offense that often centers around the 3-pointer.
With that being said, his energy could provide a nice spark for the team off the bench.
Banton never stuffed the stat sheet during his time with the Raptors, but he attended high school in Massachusetts, so maybe he'll be able to kick things into a new gear during his homecoming tour.
15. Wenyen Gabriel
After losing Robert Williams in the deal that brought Jrue Holiday to Boston, the Celtics acted quickly, with president of basketball operations Brad Stevens bringing in Gabriel on a training camp contract.
All signs are pointing toward Gabriel landing a roster spot, and like Banton, he's another player with local ties after attending high school in Wilbraham, Massachusetts. Gabriel is a very intriguing add, and he should bring some physicality down low, something Boston is lacking at the moment.
Expect Gabriel to be an improved version of what Noah Vonleh was last season. Of course, the Celtics will be hoping Gabriel takes on a bit of a bigger workload than the latter, who averaged just 7.4 minutes across 23 games (one start) before being dealt to the San Antonio Spurs in early January.
14. Oshae Brissett
Stats don't tell the full story of what Brissett brings to the table, but if you do happen to look at them, turn your attention to the 2020-21 season.
Brissett averaged 10.9 points and 5.5 rebounds while hitting 42.3 percent of his shots from 3-point range. Granted, he only played 21 games (16 starts), but he then followed up with a respectable 2021-22 campaign in which he posted averages of 9.1 points and 5.3 rebounds across 67 games (25 starts).
Although he took a bit of a step back last season, Brissett has shown that he's capable of being a double-digit scorer off the bench -- or at least close to it. He should have no problem getting good minutes in the second unit, and one look at his social media feed tells you just how excited he is to be in Boston.
