The Celtics have been urged to replace Jabari Parker on the roster with Jayson Tatum’s “best friend.”

The Boston Celtics are rapidly approaching the start of the 2021-22 season, but there is still a roster spot vacant. The Celtics now have 14 players on standard contracts, one less than the league maximum, following the shocking decision to dismiss former No. 2 overall choice Jabari Parker. That means team president Brad Stevens can examine the free agency market once more if he so desires. The good news is that roster cuts throughout the league have restocked the free agency pool with some interesting players.

Players like Marquese Chriss, Avery Bradley, and Dante Exum have all been available in the last few days, all of whom have been associated to Boston in some manner during their careers. However, the name generating the most noise in Celtics circles appears to be Harry Giles, who may be the only player in the NBA capable of challenging Bradley Beal for the title of Jayson Tatum’s “BFF.”

The former high school sensation was waived by the Los Angeles Clippers on October 16th and is looking for a new team. Giles would soon make Boston, Massachusetts his primary abode if Celtics Twitter had their way. Here’s a sample of the outrage presently swirling on social media:

I’m disappointed the #Celtics decided to let Jabari Parker go. If they sign Harry Giles, I’ll be less disappointed. #BleedGreen

I just realized something…

If the reports are true, the Celtics will most likely pursue Harry Giles.

I’m hoping the Celtics sign Harry Giles in instead of Jabari Parker.

It makes no difference what you say. Harry Giles is a character in the film Harry Giles
