Jabari Bird always believed he was an NBA player. After a year of hard work at the pro level, he is proving himself to be right on that front. The 2017 second-round pick is finalizing a two-year deal with the Celtics for a 15-man roster spot, according to a report from Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports. Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe indicates that the first year of the deal will be guaranteed.
