Per Weiss, the former Washington Wizards sharpshooter turned down the two way slot to try and find a full roster slot elsewhere, particularly given the Celtics’ tax burden makes converting his deal into a regular one this season unlikely. Pinson, however, may yet end up a Boston two way player given the team is sending him to the Maine Celtics, and could still elect to give him the slot if it doesn’t like what it sees from players cut by other teams.
There is a robust field of potential suitors for that two way slot, but like Mathews they would of course have to be interested in taking it at the expense of an NBA roster spot opportunity opening for them.
There’s good reason to take care with Williams’ health. https://t.co/KY5XKtrhiE

Players will begin to blink and take the guaranteed money over the handful of remaining slots likely to open up in the short term, but this could theoretically drag out days or even weeks before being resolved on Boston’s end.
