It appears that the Boston Celtics are starting to fill out their roster for the upcoming 2017-2018 regular season. 

Just a couple days after signing 2016 second round pick Abdel Nader to a 4-year deal, it has been reported that the C’s are set to do the same with 2017 second rounder Semi Ojeleye.

Ojeleye, who started his collegiate career at Duke and later transferred to SMU, was drafted by the C’s with the 37th overall pick in last month’s draft.

Since his selection, the 22-year-old has played for Boston’s summer league teams in both Utah and Las Vegas.

In five games, Ojeleye has averaged 10.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and one assist per game.

While at Duke, Ojeleye struggled to get on the court in two seasons. Transferring to SMU, however, proved to be the right decision for the forward as he put together a strong season over the course of the 2016-2017 campaign.

Ojeleye averaged 18.9 points and 6.8 boards for the Mustangs last season, on his way to winning the American Athletic Conference’s Player of the Year award.
