According to RealGM, the Celtics are the leading candidate to acquire the rights to Romero Osby. Osby is in the process of finalizing a deal to sign with the Celtics D-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws. Osby is a 6'8" power forward with an 8'8" standing reach and a 6'9.75" wingspan.
Osby averaged 16 points and 7 rebounds last season at the University of Oklahoma. He was the 51st pick in the draft by the Orlando Magic. Osby played in seven preseason games for the Magic and averaged 5.7 points and four rebounds in 15.4 minutes a game.
He was the final cut by the Magic in training camp. The Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs and Brooklyn Nets have also expressed interest in signing him. Fort Wayne currently owns his rights, but the Red Claws are working to acquire the 23-year-old.
