  • Al-Farouq Aminu: Time in Boston ends

    The Celtics didn't re-sign Aminu after his 10-day contract expired Tuesday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Boston moved on from both Aminu and center Norvel Pelle on Tuesday, after both players' services were no longer needed now that the Celtics have most of their roster available again following a wave of COVID-19-related absences. During his week-and-a-half-long stint with Boston, Aminu went unused off the bench.

  • Al-Farouq Aminu: Waived by San Antonio

    The Spurs waived Aminu on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Aminu appeared in only one preseason game due to an illness, which may have cost him a spot on the opening day roster. The 6-foot-8 forward was traded to the Spurs this offseason as a part of the deal that sent DeMar DeRozan to Chicago, but he will likely start the regular season as a free agent.

  • Spurs' Al-Farouq Aminu: Traded to San Antonio

    Aminu, along with Thaddeus Young, a future first-round pick and two second-round picks, has been traded to the Spurs from the Bulls in exchange for DeMar DeRozan, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Aminu arrived in Chicago as part of the Nikola Vucevic trade and exercised his $10.2 million player option for the 2021-22 season, which allowed the Bulls to use his salary to acquire DeRozan. The 30-year-old Aminu has only played in 41 games over the last two seasons and hasn't averaged above 5.0 points per game. It is likely that Aminu makes San Antonio's roster, but his role will be marginal at best.
