Bird (personal) had been traded to Atlanta, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
Bird has been away from the team since an arrest in September, but dealing him opens up a roster spot for Boston to become active in the buyout market. The Hawks' intentions are unclear, but they'll probably part ways with Bird in short order.
A second-round draft pick in 2017, Bird spent his rookie season on two-way contract and saw action in just 13 games with the Celtics. However, he dominated with the team's G-League affiliate and averaged 19.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.4 steals across 20 games. Showing plenty of promise, Bird will now get a standard two-year deal from Boston, which slots him in as added depth on the wing. While he's a lock to see the court in more games than he did as a rookie, Bird still shouldn't be in consideration for fantasy purposes in the majority of leagues while operating as a deep reserve.
Bird (rest) is expected to play during Sunday's summer league game against Portland.
Bird was given Saturday's tilt off for rest. However, it appears the coaching staff wants him in uniform for the quarterfinals. In four summer league games, Bird has averaged 16.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.8 steals in 29.8 minutes.
