Daniel Theis heading to the Boston Celtics

Daniel Theis

Daniel Theis (204 cm) is on his way to the Boston Celtics (USA-NBA). This is a massive jump for Theis as he has never played in the NBA. The 25-year-old power forward is an elite athlete and a polished stretch-four. He didn’t receive much playing time last season with just 18.3 mpg with Brose Basket (Germany-BBL). In the limited time, Theis still scored 9.5 ppg and grabbed 5.7 rpg with the German squad. Brose also competed in the Euroleague last season where Theis shot 41 percent from deep.

Theis was born in Germany and only signed with German teams during his career. He did attempt to make the Washington Wizards in 2014 with their summer league team. In five summer league games, Theis scored 6.6 ppg with 6.0 rpg and 1.8 bpg. He knows how to play above the rim and has great leaping ability. Now his skills will be put to the test on the biggest stage with one of the best teams in the NBA.
