The Boston Celtics waived one fan favorite which could lead to an opportunity for their latest fan favorite.

The Guerschon Yabusele era, revered for its throwback velour tracksuits and bow-and-arrow slinging post-3-point celebrations, ended Wednesday when the Boston Celtics waived the 23-year-old big man.

Ultimately, the Celtics' open roster spot could go to veteran help for the frontcourt on a minimum deal. The team can use its open spot to ensure summer league celebrity Tacko Fall stays on their roster, though there's no rush to do such until rival teams begin inquiring about his availability. He now has 18 points on 8-of-9 shooting through two Summer League games.

Fall - who first grabbed the nation's attention by going toe-to-toe with Zion Williamson in the second round of the NCAA Tournament - agreed to an Exhibit 10 contract with the Celtics.

The Forbes list, released Wednesday, ranks 100 celebrities, including musicians, film stars, athletes and comedians. The oldest person on the list is Beatles' legend Sir Paul McCartney, 77-years-old, at number 62 with $48 million.

The Celtics made SIX selections in 2016: Jaylen Brown, Yabusele, Ante Zizic, Demetrius Jackson, Ben Bentil and Abdel Nader.

He was seen as a raw talent but failed to develop in his time with the team. Yabusele, considered one of the best worldwide prospects at the time, spent his first year in China.

According to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe, the Celtics' roster might undergo even more change before the season starts up in October.
