The Boston Celtics are reportedly on the verge of a roster move. The Celtics are reportedly signing a veteran guard out of Europe who starred collegiately in the United States.

ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Boston is close to a deal with Brad Wanamaker, a 28-year-old guard out of Europe.

Wanamaker, a 6-foot-4 guard, played collegiately at Pittsburgh. He went undrafted in the 2011 NBA Draft.

The Philadelphia native has been overseas ever since. He most-recently played for Fenerbahçe, a team in Turkey.

"EuroLeague guard Brad Wanamaker is finalizing a deal to join the Boston Celtics next season, league sources tell ESPN," Wojnarowski reported.

Wanamaker was one of the best guards in Europe last season. He was named to the All-EuroLeague Second Team and was the Turkish President's Cup winner. Wanamaker previously played in Germany and was the German BBL Most Valuable Player in 2016.

The Celtics have some questions at the guard position moving forward, with Marcus Smart set to hit restricted free agency and Terry Rozier potentially being used as a trade chip.
