Many players have had the honor of donning the green and white jersey over the years. They have come and go. It seems as if every year, the Celtics roster has been altered in a way. Have you ever wondered where some of those players have gone?

Fab Melo-

Drafted as a big man out of Syracuse, Melo was expected to crash boards and block shots. He did anything but that in the NBA. But he did break the D-League record for most blocks with 14. He went back and forth between the NBA and D-League. Melo was then traded to Memphis for Dontè Green. Fab Melo was waived by Memphis 6 days later. He then signed with the Dallas Mavericks only to be released the following month. The Maine Red Claws (Celtics D-League Team) proceeded to trade his rights to the Texas Legends. Maybe 2 more years at Syracuse could have helped him.

Terrence Williams- 

Signed to a 10 day contract, Williams made his debut against the Lakers. Not only were his shoes amazing, but his style of play as well. This led to Boston signing Williams to a mutli-year deal, only to be waived on June 30 due to legal troubles. Williams then signed with the Turkish, Türk Telekom, only to leave after 2 games. He then signed with the Los Angeles D-Fenders, where he broke the single-game scoring record with 50.

D.J. White-

After being signed to a pair of 10-day contracts, White was signed to a multi-year deal. Although he saw most of his time on the bench, It seemed as if Boston thought he could help them down the road. He wound up being traded to Brooklyn in the block-buster trade. He was waived 6 days later. He joines the Chicago Bulls for training camp, but was waived. He then signed with the Sichuan Blue Whales for the 13-14 CBA Season. He is currently with the San Miguel Beerman. 

Shavlik Randolph-

Signed to a multi-year deal, after two 10-day contracts, Randolph was a fan favorite who crashed the boards. He put up averages of 4.4 PPG, and 4.2 RPG. He was eventually released when the Celtics had to trim down their roster. After, he signed with the Foshan Long Lions of China. He then signed with the Phoneix Suns on March 1 for the rest of the season.
