A Peak into the Career of Noah Vonleh
At the age of 26, Vonleh has already had a long career that has seen him play for the Charlotte Hornets, Portland Trail Blazers, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Minnesota Timberwolves, Denver Nuggets, and Brooklyn Nets. The Hornets selected him in the ninth round of the 2014 NBA Draft out of Indiana University.
Noah has averaged 4.9 points and 5.1 rebounds per game over the course of 339 regular season games. His finest season came while playing with the Knicks. In his first season, he averaged 8.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 1.9 assists/game.
He most recently spent last season competing for the Shanghai Sharks in China.
Vonleh did not play in the NBA from 2021-22. He participated in four games with the Nets in the 2020–21 season.
If Vonleh is selected, the Celtics may use him as a quality backup player off the bench because of his potential as a role player. Additionally, he is still young enough to advance in the appropriate system undoubtedly.
At such a young age, he already has tons of experience.
The Celtics just completed an outstanding campaign in which they finished as the second seed in the Eastern Conference. The same season, they advanced all the way to the NBA Finals.
The Golden State Warriors, in the Finals, defeated them in six games.
