Xavier Silas
PG/SG - 6’5, 198lbs - 30 years old - 2 years of experience

Back in the NBA six years after his first visit, Silas earned an extremely brief call-up late in the season when the Celtics ran out of ball handlers, largely on account of being available as a G-League player. Silas has been back in that league for the last couple of years with the Northern Arizona Suns, and where once he was a mediocre outside shooter, it is now the bulk of his offensive game.
