A 6-foot-8 German capable of playing both forward and center, Theis will return to Boston after averaging 5.7 points and shooting 54.9 percent from the field (both highs in his two-season NBA career), and with 5.5 points and 3.9 rebounds per game in 129 games with the Celtics since coming over from the EuroLeague in 2017.
