Gabriel, 26, spent last season with the Lakers and at times offered some underrated and valuable minutes. In 68 appearances, he averaged 5.5 points and 4.2 rebounds. In Boston, he will get every opportunity to fill the void left by Williams, sent to the Trail Blazers as part of the deal for veteran guard Jrue Holiday.

Gabriel has also spent time with the Clippers, Nets, Trail Blazers and Kings since entering the NBA out of Kentucky in 2019. He is a native of Khartoum, Sudan.

Terms of the contract weren’t released, though the deal is likely for one year at the veteran’s minimum.

Gabriel is aiming to become a regular part of a big man rotation that also includes Al Horford and Kristaps Porzingis, and potentially Oshae Brissett, Lamar Stevens and Luke Kornet.
