Former Haverhill High School athlete F. Noah Vonleh, who signed a one-year contract in August with the Boston Celtics, earned one of the team’s 15 roster spots for opening night, according to a report from ESPN.
Opening night is Tuesday, Oct. 18, when the Celtics host the Philadelphia 76ers in the first game of the season.

At Indiana, Vonleh was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year and third team All-Big Ten by the coaches and media.
