Report: The Celtics have agreed to a training camp with the former Duke guard appeared in the original NBC Sports Boston
The Boston Celtics’ training camp roster has grown larger.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Saturday that the Celtics and former Duke guard DJ Steward have agreed to hold training camp.
Steward averaged 13 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game in a season at Duke in 2020-21. He went undrafted in 2021 and played on the Sacramento Kings summer team.
Steward has spent the past two seasons in the G League with the Stockton Kings. The 21-year-old averaged 12 points and 4.3 assists per game, while shooting 40.5 percent from 3-point range and 85.2 percent at the free throw line for Stockton last season.
Teams can have up to three players on bilateral contracts. The Celtics currently have two of those players – JD Davison and Jay Scrubb – so another two-man deal is available for Steward and other players to vie for.
