A 29-year-old one-dimensional sharpshooter, Mulder won’t likely make the team this season but could end up in Maine.
Vincent Valerio-Bodon – wing
A 2023 undrafted 6-foot-10 wing with the size of a forward but the fluidity of a guard, Valerio-Bodon has a real shot of making the team as a two way player.
Jay Scrubb – wing
Scrubb has potential as a two way shooting guard after three seasons in the league with the Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Clippers, but has yet to settle his jumper despite shooting 39.5% from deep in college.
Justin Bean – forward
Standing at 6-foot-7, the 26-year-old Utah State alum put up 10.2 points and 6.9 rebounds per game while shooting 36.7% from 3 with the Memphis Hustle last season.
Aleksander Balcerowski – center
A 7-foot-1 Polish big man Boston has been pursuing for some time, he logged 9.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game for Gran Canaria last season in Spain’s Liga ACB.
Jordan Walsh – wing
Boston’s No. 38 pick from this year’s draft, fans will be excited to see how good his defense — and how bad his jumper — are in Sin City.
Kamar Baldwin – guard
A member of the Maine Celtics, Baldwin recorded 14.8 points, 4.9 boards, 5.8 assists, and 1.5 steals per game in Portland last season while shooting 36.7% from deep.
Another familiar face, Champagnie joined the Celtics roster as depth insurance last season and may make next season’s regular roster in the same role.
