The Boston Celtics stay busy on the team-building front after having signed forward Juwan Morgan to a camp deal by bringing back big man Luke Kornet on an Exhibit-10 deal to compete for a spot with the Celtics on their 2021-22 roster. per Forbes Sports’ Chris Grenham.
Kornet came to Boston as part of the trade that sent veteran center Daniel Theis to the Chicago Bulls at the 2021 NBA trade deadline and helped provide valuable depth with some shooting to the team’s frontcourt rotation in the latter third of the 2020-21 season. The signing seems to indicate that the Celtics may yet make changes to their roster as it currently stands given the team is currently at the regular-season limit of 15 players.
That could take the shape of further consolidatory trades as was the case with the two-for-one deal that sent out Carsen Edwards and Kris Dunn for Juancho Hernangomez or cutting forward Jabari Parker, whose contract is only guaranteed for $100,000.
Unlike Morgan, Kornet is not eligible for a two way slot with four seasons of NBA experience already under his belt. The 7-foot-2 Vanderbilt product logged 4.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per game with Boston last season.
