Celtics Roster: Here’s Look At Boston’s 20-Man Group For Training Camp

Half of them didn't play a single game with the Celtics last season


Sep 23, 2021

There’s no better way to highlight the turnover on the Boston Celtics roster this offseason then by pointing out that half their training camp roster didn’t play a single game with them last season.

Boston on Thursday reportedly agreed to a deal with veteran point guard Ryan Arcidiacono, and in doing so hit the 20-man limit for their training camp roster.

It’s tough to peg how good (or bad) of a group they are. For now, we’re going with a playoff-caliber team that could surprise people, but is more likely in the 6-to-8 seed range. Time will tell.

Prognostication aside, here is the group of 20 the Celtics will bring to Brighton later this month.

Ryan Arcidiacono*, Payton Pritchard, Dennis Schröder, Marcus Smart

Jaylen Brown, Sam Hauser+, Juancho Hernangómez, Romeo Langford, Juwan Morgan*, Aaron Nesmith, Jabari Parker, Theo Pinson*, Josh Richardson, Jayson Tatum, Grant Williams

Bruno Fernando, Al Horford, Enes Kanter, Luke Kornet*, Robert Williams

This could actually be a really fun team to watch. They are just loaded with high-energy players, and the collection of guys on camp deals — Morgan, Arcidiacono, Kornet and Pinson — all are fascinating additions. Their paths to the roster are going to be challenging ones, but you could make a case for each as to how they could push for spots.

Ultimately, a lot is undecided with this group, and that could make for a compelling training camp.
