The Boston Celtics are waiving camp invitees Ryan Arcidiacono and Juwan Morgan according to The Athletic’s Jay King. It seems probable that Morgan will end up with the Maine Red Claws as an affiliate player, while Arcidiacono’s future is less clear given he has no two way eligibility remaining.
The Athletic’s Jared Weiss reported Thursday evening that point guard Chris Clemons was signed by the team to an exhibit-10 deal, which is usually done to retain affiliate rights to a player in the G League (Tacko Fall is a rare example of such a player making the team as a two way player from such a deal) as the team inches closer to finalizing its 2021-22 regular-season roster.
Clemons had seen his previous two way deal with the Houston Rockets converted to a full NBA contract in 2019-20 before tearing his Achilles tendon.
The team now stands at 19 regular, two way or camp deals, and will need to slim down by two more players to make it to the regular-season limit of 17 total players counting two way players.
It seems likely that Boston will at least consider one of Theo Pinson and Garrison Mathews for its remaining two way slot, with veteran forward Jabari Parker’s prospects looking brighter after having survived this round of cuts.
