Quantcast


Per the NBA's transaction wire, the Celtics have added a pair of bodies to bring their training-camp roster up to the league maximum of 20--Jalen Jones from Texas A&M, and Damion Lee out of Louisville:


All this really means is that there will be some confusion next month when coaches yell out "Jaylen," and for the second consecutive preseason the C's will have a "D. Lee" in the box scores.

Jones and Lee join Marcus Georges-Hunt on the short list of "practice squad" type guys with no real chance to make the team.  Boston must get down to 15 players before the start of the regular season.  Here's an updated roster breakdown and projected depth chart:

1-5
Isaiah Thomas
Avery Bradley
Jae Crowder
Amir Johnson
Al Horford

6-10
Terry Rozier
Marcus Smart
Jaylen Brown
Jonas Jerebko
Kelly Olynyk

11-12
