Report: Celtics expected to sign Marcus Georges-Hunt to training camp roster

ESPN is reporting that Marcus Georges-Hunt may be about to join the Celtics at their pre-season training camp. The 20-man roster is currently full, so if the report is correct, Boston would be required to drop a player from the ranks.

The first name that comes to mind is Jabari Bird. His status with the team remains on hold for now. Bird is dealing with very serious felony charges and is apart from the team. Both the Celtics and the League thus far have made no decision on Jabari's fate, and his future remains in Limbo. He is currently signed to one of Boston's 15-man roster spots.

Georges-Hunt is a 24-year-old, 6'5" shooting guard who has spent time with the G-League Maine Red Claws. His addition to training camp would most likely mean one of the most-recent additions (Justin Bibbs, Nick King and Jeff Roberson) would be waived. Waiving Bird would open up both the training camp slot and full-time roster spot.

We expect a decision on Marcus' signing very soon. Stay tuned.
