The Boston Celtics are evidently looking to find a prospect to add to their third and final open two way roster spot to complement wing Jay Scrubb and floor general JD Davison according to new reporting from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Per Woj, undrafted DJ Steward, an alumnus of Duke, “has agreed on a training camp deal with the Boston Celtics”.
The former Blue Devil will compete for a two way contract in camp with the Celtics as Boston continues their efforts to identify cheap depth to support the roster as they pursue a title in their 2023-24 campaign. Steward, a 21-year-old, 6-foot-2 guard, played just one season at Duke last season, where the Chicago native logged 13 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.1 steals per game while shooting 34.1% from beyond the arc and 42.6% overall.
Since going undrafted in 2021, Steward has played for the Sacramento Kings affiliate in the G League, the Stockton Kings, where he put up 13.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game.
