The Boston Celtics are set to sign point guard DJ Steward per recent reporting from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Steward’s potential addition to the Celtics’ roster comes in the form of a training camp deal, with the opportunity to compete for a two-way contract.
The former Duke guard is coming off a year in the G League where he played 28 regular season tilts, averaging 12.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game at that level. He showcased shooting skills, with a 45.8% overall field goal percentage and a 40.9% efficiency rate from beyond the arc. The 21-year-old had gone undrafted in 2021 after a single season of college basketball at Duke, where he put up 13.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.1 steals per game.
If you are not familiar with his game, check out this highlight reel from one of his better contests in the NBA’s 2023 Las Vegas Summer League in the clip embedded below.
