Report: Celtics sign guard Max Strus to two-way contract

After signing Javonte Green to a partially guaranteed deal on Thursday, the Celtics reportedly made another move.

Boston signed guard Max Strus to a two-way contract, per Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports.

Strus averaged 9.7 points in Celtics Summer League and shot 45 percent from beyond the arc. He averaged 20.1 points and 5.9 rebounds per game last season with DePaul.

C's fans will have their fingers crossed that Tacko Fall will be the next to sign a new contract. According to Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, they're trying to get a deal done with the 7-foot-7 phenom.
