Report: Ex-Knicks, Nets guard to join Celtics at training camp


The Boston Celtics will enter training camp next week with an overhauled roster, and a newcomer will join them to compete for a spot on the squad.

Fourth-year guard Theo Pinson will report to Celtics training camp when it begins next Tuesday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Wednesday.

Forsberg: Is this Celtics' offense good enough to compete?

An undrafted free agent out of North Carolina in 2018, Pinson spent his first two seasons with the Brooklyn Nets before joining the New York Knicks for the 2020-21 campaign.

The 25-year-old scored just two points total (1 for 9 shooting) in 17 games for the Knicks while on a two-year contract but was a high-energy bench contributor in Brooklyn, living up to the "Spark Plug" nickname he earned in college.

The Celtics also worked out free agent Gary Clark this week but hadn't reached an agreement with him as of Wednesday, per a report.
