Report: Celtics sign guard Bryce Brown to training camp roster

Report: Celtics sign guard Bryce Brown to training camp roster

With training camp about to begin and the Celtics looking to add a 20th player to their camp roster, they reportedly had come to terms last week with 6-foot-8 forward Yante Maten. Now, Keith Smith of RealGM reports that the C's never executed that signing and instead have signed guard Bryce Brown.

Both players were All-SEC selections. Brown, a 6-3 guard, led Auburn to the Final Four last season, and Maten was signed by the Miami Heat out of Georgia in 2018. Brown went undrafted this past June and played for the Sacramento Kings' Summer League team. 

Maten played two games for the Heat last season and spent the rest of the season with their G-League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce. He could still find his way to the Celtics' G-League team, the Maine Red Claws, where Brown is likely headed after camp.

That's about as accurate as it gets.

As much as it seems Kanter is making the most of quarantine life, he's itching to get back onto the court. He recently expressed concern about the NBA season potentially getting cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, which especially would be crushing since the C's are in the mix for a title.

Former Celtics star Paul Pierce wants in on virtual game of HORSE

Former Celtics star Paul Pierce wants in on virtual game of HORSE

A virtual game of HORSE? The NBA certainly is trying to get creative amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The NBA and ESPN are working on televising a HORSE competition involving "several high-profile players," according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The competitors would take shots from their home gyms and have to match those of other players.

Will one of those "high-profile players" be former Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce? It's possible, and he wants in on the competition.

The 10-time All-Star actually could make a splash in the competition -- he shot 44.5 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from beyond the arc in his 19-year NBA career. 

If the 42-year-old ends up competing in the competition, the only thing going against him would be his age. However, if he's anything like Tom Brady then he'll be just fine. 

With the NBA season on pause due to the COVID-19 outbreak, a HORSE competition could be pretty fun to watch.
