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.
