Morgan is a former standout at Indiana who went undrafted in 2019. He ended up signing a two-way deal with the Jazz, followed later by a standard contract in December 2020.
Like Kornet, Morgan is a long shot to make the final roster, but very well could end up earning up to $50,000 should he stick with Boston’s G League affiliate.
“Once Boston’s acquisition of Juan Hernangomez is complete, the club will have 14 players on guaranteed contracts, plus Jabari Parker with a small partial guarantee,” wrote Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors. “Morgan would have to make a pretty strong impression during the preseason to crack the 15-man roster, but the Celtics do have a two-way slot open alongside Sam Hauser.”
