Celtics Signing Juwan Morgan To Camp Deal

The Celtics have agreed to an Exhibit 10 contract with power forward Juwan Morgan, according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.Juwan Morgan

Morgan, 24, is 6-foot-7 and joins center Luke Kornet as big men added to the training camp roster on Exhibit 10 deals. (Full Kornet post.)

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.”
