Celtics to Sign Taylor Funk to Training Camp Deal

The Celtics are signing former Utah State forward Taylor Funk to an Exhibit 10 training camp contract, per Bobby Manning of CLNS Media.Taylor Funk

Funk is 6-foot-8 and played five years with St. Joseph’s before heading to Utah State as a grad transfer. He then went undrafted by the NBA.

In 34 games with Utah State, he averaged 13.4 and shot 37 percent on 3-pointers. He played for the Heat in two NBA summer leagues, including Las Vegas.

The Celtics now have 18 players under contract with the start of camp less than a month away.

An Exhibit 10 contract counts toward the preseason roster, but the regular-season roster unless the player is signed to a standard deal. So look for Funk with the Maine Celtics of the G-League.
