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