Stevens, 26, is 6-foot-6 and spent each of his first three seasons with the Cavaliers, before being traded to the Spurs this summer. The Spurs waived him shortly after the trade. He has remained an unrestricted free agent since.

A hustling, physical player, Stevens appeared in 62 games last season, averaging 5.3 points and 3.3 rebounds. He also served as a reliable perimeter defender and a guy who made plays that don’t show up on the stat sheet.

Originally undrafted out of Penn State, he had his two-way contract converted to a standard deal in April 2021. 

This is the second report of the Celtics’ interest, as Shams Charania of The Athletic reported back last month that Stevens had worked out for Boston.
