Boston Celtics Working Out 3 Free Agent Forwards

The Boston Celtics are still looking to finalize their training camp roster for next month, looking to add a wing for one of their open spots. To that end, they are holding workouts with three free agent forwards this week, all of them in the 6'7" range, who can play both the three and the four.

According to NBA Insider Shams Charania, former Cleveland Cavaliers forward Lamar Stevens and former Phoenix Sun T.J. Warren are two of them.  

Warren is a former first-rounder and was a consistent 15+ point scorer in the league for five consecutive seasons before being felled by consecutive stress fractures in his left foot in 2020. He missed essentially two full seasons before coming back last year, splitting time between the Brooklyn Nets and the Suns, with whom he'd spent his first five years in the league. He's still not back to full capacity, however, as he was limited to 42 games and just 7.5 points. 

Stevens had been with the Cavs for his first three years in the NBA after they signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State. He's been a rotation piece for Cleveland mainly for his strong perimeter defense, while averaging 5.3 points and 2.8 rebounds in 16 minutes per night over his 165 games. 

The other free agent Boston is working out is Louis King, according to insider Michael Scotto of HoopsHype. King has had much less of an impact in his handful of games in the league, averaging just 10.4 minutes a night across 27 games spread out over four seasons with three different teams. He went undrafted out of Oregon in 2019.
