Boston Celtics Announce 2023-24 Training Camp Roster

BOSTON, MA – The Boston Celtics announced today that they finalized their training camp roster for the 2023-24 season by adding guard DJ Steward. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Celtics’ training camp roster features eight returning players from last year’s Eastern Conference Finals run, highlighted by All-NBA selections Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown and All-Defense honoree Derrick White. The team embraced six new additions over the offseason including, Dalano Banton, Oshae Brissett, Jrue Holiday, Svi Mykhailiuk, Kristaps Porzingis, and Lamar Stevens. The Celtics have also added Neemias Queta and Jay Scrubb on two-way contracts. They will join returning two-way player J.D. Davison following his rookie season in which he appeared in 12 games for Boston and finished third in the G-League in assists per game (8.7) over his 26 games for the Maine Celtics.

Steward (6-1, 162), 21, has played in 58 career games (21 starts) with the Stockton Kings, the G League affiliate of the Sacramento Kings, from 2021-23. Steward averaged 13.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 4.2 assists in 25.9 minutes per game while shooting 45.4 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from three-point territory. The Chicago native signed with the Kings as an unrestricted free agent after his freshman year at Duke (2020-21), where he averaged 13.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in 24 games (22 starts) to earn ACC All-Freshman Team honors.

Boston opens preseason action against the Philadelphia 76ers at TD Garden on Oct. 8, its first of five preseason contests.
