The Boston Celtics added another name to their training camp group Wednesday with the addition of free agent guard Theo Pinson, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Pinson’s training camp move to Boston comes following a 2020-21 campaign that saw the 6-foot-5 guard total two points (1-for-9 shooting), one assist, and five rebounds in 34:03 of action over 17 games with the New York Knicks.
Prior to his one-season stint with the Knicks, Pinson played two seasons with the Brooklyn Nets, and set career-best marks in points per game (4.5), rebounds per game (2.0), and minutes per game (11:45) as a rookie with the Nets in 2018-19.
Overall, the former North Carolina Tar Heel has appeared in 68 NBA games, with a 30.0 field goal percentage (20.1 percent from deep), 95 rebounds, 78 assists, and 23 steals in just under 611 minutes of action.
Most recently, the 25-year-old played with the Milwaukee Bucks on the team’s Summer League roster, where he averaged 5.8 points per night and shot 22.9 percent from the field in over 21 minutes per game.
Pinson joins a crowded Celtics camp that now features 19 players in total.
