The Boston Celtics added yet another body to their training camp roster over the weekend, with 7-foot center Neemias Queta signed to the roster on a two-way contract.
Word of Queta’s decision to join the Celtics was first reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
A second-round pick by the Kings in 2021, Queta spent the last two seasons with Sacramento, where he appeared in 20 games over that two-season run, including a career-high 15 appearances in 2021-22.
Overall, the Portuguese-born Queta’s NBA run has featured 57 points on 23-for-47 shooting (a 48.9 field goal percentage), along with 10 blocks and 42 rebounds, in over 148 minutes of action.
The 24-year-old Queta has also made 43 appearances for the Stockton Kings of the G League over the last two seasons, and has averaged 16.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game throughout that run, along with a career-high 16.8 points per game in a 29-game G League sample this past season.
Queta’s signing also gives the Celtics three players signed to two-way contracts for 2023-24, with Queta joining a group already featuring JD Davison and Jay Scrubb.
The Celtics are expected to open training camp on Oct. 3.
