Brown signed his rookie contract with the Celtics on Thursday.
Brown, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft and the first of the Celtics' three first-round selections, concluded an impressive summer league earlier this month, during which he averaged 16.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.3 steals across 29.0 minutes per game. The 6-foot-7 Brown is a small forward by trade, but offers the versatility to guard shooting guards and power forwards depending on the lineup configuration. His abilities on that end of the court should allow Brown to be a rotation player as a rookie, but it's not expected that he'll produce many fantasy-worthy lines over the course of the season. His three-point shooting remains a work in progress, and with Jae Crowder ahead of him on the depth chart, Brown won't be asked to assume major minutes in his first season.
Iverson agreed Wednesday with the Celtics on a non-guaranteed contract, Jay King of MassLive.com reports.
Iverson was originally a second-round draft pick of the Pacers in 2013, but his rights were dealt to the Celtics on draft day. Three years after turning pro, it looks like Iverson will finally attempt to transition to the NBA, as his contract will at least earn him a spot on the Celtics' training camp roster. Despite his standing as a former draft pick, Iverson stands little chance of claiming a roster spot once the regular season starts, as he'll open camp behind Al Horford, Amir Johnson and Tyler Zeller on the depth chart at center.
Bentil agreed Saturday with the Celtics on a partially guaranteed rookie contract, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.
Bentil, the No. 51 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, is expected to finalize the contract at some point this week, locking him in as a training camp invitee. The forward from Providence averaged just 4.0 points and 3.5 rebounds across 10.4 minutes per game in summer league play, and likely wouldn't be a rotation player for the Celtics if he's able to secure his place on the Celtics roster. According to Himmelbach's sources, Bentil will battle holdovers R.J. Hunter, James Young and John Holland for the 15th and final roster spot during camp.
Jackson has agreed to a guaranteed deal with the Celtics, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.
Drafted with the 45th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft Jackson was not guaranteed a roster spot with the club for the upcoming season. However, the Celtics have opted to continue deepening the depth of their squad as they float all their assets around for potential trades. Jackson posted just 5.2 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 1.0 steals in 16.6 minutes per game during summer league, but apparently showed enough to convince the Celtics to commit to him.
Zeller ended up getting lost in the shuffle last season due to the Celtics' glut of big men, so it wasn't expected that he'd be retained heading into the offseason. However, with Jared Sullinger leaving for the Raptors and Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) unlikely to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season, Zeller will provide some veteran insurance in the frontcourt. Zeller averaged 6.1 points and 3.0 rebounds in 11.8 minutes per game over 60 appearances last season, and while he could see those figures spike while Olynyk is out, the big man will likely get buried on the depth chart when the roster returns to full strength.
