Top Luke Kornet News

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Solid production off bench

    Kornet contributed 10 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds and two assists in 13 minutes during Sunday's 139-110 victory over the Grizzlies.

    Celtics head coach Ime Udoka went to the bench early in this one, as Boston held a commanding lead and wanted to keep its regulars fresh for the postseason. Kornet took advantage of the increased opportunity by scoring a season-high 10 points and grabbing at least five rebounds for the third time this season.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Sees eight minutes in win

    Kornet registered four points (2-2 FG), three rebounds and one block over eight minutes in Sunday's 144-102 home win over the Wizards.

    Boston blew out the Wizards, allowing coach Ime Udoka to play all of his bench players. The recent injury to center Robert Williams (knee) has only meant a minor uptick in minutes for Kornet. Over the Boston's last seven games, the seven-footer has averaged 6.4 minutes per game, with three DNP's. Between stints with the Celtics, Cavaliers and Bucks, Kornet has played in a dozen games this season.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Blocks seven shots off bench

    Kornet logged 19 points (8-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven blocks, six rebounds, five assists and one steal across 27 minutes during Thursday's 107-87 win over the Motor City Cruise.

    Though he almost scored 20 points and distributed the ball well Thursday, Kornet's block tally was an unparalleled standout. His 7-foot-2 height will be helpful for a Maine Celtics team lacking good rim protection without him. And despite not starting against Motor City, there is the possibility Kornet could start in place of teammate John Bohannon soon.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Assigned to Maine

    Kornet was assigned to the G League's Maine Celtics on Thursday.

    Kornet saw minimal playing time with Boston after joining the Celtics on a contract for the rest of the season in mid-February. He should see additional playing time in the G League.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Will join Celtics

    The Celtics are planning to sign Kornet to a rest-of-season contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    After Thursday's trades, the Celtics were left with five open roster spots, and Kornet will help give Boston some more depth in the frontcourt. He has some familiarity with the franchise, as he played 18 games with Boston last season and has been seeing G League minutes for the Maine Celtics this year. Kornet will presumably continue seeing most of his action in the G League.

  • Luke Kornet: Records double-double

    Kornet logged 20 points (7-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 assists and five rebounds across 24 minutes during a 142-117 win Saturday against the Westchester Knicks.

    Surprisingly, Kornet logged a double-double without recording many rebounds. The versatile center is averaging 15.5 points and 4.7 assists across six G League games this month.

  • Luke Kornet: Supplies all-around stat line

    Kornet logged 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and two blocks across 32 minutes during a 98-86 win Saturday against the Charge.

    Kornet was one of five Maine Celtics players who scored more than 10 points Saturday. The Vanderbilt product has plenty of NBA experience, so he'll look to parlay this latest G League stint into another opportunity.

  • Bucks' Luke Kornet: Won't play Thursday

    Kornet (not injury related) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Warriors.

    Kornet joined the Bucks on a 10-day hardship contract in early January and is no longer with the team, signaling that his time in Milwaukee is coming to an end, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Assuming he doesn't earn another 10-day contract, it wouldn't be surprising to see the 26-year-old return to the G League at some point.

  • Bucks' Luke Kornet: Joins Milwaukee via hardship

    Kornet agreed Sunday with the Bucks on a 10-day hardship contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Kornet wasn't retained by Cleveland after his 10-day contract expired Friday, but he'll get a look in Milwaukee in the short term while the Bucks look to add depth in the frontcourt behind Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bobby Portis and DeMarcus Cousins. The move to Milwaukee may have some sentimental value for Kornet; his father, Frank, was a second-round draft pick of the Bucks in 1989 and spent his lone pair of NBA seasons with the organization.

  • Cavaliers' Luke Kornet: Agrees to deal with Cleveland

    Kornet agreed Sunday with the Cavaliers on a 10-day hardship exemption, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    After being cut by Boston in training camp, Kornet stuck with the organization's G League affiliate in Maine. He'll now get the opportunity to return to the NBA level on at least a short-term basis after the NBA granted Cleveland an exemption due to the numerous COVID-19 and injury-related absences on the roster. Over 133 career appearances in the NBA with the Knicks, Bulls and Celtics, Kornet has averaged 5.8 points and 2.6 rebounds in 15.2 minutes per game.

  • Luke Kornet: Double-double in win

    Kornet produced 19 points (6-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and four blocks in Thursday's 129-103 win over the G League Raptors.

    Kornet scored a second double-double through eight games en route to a game-high 14 rebounds. The big man is averaging 13.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.4 blocks in 26.6 minutes on the young season.

  • Luke Kornet: All-around performance in win

    Kornet totaled 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, and two blocks in Sunday's 113-108 win over the Blue Coats.

    Kornet rebounded from his last performance, stuffing the stat sheet, and edged close to a triple-double. The former Chicago Bull did turn the ball over four times in 27 minutes, and perhaps needs to work on protecting the ball better.

  • Luke Kornet: Struggles from field in loss

    Kornet recorded 8 points (2-7 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, two assists, and three blocks in Friday's 114-103 loss to the Blue Coats.

    Kornet shot only .286 from the field and hit nothing inside the paint. The 7-foot-2 center is averaging 13.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 2.7 blocks in 28.7 minutes through the team's first three games.

  • Luke Kornet: Posts double-double in 30 minutes

    Kornet recorded 18 points (7-14 FD, 2-5 3Pt, 1-4 FT), 11 rebounds, and seven assists in 30 minutes during Friday's 116-103 win against College Park.

    Kornet came up three dimes short of a triple-double and looks to be a vital piece of the starting five early in the G League season. However, he did register the least amount of minutes among the starters, which is something to keep an eye on going forward.

  • Luke Kornet: Joining G League

    Kornet was waived by the Celtics on Saturday, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

    Kornet signed an Exhibit 10 contract with Boston in September and will join the Maine Celtics to begin the year. He made two preseason appearances this year and averaged 2.5 rebounds in 7.1 minutes per game.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Inks Exhibit 10 with Boston

    Kornet agreed Wednesday to an Exhibit 10 contract with the Celtics, Chris Grenham of Forbes Sports reports.

    Kornet spent the latter portion of last season with the Celtics, where he made 18 appearances and averaged 4.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.1 assists in 14.1 minutes. If he doesn't make the Celtics' final roster, he could end up in the G League with the Maine Red Claws.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Blocks three shots in spot-start

    Kornet ended with four points (2-7 FG, 0-5 3Pt), three rebounds and three blocks in 26 minutes during Sunday's 96-92 loss to New York.

    Kornet was unable to repeat his performance from Saturday, although he has now accumulated 10 blocks across his last three games. The Celtics will now face the Wizards in the play-in tournament and, given there is no certainty Robert Williams (toe) is available to play, Kornet could actually find himself in the rotation down the stretch.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Starting Saturday

    Kornet will start Saturday's contest against the Timberwolves, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports.

    With Robert Williams (toe) and Tristan Thompson (chest) done for the regular season, Kornet should see increased minutes over the next two games. In seven games this season that Kornet has played at least 15 minutes, he's averaged 4.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.1 blocks and 1.7 assists.

  • Celtics' Luke Kornet: Great line in 20 minutes

    Kornet collected 10 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists and three blocks in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 119-115 loss to the Thunder.

    Tristan Thompson got in foul trouble Tuesday, so coach Brad Stevens opted to deploy Kornet for extended minutes. The center played well, reaching season highs in rebounds and assists. While it was a great effort from Kornet, Robert Williams is set to return Wednesday, which could result in Kornet being used only in spot situations.
