After Doc Rivers hinted at trimming down the roster to 14 bodies last night, the Boston Celtics made it official after practice this afternoon, cutting swingman Gilbert Brown, and big man Michael Sweetney. While the C’s like Brown, and always enjoy two weeks of Sweetney in training camp, it’s apparent the C’s want to be ready to pounce on any interesting free agent that becomes available in the upcoming days as final cuts/buyouts are done.
For now, the C’s will hold strong at 14 on the roster, as Greg Steimsma looks to be the training camp invitee that has earned himself a spot thanks to his size and standout play last night.
Stay tuned to the upcoming days to CelticsHub for the latest on how Boston may end up filling this open spot on the free agent market.
