The Celtics officially completed their previously reported deals with big man Luke Kornet and guard Chris Clemons on Friday, signing both players to training-camp contracts, per RealGM’s transactions log.
Kornet, 26, has appeared in a total of 133 regular-season games for the Knicks, Bulls and Celtics since entering the NBA in 2017-18 out of Vanderbilt. The 7-foot-2 forward/center was traded from Chicago to Boston at the 2021 deadline and played a semi-regular role for the Celtics down the stretch, putting up 4.4 points and 2.9 rebounds in 18 games (14.1 minutes).
Clemons played on a two-way deal with Houston two seasons ago after going undrafted out of Campbell. He appeared in 33 games that year but he tore his Achilles prior to the 2020-21 campaign. He was waived in January after Houston acquired Kevin Porter Jr.
