The Celtics have invited former Penn State guard Tim Frazier, Kansas State swingman Rodney McGruder, and Indiana forward Christian Watford to training camp, according to reports. With Colton Iverson signing with a team in Spain and Mike Moser likely headed to another training camp, the Celtics will enter camp with 21 players. Chris Babb and Chris Johnson are under nonguaranteed contracts and the club has yet to announce the Evan Turner deal, making their 15-man roster rather uncertain. Center Vitor Faverani remains under contract as well as Joel Anthony, who accepted his $3.8 million option for next season. Training camp is likely to remain at the team’s Waltham practice facility and not at Salve Regina in Newport R.I.
Which brings us to Chris Johnson, one of few Celtics working with a non-guaranteed contract. Johnson’s contract status certainly has him on the outside looking-in, there are plenty of reasons the 6-foot-6 swingman’s camp is “cautiously optimistic” about his chances of sticking with the Green team. “So far, everything has been positive,” his agent Marc Cornstein, told CSNNE.com in a phone interview on Tuesday. “We’re well aware of the roster additions. He has a great relationship with the Celtics organization and the coaching staff and as I said, everything we have heard thus far as been positive so we’re cautiously optimistic about his future with the Celtics.”
The Celtics would love to use Bogans’s contract in a trade that would perhaps net a draft pick and create salary-cap space and have been holding onto that option. It is uncertain if the Celtics would waive Bogans before the season or offer a camp invitation since he has been away from the team since February.
