The Boston Celtics are preparing to hold an open competition for their final roster spots at training camp next month, league sources told The Athletic. The Celtics’ roster currently has 12 players on guaranteed NBA contracts (including Al Horford, whose deal is mostly guaranteed), plus two more players (Mfiondu Kabengele and JD Davison) on two-way deals.
JD Davison’s mom was always there. Katrina Davison would go to work her day job, make it to her son’s basketball game, then slip out the door after the final buzzer to make it to her second job on the graveyard shift. She never failed to show up, so Davison did the same. Even though they came from Lowndes County, Ala., with a population of just over 10,000, they believed he could make it. So, she kept working and so did he. “My mom, she had a couple of jobs, but she came to every high school game every time. Every time the game ended, she had to go to work,” Davison told The Athletic. “I think she was so supportive that it pushed me to another level to help her pursue her dream and make it so one day, she didn’t need to be working.”
The decision was to stay at Calhoun High School down the road from his home, where his three older brothers had also played. It was a small school in a small community, but Davison’s motto was “small town, big dreams.” He and his family believed he had to stay at home in Calhoun to have the best chance of making it out. “Coming from where I’m from, no one got highly recruited,” Davison said. “So that was just going across in my mind, will I get recruited? So I just went off to EYBL to get recruited and just stayed in my hometown to put on for them.”
