Chris Grenham: The Celtics officially waived Juwan Morgan and Ryan Arcidiacono yesterday, according to the NBA’s transaction wire.
Adam Himmelsbach: Celtics are expecting Ryan Arcidiacono and Juwan Morgan will join the Maine Celtics as affiliate players, per source. They’d still be free to sign with another team.
The Boston Celtics agreed to a deal with Juwan Morgan, his agency Edge Sports told HoopsHype. Morgan, 24, spent the past two seasons with the Utah Jazz and started multiple playoff games during the 2019-20 season.
The Jazz did not extend a qualifying offer to forward Juwan Morgan, although sources say the Jazz are keeping an open door on Morgan’s return.
Ben Anderson: Also sounds like Dennis Lindsey and the @UtahJazz are fully planning on Juwan Morgan returning. "Juwan Morgan, as an example, was plus eight with Rudy, (when Morgan was) at the four, and he gives us a switch five."
Tony Jones: Juwan Morgan’s guarantee date is imminent. I don’t have confirmation either way, but barring something unforeseen, I expect his contract to be guaranteed for the remainder of the season. The Jazz love him. He’s actually at the edge of the rotation as of now
The Utah Jazz announced today that the team has signed forward Juwan Morgan. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. In a related move, the team has waived forward Stanton Kidd.

Tim Reynolds: The moment of silence ended with this: “The Heat urges you to contact your state senators by calling 202-224-3121 to leave a message demanding their support for common sense gun laws.” Some fans applauded as that was announced.

Jared Weiss: Marcus Smart’s ankle will allow him to move “good enough” per Ime Udoka after testing it at shootaround. “He has enough movement where he’s not restricted in certain areas like a few days ago.” Said Smart can play through the pain.
Andy Larsen: Jazz announce their first draft workout tomorrow. Six players will take part: · R.J. Cole, Connecticut · Tyson Etienne, Wichita State · Johnny Juzang, UCLA · Jared Rhoden, Seton Hall · Akoldah Gak, Australia · Trevion Williams, Purdue
According to sources, Terry Stotts was asked previously if he would have interest in joining the Lakers as an assistant should he not be hired as a head coach. Stotts, sources said, told the team that he has no interest in a role as a lead assistant. Stotts was approached about joining Frank Vogel in that role last season on the Lakers’ bench and also declined, sources said.
