Boston cuts DJ Steward, Jay Scrubb, Wenyen Gabriel; what’s next for the Celtics?

The Boston Celtics made some minor waves in the NBA media sphere this week by releasing former Duke point guard DJ Steward, two way wing Jay Scrubb, and former Los Angeles Lakers big man Wenyen Gabriel, while ex-Cleveland Cavaliers swingman Lamar Stevens remains on the team for the moment. What does this tell us about their plans for the season ahead?

Potential options for the open two way contract slot are likely being explored by the team’s front office, and the Celtics could elect to go into the start of the 2023-24 NBA season with an open roster spot for flexibility and cap savings — or they could scoop up one of the many fringe players currently trying to find a home for the season ahead right now in the league’s version of musical chairs.

The hosts of the CLNS Media “How Bout Them Celtics” podcast sat down to think over what Boston might do on a recent episode.
