With 12 open roster spots for the 2022-23 NBA season, the Boston Celtics reportedly plan to have prospective players compete to for at least some of those spots. Per reporting from The Athletic’s Jay King, big men Noah Vonleh and Bruno Caboclo, who were recently signed to camp deals, will be among that group, as will veteran forward Justin Jackson and last season’s two-way wing Brodric Thomas.

King also noted 2021-22 two-way wing Matt Ryan “now sounds less likely to return to Boston” despite having recovered from the ankle injury he sustained in the 2022 NBA 2K23 Las Vegas Summer League play for the Celtics.

Interestingly, The Athletic reporter also related “the Celtics are said to prefer younger players who have room to grow and will be more likely to embrace a limited role” over signing any of several still free agent veteran big men. King cited the recently signed two-way big man, Mfiondu Kabengele, as one such player.
