Report: Boston Celtics sign forward Taylor Funk to Exhibit 10 deal

The Boston Celtics continue to make moves in order to solidify their training camp roster for the looming 2023-24 NBA season according to new reporting from CLNS Media’s Bobby Manning. Per the CLNS Media reporter, the Celtics have signed forward Taylor Funk to an Exhibit 10 contract ahead of Boston’s training camp. The deal will allow Boston to convert Funk to a two way player should the Celtics like what they see.

The 26-year-old Funk put up 13.4 points per game and 5.5 rebounds per game on 45.1% from the field overall last season, and 37% from beyond the arc at Utah State last season, according to Manning, and played in the NBA’s 2023 Las Vegas Summer League with the Miami Heat.

There, the 6-foot-8 swingman logged 3.5 points per game on 5-for-19 shooting, going 4-of-17 from deep.

While Funk is still clearly a bit raw around the edges, his length, size, and shooting flash enough potential that the Lancaster native has a solid shot of making the team as a two way player.
