The Boston Celtics have reportedly added another player to their NBA roster on a partially guaranteed deal.
According to the team's official Twitter account, the Celtics are signing Max Strus to a two-year NBA deal.

Strus, an undrafted free agent out of DePaul, originally signed with the Celtics on a two-way deal before the Las Vegas Summer League. Strus averaged 9.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in four summer league games. So far during the preseason, he has been quieter, averaging 1.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists without scoring in 7.5 minutes per game.
The signing of Strus cleared the way for the Celtics to sign 7-foot-6 big-man Tacko Fall to a two-way contract, and that was one of the biggest reasons that the signing was made. The other, per Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe, was that Strus was willing to add a second non-guaranteed year to his contract.
Strus will now compete with Javonte Green for the 15th and final spot on the Celtics roster. Green, 26, has looked good in training camp and made some monster dunks in his preseason debut.
