Report: Celtics signing free agent F Lamar Stevens

The Boston Celtics agreed to terms with free agent forward Lamar Stevens, The Athletic reported on Friday.

Stevens, 26, started 25 of his 62 games with Cleveland last season, averaging 5.3 points and 3.3 rebounds.

Undrafted out of Penn State in 2020, he appeared in 165 games (38 starts) over three seasons with the Cavaliers. He was part of a three-team trade with the Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat on July 6, and was waived by the Spurs on July 17.

Known for his defensive skills, Stevens can help offset the loss of Marcus Smart in a June trade to the Memphis Grizzlies.
