Report: C's add McGruder, Watford for camp


The Boston Celtics have signed Rodney McGruder and Christian Watford, according to a report by Hoop365.

Like the recent addition of Tim Frazier, it appears that McGruder and Watford are training camp bodies that could be bound for the Maine Red Claws of the D-League.

The Hoop365 report notes that "Watford [is] a jumpshooting combo forward [who] attended summer league this year with both the Detroit Pistons and Golden State Warriors" while McGruder is a "6-4 off-guard [and] is also only one year into a professional career, spending the bulk of his first campaign in Hungary with Atomeromu."

The Celtics are now at the league maximum of 20 signed players for camp and the team has not formally finalized the signing of free-agent swingman Evan Turner. The team must trim to a maximum of 15 bodies before the start of the regular season.
