Celtics, Corey Walden Agree To Camp Deal

AUGUST 4TH, 3:01pm: Walden has signed for two years at the minimum salary with a partial guarantee of $25K for this season, according to Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders (Twitter link). Boston has yet to make an official announcement.

JULY 26TH, 10:14am: Corey Walden will be added the Celtics’ training camp roster, A. Sherrod Blakely of tweets. Considering the multitude of point guards the Celtics have on their roster, the 6’2” Walden will face very long odds in terms of making the 15-man roster.

It’s likely Walden’s deal will be a minimum salary arrangement. Boston currently has the flexibility to use cap space to sign Walden, although the team will lose that ability once it officially acquires David Lee on Monday as expected.

Walden, who went undrafted out of Eastern Kentucky, appeared in two games with the Celtics’ summer league team in Las Vegas, averaging 2.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 3.5 steals per game. Walden averaged 18.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists for EKU is his senior season.

    Considering the amount of guards on the Celtics’ roster, especially point guards, it will difficult for Walden to make the first cut.

  2. Ron Owens

    This at least gives the man a chance to be picked by another team, D League or otherwise. All these guys want is a shot. I can’t see this guy being on any 15 man roster. He can show what talent he has and be attractive for an overseas contract as well.

      True. It also give him a more lucrative contract than just signing in D-League. Playing along side NBA talent is good nearly any player’s development as well.

    His making 6 steals in a summer league game, accumulated in just 20 minutes, must have intrigued the staff.
