Penn State Hoops Alum Lamar Stevens Signs With Boston Celtics
Former Penn State men’s basketball forward Lamar Stevens officially found a new home with the Boston Celtics, the team announced Tuesday.
Stevens most recently played for the Cleveland Cavaliers for three seasons after he was picked up by the team following the 2020 NBA Draft. The forward was traded to the San Antonio Spurs in July but was released days later.
The details of Stevens’ contract with Boston were not disclosed, according to a release.
Stevens is coming off one of his best seasons in the NBA, averaging 5.3 points and 3.3 rebounds through 62 games played, 25 of which he started.
During his four seasons at Penn State, Stevens averaged 16.3 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. He was named to the All-Big Ten first team twice and was named the NIT’s Most Outstanding Player in the Nittany Lions’ 2018 NIT Championship victory over Utah.
With less than a week before NBA training camps begin, the four-year veteran joins a loaded Celtics roster led by Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. The Celtics currently have the second-best odds to win the 2024 NBA Championship, according to The Athletic.
