The Boston Celtics are nearing what their 2021-22 NBA regular season roster will look like after The Athletic’s Jared Weiss reports that the Celtics are waiving guards Theo Pinson, Garrison Mathews, and Chris Clemons.

Per Weiss, Mathews — whose cutting is something of a surprise given the team’s need for shooting and his two way eligibility — will become a free agent, while Pinson and Clemons will join the (Portland) Maine Celtics, Boston’s developmental affiliate in the G League, as affiliate players. Luke Kornet, Ryan Arcidiacono, and Juwan Morgan will join them in that role with the Maine Celtics according to The Athletic NBA insider.

Jabari Parker and Bruno Fernando will reportedly remain with the team for the time being.

Quade Green, Jaysean Paige, Wayne Blackshear, Deng Adel, and John Bohannon will also join the above players in Portland as G League players for Maine.

Any of the players heading to the Maine Celtics could in theory be called up to play for Boston by being converted to a two way player, but there is no guarantee that’s the plan for the Celtics’ remaining two way spot.

With names like Harry Giles — a former teammate and friend of Jayson Tatum — Tyrell Terry and other intriguing, two way eligible players becoming available, Boston may be putting out feelers about who might have interest in joining the team via that route.

It’s also possible the team keeps it open for some time, just to be ready to pounce for a quality option squeezed out elsewhere.
