Four Free Agents Hoping To Receive Invitation To Celtics Training Camp

Adam Morrison is but one of the free-agent perimeterr players hoping to land an invitation to the Celtics’ training camp. Julian Benbow of the Boston Globe reports Trenton Hassell, Rashad McCants, and Cuttino Mobley joined Morrison for workouts at the Celtics’ practice facility earlier this week. Though Boston already has 15 players under contract, Celtics GM Danny Ainge told Benbow he would like to bring more than 15 to training camp.

Hassell and McCants are former teammates of Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett from his days in Minnesota. Hassell, a defensive specialist, made 52 appearances for the Nets last season, while the high-scoring McCants last played in the NBA for the Kings in the 2008/09 season.

Mobley’s presence at camp is the most jarring: he retired two years ago after a routine physical revealed he has a life-threatening heart condition. But apparently the former Rockets, Magic, Kings, and Clippers guard is not ready to give up the game just yet.
