Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday that the Celtics and former Georgetown forward LJ Peak agreed to a partially guaranteed contract. Wojnarowski also included in the report that Peak is expected to spend most of his time with the Maine Red Claws in the NBA G-League.

Peak spent three years at Georgetown before going undrafted in 2017. In his junior season, Peak averaged 16.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.5 assists while shooting just under 33% from three.

With the addition of Peak, the Celtics roster is now at 19 players under contract with 14 guaranteed deals following the Thomas-Irving blockbuster. It is important to note that the Celtics reportedly brought in Thomas Robinson for a workout, and had preliminary contact with Andrew Bogut in order to fill out the active roster.

Cleveland has attempted to get Boston to give more compensation after Thomas’ physical with the Cavs’ medical staff, but Boston has held strong in not giving up anything more in the trade. This stalemate has the NBA world waiting on it’s resolution, and it seems Danny Ainge and the Celtics’ front office are confident that the trade will not be voided.
