The rest of the roster is made up of nine returning players, with mainstays like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, as well as new additions Al Horford, Josh Richardson, Dennis Schroder, Juancho Hernangomez and Enes Kanter. Rookie Sam Hauser also made the cut. Notably, Luke Kornet is not named on the roster, despite previous reports saying he was set to participate in training camp. Forbes’ Chris Grenham reported that the Celtics may keep Kornet on an Exhibit 10 deal, however.
He is not eligible for a two-way contract. Kornet was acquired at last year’s deadline in a deal that sent Daniel Theis and Javonte Green to the Chicago Bulls.
Hearing that Luke Kornet still has an Exhibit 10 deal set up with the Celtics, however he may not be on the initial 20-man camp roster.
Kornet is not eligible for a two-way contract, so the goal is to get him in at some point to get his rights as an affiliate player.

All of the Celtics additions have NBA experience. Arcidiacono has the most of the bunch, spending four years coming off the bench for Chicago.
The Celtics kick off preseason on Oct. 4 against the Orlando Magic home at TD Garden.
