Stevens played in 62 games (25 starts) for the Cavs last season. Considered a strong defensive presence, the 26-year-old averaged 5.3 points and 3.3 rebounds while shooting 44.8 percent from the floor.
Barring any further moves, the Celtics’ signing of Stevens rounds out their roster ahead of training camp with 15 standard contracts and three two-way deals.
The Celtics will report to camp in less than two weeks. They will open their preseason Oct. 8 against the Philadelphia 76ers.
