The Celtics made their final addition of the 2014 offseason official on Monday, by announcing they have signed free agent swingman Evan Turner to a new contract.

Turner agreed to terms with the Celtics back in July, but the team delayed signing the 2010 no. 2 overall pick until now in order to allow them to do some additional roster maneuvering.

The team’s training camp roster is now set with Turner’s addition as the Celtics have 20 players now signed under contract. Brad Stevens will have to trim that number down to 15 players by opening night on October 30th.

Here is the full training camp roster:

Centers: Tyler Zeller, Vitor Faverani, Joel Anthony
Forwards: Jared Sullinger, Kelly Olynyk, Jeff Green, Gerald Wallace, Evan Turner, James Young, Dwight Powell, Erik Murphy, Brandon Bass, Christian Watford
Guards: Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, Marcus Smart, Marcus Thornton, Tim Frazier, Phil Pressey, Rodney McGruder.
