The Celtics on Monday signed forward Coty Clarke to a 10-day contract. Clarke was on the Celtics’ summer league team before being added to the training camp roster. He appeared in one game during the preseason.

This season the 6-foot-7 Clarke has been a standout for the D-League’s Maine Red Claws, averaging 16.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. The Celtics had one open roster spot after reaching a buyout agreement with forward David Lee last month. Lee has shined since signing with the Mavericks, averaging 11.3 points and 9 rebounds over six games.

The Celtics face the Grizzlies at TD Garden on Wednesday night.
