The Boston Celtics have come to terms on one of their picks from the 2019 NBA Draft.
Tremont Waters has agreed to a two-way contract with the C's, first reported by The Boston Globe's Gary Washburn on Tuesday.
Waters was the 51st overall pick (second round) in June's draft. He averaged 15.3 points and 5.9 assists in 29 games for the Louisiana State Tigers last season. The 21-year-old guard has been playing for the Celtics' Summer League team in Las Vegas this month, and he's averaged 10 points and 3.5 assists over the first two games (both wins). Boston's next game is Tuesday night against the Denver Nuggets.
In addition to his playmaking ability, Waters' defense is quite impressive. He even won the SEC Defensive Player of the Year award last season.
Waters isn't likely to see much playing time for Boston next season, but he's a good option to have in the fold in case of injury.
