Isaiah Thomas won't be the last undersized point guard to wear No. 4 in Celtic green. 

According to one report, second-round point guard and Summer League standout Carsen Edwards will wear Thomas's former number this year for the Boston Celtics. 

When Edwards was introduced in Boston, the 6-1 sparkplug instantly drew Thomas comparisons and noted the now-Wizards point guard as a source of motivation. 

“People who give me inspiration and hope are the shorter guys who make it,″ Edwards said. 

During Summer League, Edwards averaged 19.4 points per game, but was snubbed from the All-Summer League teams

Edwards agreed with Boston on a four-year guaranteed contract, which means he'll likely play an important role off the bench sooner rather than later. Fellow draft picks, first rounders Grant Williams and Romeo Langford, have also signed deals with the Celtics while second-round pick Tremont Waters will play on a two-way deal for the 2019-2020 season.
