Celtics Assistant Walter McCarty Faces Larceny Charge, Issues Statement

Boston Celtics assistant coach Walter McCarty issued a statement Thursday regarding his appearance in Framingham District Court, reportedly on a larceny charge.

McCarty pleaded not guilty to larceny by check, according to CBS Boston.

“This matter stems from ordering some kitchen cabinets for a home that my family and I are building,” McCarty said in the statement. “We hope to resolve the matter soon, but I simply cannot comment further while the case is pending.”

McCarty, 40, is set to begin his second season as an assistant under head coach Brad Stevens.
