2019 NBA Draft: Celtics Select Tremont Waters With No. 51 Overall Pick

by

BOSTON — With the 51st overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics selected LSU point guard Tremont Waters.

Waters is a sharp-shooting point guard who has great court vision. His size may be an issue on the defensive end as he comes in at 5-foot-10, but the Connecticut native is known for his work ethic. He’ll join Purdue’s Carsen Edwards to fill out the Celtics’ new backcourt depth.

Waters could be a candidate for a two-way deal. The 21-year-old worked out for the Celtics twice during the pre-draft process.
