NBA Scouts Love Tremont Waters, Want Their Teams To Trade For Celtics Rookie


December 23, 2019

Did the Celtics strike gold near the end of the 2019 NBA Draft?

Boston chose guard Tremont Waters with the 51st overall pick in the draft, a selection many wrote off as nothing more than a second-round flier. And although Waters has spent a majority of his rookie season playing in the NBA G League, the LSU product apparently is generating significant interest among NBA scouts and front offices.

Check out these tweets from Yahoo! Sports’ Keith Smith:

Waters was awfully impressive in his lone game this season, confidently racking up seven points, two rebounds and three assists in a late-November win over the Sacramento Kings. The 21-year-old has been an absolute force in the G League, however, averaging 20.1 points, 7.5 assists and 3.2 rebounds for the Maine Red Claws.

Whether Waters makes a real impact for the Celtics this season remains to be seen. Perhaps he can be a piece in a trade to acquire the frontcourt depth that Boston desperately needs. Regardless, Waters is someone whom Celtics fans probably should start getting excited about.
