Tremont Waters merits a standard NBA contract as soon as NOW

The word is out! Celtics rookie, Tremont Waters is no longer a secret playing for the G League Maine red Claws. Taken with the 51st pick in the second round of the 2019 NBA draft, Waters is drawing a lot of attention from rival General Managers.


The 5'10" point guard is averaging 32.5 MPG, 20.2 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 7.5 APG and 2.3 SPG for the Red Claws. He was chosen G League Player of the Month for November, 2019. He is quick. He is clever. He can score in so many ways, and his passing skills are NBA-level right now.


Tremont is currently on a two-way contract for the Celtics, splitting time between the Maine Red Claws and the Celtics. Danny Ainge was right on target taking Waters late in the second round - and then locking him up with a two-way deal.


Boston owns Waters' rights, but the calls may start - if they haven't already - asking about Tremont's availability. The Celtics signing him to a standard contract this season would mean waiving a current player from the roster. Things may get interesting prior to the February trade deadline.
