Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics have signed guard Walt Lemon Jr. to a two-way contract, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

The move comes a day after the Celtics officially waived guard and 2017 second-round draft pick Kadeem Allen, and on the heels of the Celtics’ elimination from the Summer League playoffs following Sunday’s 95-80 loss to the Blazers.

What’s to know about Lemon Jr.?

A 6-foot-3 guard, Lemon Jr. appeared in five games for the New Orleans Pelicans last season. On two 10-day contracts with the Pelicans, the 25-year-old averaged 3.4 points and shot 43.8 from the field in seven minutes per night.

In between Pelican stints, Lemon Jr. spent his 2017-28 season with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA G League, where he averaged 22.4 points and 6.1 assists per night in a 40-game campaign.

Ainge, who had Lemon Jr. in for a workout during the club’s pre-draft mini camp sessions this past June, confirmed the signing to the Boston Herald’s Mark Murphy on Monday.

Boston’s quiet offseason will likely conclude with decisions on Jabari Bird and restricted free agent Marcus Smart.
