Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics are finalizing a deal to add free agent guard Marcus Georges-Hunt to their training camp roster, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 6-foot-5 Georges-Hunt spent the 2017-18 season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, where he suited for 42 games, averaging 5:20 per night and shooting 43.8 percent from the field.

An undrafted talent, the 24-year-old Georges-Hunt also played in one game for the Iowa Wolves of the G League last season, where he scored 34 points behind a 10-of-16 shooting night from the field.

Prior to his 42-game season in Minny, Georges-Hunt appeared in five games for the Orlando Magic in 2016-17, where he averaged 2.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 9:30 of action per night.

As mentioned by Woj, the Celtics have some sort of familiarity with Georges-Hunt, as he played for the Maine Red Claws (the G League affiliate of the Celtics) two seasons ago.

Georges-Hunt addition to C’s camp, per Wojnarowski, comes due to the uncertainty surrounding the Celtics’ Jabari Bird following his domestic violence arrest earlier this month. While the Celtics are completely staying away from the matter, instead opting to let the NBA handle it with their own investigation, the unknown timeline of a Bird resolution could directly impact Georges-Hunt.

The Celtics opened up their preseason Friday night against the Charlotte Hornets.
