Boston fills its open roster spot temporarily by adding sharpshooting forward Eddie

NBA: Atlanta Hawks at Washington Wizards Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Shams Chrania reported Friday that the Boston Celtics signed Windy City Bulls forward Jarell Eddie to a 10-day contract.

Eddie was a member of the Chicago Bulls G-League affiliate, and has played sparingly for the Wizards and Suns the last two seasons after going undrafted in 2014. Eddie is known as a three-point specialist, attempting three times as many three pointers as two’s in his time in the NBA.

Eddie was averaging 17.2 points and just over four rebounds before getting picked up by Boston.

The 6’7” swingman will join a Celtics team that has left an open roster spot vacant all year. With the trade deadline approaching, Boston seems to be willing to try out a G-League player to see if he can earn a spot and add some floor spacing to Brad Stevens’ offense.
