According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Marcus Georges-Hunt is finalizing a deal to join the Boston Celtics in preseason camp. The free agent guard worked out with Boston earlier this month.

Georges-Hunt appeared in 42 games last season for the Minnesota Timberwolves, averaging 1.4 points per game, while 43.8% from the field. Georges-Hunt has been productive during his time in the G-League, posting a line of 16.2 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game in 46 total contests. The Georgia Tech product averaged 15.8 points for the Red Claws during the 2016-17 season.

The Jabari Bird situation remains ongoing, however if a roster spot were to open, Georges-Hunt could make Boston’s regular season roster. As Wojnarowski noted, there is no timetable for Bird’s situation.

The Celtics open their preseason slate tonight at 7:30 PM EST as they face the Charlotte Hornets at the historic Dean Dome in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
