After executing some roster moves over the past several days, the Boston Celtics made a relatively minor one Monday by re-signing point guard Tremont Waters to a two-way contract.

The 22-year-old Waters, who was selected by the Celtics as the No. 51 overall pick in the 2019 draft out of LSU, split his time between the Celtics and their G-League affiliate the Maine Red Claws during his rookie season.

Waters did make an impression with both clubs, despite limited action with the Celtics, where he played in 11 games, starting one, while averaging 3.6 points, 1.5 assists and 0.9 assists per game. Waters flashed his potential as a productive point guard that could score and distribute during his time with the Red Claws as he was named the G-League’s Rookie of the Year.

Waters role for the upcoming 2020-21 season looks similar as a far down the bench depth piece for the Celtics, who will have Kemba Walker, Marcus Smart and Jeff Teague playing in front of Waters.

Waters wasn’t the only two-way contract the Celtics handed out Monday as Boston also came to terms with fan favorite Tacko Fall.
