Tremont Waters hasn’t spent much of the season with Boston Celtics, but the rookie guard has made the most of his opportunity with the Maine Red Claws in the G League.
On Monday, Waters, who was selected at No. 51 overall by the Celtics in last June’s draft and is on a two-way contract, was named to the Eastern Conference Midseason All-NBA G League Team, which is comparable to that of an All-Star selection.
