With the NBA G-League season officially over, 2019-20 season awards are being handed out and the Boston Celtics/Maine Red Claws are well represented. Both of Boston’s Two-Way players, Tremont Waters and Tacko Fall, have picked up honors.
After being named NBA G-League Rookie of the Year, Waters added two more recognitions. Waters was named to the All G-League second team and was also names to the G-League All-Rookie team.
In 36 games (all starts) with the Red Claws, Waters averaged 18 points and 7.3 assists per game. He also nabbed 1.9 steals per game.
Waters was signed to a Two-Way contract after being drafted by Boston with the 21st pick in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft. He was an early entry candidate after playing two seasons at Louisiana State University.
Also picking up an acknowledgement was Tacko Fall, Boston’s second Two-Way player. Fall was named to the G-League All-Defensive team.
In 29 games (11 starts) with Maine, Fall averaged 11.3 rebounds and 3.1 blocks per game. Fall also scored 12.9 points per game on 70.1% shooting.
Fall went undrafted out of the University of Central Florida at the 2019 NBA Draft. After impressing the Celtics at NBA Summer League, Fall was eventually converted from an Exhibit 10 contract to a Two-Way contract.
Both Waters and Fall are eligible to be restricted free agents this summer. In order to make them restricted free agents, Boston would have to tender each player a qualifying offer for another Two-Way contract. This would allow the Celtics right of first refusal to match any offer sheet either player could sign with another NBA team.
