All the other draft picks got some glory with their own thread, so why not Tremont as well?

Another interesting pick that could make the team as a spark plug off the bench.

he is 21 years old and stands 5'10.75" (6'2.25" wingspan), so 1 1/2 inches shorter than Edwards. FT% = 81.2% and averaged 5.8 assists a game for LSU. He also averaged 2.9 steals.

On the downside, he averaged 3.5 TO a game and only shot three-pointers at 32.7%. But, with that FT% he might improve, maybe.

But in any and all cases, he is a Celtic...for now.  ;D Below is some video of my newest and shortest Celtic.

I like Waters highlights, but I just wish he was 3 inches taller.  But if he was 3" taller he probably goes end of 1st round.
probably too small to make the impact he did in college.  looks like a good ball handler, passer, smart player.

Reportedly the Celtics were looking for a player that would agree to a two-way contract at the pick (which makes sense).  Not every player would want to agree to that prior to the draft, so that presumably limited their pool of guys to pick.

On top of that, his defense is NBA-ready, so if you have to play him due to multiple injuries and illnesses at the position, he can at least give you something playable at one end of the court.

I dont expect hell have a long and storied career, but you never know.  Right now hes someone to develop for a year in Maine, have available in case of emergency, and then see what youve got.  In a perfect world hes a smaller version of the PG that Avery Bradley never became.

Ainge apparently agrees, as he just signed Tacko.  So now you can try again welcoming Waters!

Was my call for this pick and needs strength and work on his shot. Good two way player who just needs to play against better competition

Yeah, his defence seems to be quite excellent. For someone who really wanted Jevon Carter last year this is a bit of a consolation. If we get anything out of him it's a win
