Share

BOSTON – The Boston Celtics will have at least one new face with a two-way contract this upcoming season after signing Walter Lemon Jr.

The 25-year-old guard will spend this season back and forth between the Celtics and the Maine Red Claws of the Gatorade League, with Lemon spending no more than 45 days with the Celtics.

A four-year player out of Bradley, he went undrafted in the 2014 NBA draft. 

Since then he has played both internationally as well as in the G-League. 

It was with the Ft. Wayne Mad Ants that he got a G-League call-up last season, signing a pair of 10-day contracts with the New Orleans Pelicans. He appeared in five games, averaging 3.4 points in just 7.0 minutes per game. 

The bulk of his time last season was spent with the Mad Ants, where he averaged 22.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 2.03 steals per game while averaging 36.6 minutes played.
