Hunter recorded 17 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two steals, one rebound and one assist across 12 minutes in Saturday's 119-107 preseason win over the Knicks.

Hunter entered training camp with his roster spot not guaranteed for the coming season, but he likely solidified his standing with the team with Saturday's performance. The Celtics will need to see consistent production from Hunter as a three-point shooter in order to justify giving him more run in 2016-17, but he'll likely open up the campaign outside of coach Brad Stevens' rotation.
