Gibson will sign with the Qingdao Eagles of the Chinese Basketball Association, Sportando reports. Gibson spent the 2017-18 campaign with Qingdao as well, so he's plenty familiar with the organization. In 38 games, Gibson averaged a ridiculous 33.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.5 steals across 38.6 minutes. Following the completion of the CBA schedule, the point guard did join the Celtics for the back end of last season and saw action in four games. However, he didn't do enough to earn additional looks from Boston, or any other NBA teams, to make a roster ahead of the 2018-19 season, so he's set to head back overseas for another run at a scoring title in China.
Gibson scored 18 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt) to go along with two rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes during Wednesday's 110-97 win over the Nets. Gibson saw additional run with Terry Rozier out resting, finishing second on the team in scoring thanks to an efficient night at the offensive end. Rozier is expected to shoulder a large burden during the playoffs, restoring Shane Larkin to the backup spot and relegating Gibson to mere scrap minutes here and there.
Gibson has signed a contract with the Celtics for the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. This news comes in the wake of Kyrie Irving (knee) undergoing surgery and being sidelined for the remainder of the regular and postseason. Gibson most recently played in China, posting 33.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.5 steals in 38.6 minutes per game. He also made 3.9 threes per game at a 37.4 percent mark. When both Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin (illness) are healthy, it seems doubtful Gibson will see significant run, however.
Gibson will be waived by the Mavericks on Tuesday, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports. The Mavericks have yet to officially announce the roster move, but the team reportedly plans to sign D-League standout Pierre Jackson and bid adieu to Gibson, who has fallen out of coach Rick Carlisle's rotation the last couple weeks with Deron Williams and Seth Curry back to full health. Gibson was averaging a respectable 6.2 points in just 13.6 minutes per game over his 17 appearances, but was incredibly inefficient, shooting just 36.8 percent from the floor. Dallas will give Jackson a look to see if he can provide a better spark off the bench as the team's third or fourth point guard, but don't expect him to pick up major minutes.
Gibson scored 11 points (5-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and added five assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 27 minutes during Thursday's 97-87 loss to the Hornets. After a hot breakout in his first few games, Gibson had faded almost completely out of the rotation. In the two games before Thursday, he totaled only seven minutes. With Seth Curry (knee) out Thursday, Gibson once again saw big minutes, with modest results. In every game where Gibson plays double-digit minutes, he has made it to the free throw line at least twice - though he missed both attempts Thursday, he entered the game averaging 79.2 percent on the season. In each of those games, he has also added at least seven points, and at least two assists.
