Waters was named to the All-NBA G League Second Team and was one of five players named to the NBA G League All-Rookie Team. The rookie team nod came as no surprise since last week Waters was named the G League Rookie of the Year. In 36 games with Crustacean Nation, the electric guard delivered 18.0 points, 7.3 dimes, 3.2 boards and 1.9 steals per G League contest. He also drilled a few last second game-winners. Waters and fellow rookie Carsen Edwards will fight for reserve point guard minutes with Boston when the Celtics resume play in late July.
Waters has been named the G League Rookie of the Year, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports. Waters was Boston's second round pick from 2019 and was on a two-way contract. With the Red Claws, he averaged 18.0 points on 14.8 shots, 7.3 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 33.8 minutes per game.
Waters produced 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt), eight rebounds and seven assists over 33 minutes in Thursday's 119-100 home win over the Skyhawks. Waters was part of a well-rounded Red Claws effort that saw the team come back from a first-half deficit to dominate in the second half. Waters was a big part of Crustacean Nation shooting 49 percent from the field. He was also one of six Claws to score in double figures. Maine now travels north of the border for Saturday's match-up with Raptors 905. Expect the G League All-Star to continue leading the Claws from the point guard spot.
Waters has been named to the Eastern Conference Midseason All-NBA G League Team. In other words, he's been named a G League All-Star. Waters has earned Player of the Month for November honors and has twice been named G League Player of the Week. Through 26 games, he's averaging 19.5 points, 7.8 assists, 2.4 steals and 2.6 made three-pointers per contest. He's in the top five in the G League for both assists and steals. The Claws have two more games before the G League All-Star break.
Waters was recalled by the Celtics ahead of Monday's game against Atlanta, Steven Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports. Waters could see some rotational minutes, as Kemba Walker (knee) is out and Marcus Smart (thigh) is doubtful for Monday's game. While he's played well for the Celtics' G League affiliate, Waters has been unable to find a consistent role at the NBA level this year, averaging just 9.3 minutes average across six contests.
