  • Tremont Waters: Scores 19 points in G League return

    Waters tallied 19 points (7-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six assists and two rebounds over 30 minutes for Wisconsin in Wednesday's loss to Long Island.

    Waters played in three NBA games between Toronto and Washington in late December and early January, but he entered health and safety protocols Jan. 3 and subsequently saw his 10-day hardship contract expire. The 24-year-old thus returned to the G League, where he logged his first appearance with the Herd since mid-December. Waters led Wisconsin in scoring in the contest and figures to take on a prominent role with the G League squad unless he is summoned back to the NBA.

  • Tremont Waters: Contract lapses

    The Wizards didn't re-sign Waters (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) after his 10-day contract expired Tuesday, Keith Smith of reports.

    Waters made one eight-minute appearance during the first two days of his 10-day deal before entering the protocols Jan. 3. He should receive full clearance to resume basketball activities soon, but since the Wizards have seemingly overcome a recent wave of COVID-19-related absences, the team isn't expected to receive a roster exemption that would allow it to keep Waters around. Expect Waters to head back to the G League's Wisconsin Herd.

    Waters signed with the Wizards on Friday to provide assistance while the team is shorthanded in the backcourt, and he played eight minutes in his lone appearance with the club.

  • Raptors' Tremont Waters: Signs hardship deal with Raptors

    Waters signed a 10-day hardship contract with the Raptors on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    As COVID cases continue to pile up for the Raptors, they'll bring in Waters on a 10-day deal to help compensate for the loss of Fred VanVleet and Malachi Flynn, who both entered protocols Tuesday morning. Waters has been playing with the Wisconsin Herd of the G League this season after failing to secure a second contract from the Celtics, who drafted him in the second round in 2019.

    Waters scored 51 points over the back-to-back weekend set against the Gold, though he made only 14 of 43 shot attempts.

    Waters played 39 minutes in Wisconsin's 131-127 victory versus Grand Rapids on Friday, posting 31 points (8-24 FG, 7-14 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six assists and two steals.

    Waters went just 1-for-10 from two-point range in the win, but he drained half of his 14 attempts from deep en route to his most prolific scoring output of the campaign. The 5-foot-10 guard complemented the sharpshooting performance with six dimes while notching multiple steals for his fourth straight contest. He ranks fourth in the G League with 28 made three-pointers this season and is shooting 44.4 percent from beyond the arc.

    Waters was one of four Wisconsin players with 20-plus points in the win, and he went an efficient 4-of-6 from beyond the arc. The 23-year-old also shined on defense with six thefts. Waters is off to a strong start to the season, having double-doubled in his previous outing.

  • Tremont Waters: Double-doubles in G League win

    Waters totaled 17 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 assists, three rebounds and one steal over 32 minutes in Wisconsin's 126-124 victory over Cleveland on Monday.

  • Bucks' Tremont Waters: Let go by Milwaukee

    Water was waived by the Bucks on Saturday, Paul Garcia of reports.

    Waters played 11.8 minutes per game across five preseason appearances for the Bucks and averaged 4.6 points and 2.0 assists. It's possible he lands in the G League.

  • Bucks' Tremont Waters: Joining Milwaukee for camp

    Waters agreed Tuesday to a training camp contract with the Bucks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The Bucks have both a guaranteed roster spot and a two-way spot open, so Waters has a decent shot at making the team. He's appeared in 37 NBA games (four starts) since being drafted by the Celtics 51st overall in 2019, and he has career averages of 3.8 points and 2.1 assists in 9.6 minutes per game. The 5-foot-10 point guard has upside as a passer and defender, as he's averaged 7.9 assists and 2.5 steals per 36 minutes.

  • Celtics' Tremont Waters: Pours in career-high 17 points

    Waters totaled 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt), five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 25 minutes during Sunday's 96-92 loss to the Knicks.

    With the Celtics resting the majority of their primary roster, Waters came off the bench to score a career-high 17 points. That makes back-to-back games with double-digit points, something he has been unable to do throughout the course of his two seasons in the NBA. As with many of the players that saw action Sunday, Waters will shift back to his usual role Tuesday when the Celtics face the Wizards in the first round of the play-in tournament.

  • Celtics' Tremont Waters: Scores season-high 14 points

    Waters recorded 14 points (4-8 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and seven assists across 22 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win over the Timberwolves.

    Waters saw an uptick in his minutes once again with Kemba Walker (neck) and Marcus Smart (calf) done for the regular season, and the former LSU standout took advantage of his chance to deliver season-high marks in both points and assists. Waters could see hefty minutes in the regular-season finale Sunday against the Knicks, but he shouldn't be a factor come playoff time, especially if Walker and Smart return to the court soon.

  • Celtics' Tremont Waters: Coming off bench

    Waters will come off the bench Saturday against the Timberwolves, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports.

  • Celtics' Tremont Waters: Will start Wednesday

    Waters is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

    With Kemba Walker (rest) and Marcus Smart (calf) sidelined, Waters will make his third start of the season. He wasn't active for the Celtics' previous two games, so it's unclear how much playing time he'll ultimately receive even as a starter.

  • Celtics' Tremont Waters: Starting Wednesday

    Waters will start Wednesday's game against the Hornets, Celtics broadcaster Sean Grande reports.

    The 23-year-old will make his second start of the season with Kemba Walker (side) and Marcus Smart (suspension) unavailable Wednesday. Waters had five points (1-5 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists and two rebounds in 24 minutes during his previous start. Evan Fournier and Payton Pritchard will also see extra run in the backcourt for Boston.

  • Celtics' Tremont Waters: Not part of playoff plan

    Waters is averaging 4.3 minutes, 2.0 points, 1.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.5 rebounds in four games played in the month of April.

    Waters has a long way to go to become fantasy relevant. He currently sits as the Celtics' fifth guard and has only appeared in six of his last 12 games. Even when the second-year guard does get playing time, it's seemingly regulated to garbage-time minutes. It doesn't help that the ex-LSUnTiger is only shooting 31.6 percent on the season either, but the sporadic playing time isn't doing him any favors.
