Purvis was waived by the Celtics on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Purvis has been on three different rosters over the last few weeks following a flurry of trades, but as expected, has now been released in order to open up a roster spot in Boston. He'll look to latch on with another organization for training camp in September, though there's no guarantee he ends up making a final roster. Purvis played in 16 games with Orlando as a rookie last season, averaging 6.0 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 18.1 minutes.
Purvis has been traded to the Celtics in exchange for Abdel Nader, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.
Just days after being traded to Oklahoma City, Pruvis is once again on the move to Boston. Purvis played just 16 games last season, averaging 6.0 points over 18.1 minutes.
The Thunder will send Dakari Johnson to Orlando in a move that looks to be a low-level salary dump. Johnson's contract for next season is guaranteed at $1.4 million, while Purvis is on a non-guaranteed deal, which the Thunder will likely look to shed.
Purvis finished with 20 points (6-16 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three rebounds and three assists across 26 minutes during Friday's 87-85 summer league loss to the Thunder.
Purvis got hot from beyond the arc, hitting four triples en route to dropping a team-high 20 points. He had struggled in summer league prior to Friday's effort, totaling just five points, nine rebounds, three steals and two assists across 53.1 minutes -- unexpected considering he saw nearly 300 minutes in the NBA last season.
Purvis scored 16 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go with five rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 101-92 win against Washington.
Getting a chance to play during the last month of the season, Purvis averaged 6.0 points in 18.1 minutes per game. The rookie guard shot a career-high tying 13 times in the regular season finale en route to his bench-leading scoring performance. While averaging 6.7 shots per game, Purvis only shot 32.7 percent from the field.
