Georges-Hunt was waived by the Celtics on Saturday, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
Hunt appeared in 42 games for the Timberwolves last season, playing 224 minutes. He was ultimately a longshot to make the deep Celtics roster, but could end up in the G-League with the Maine Red Claws.
Georges-Hunt appeared in 42 games with the Timberwolves last season, seeing just 5.3 minutes per game. He's seen most of his run in the G-League. During 2016-17, garnered 36.4 minutes per game for the Maine Red Claws, averaging 15.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.0 steal.
Georges-Hunt wasn't extended a qualifying offer and is set to become an unrestricted free agent, Michael Scotto of The Athletic reports.
Georges-Hunt played in a career-high 42 games with Minnesota this past season, but averaged just 5.3 minutes and was only a minor contributor. The Timberwolves added fellow wings Josh Okogie and Kieta Bates-Diop in last week's draft and will likely be looking to add some additional help once free agency opens July 1, so Georges-Hunt becomes expendable. He'll be free to sign anywhere he pleases, though he's not promised a guaranteed deal and could have to perform well during training camp to make a final roster elsewhere.
Marcus Georges-Hunt finished with 11 points (3-5 FG, 5-5 FT), two rebounds and two steals in 14 minutes during Saturday's 120-108 loss to Philadelphia.
Georges-Hunt has basically been out of the rotation for some time now but was able to see some garbage time minutes in this one. He has shown small glimpses of what he can do this season but given the rotations of the Wolves players, he is unlikely to do this again anytime soon. He still belongs on the waivers in all formats.
Georges-Hunt will sit out Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers with an illnes, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.
Considering it's just an illness, this likely won't keep Georges-Hunt out for long and he could be back in the lineup as soon as Friday's matchup with the Bulls. Either way, Georges-Hunt is outside the Timberwolves' regular rotation, so his absence shouldn't have much of an impact for fantasy purposes.
