Boston Celtics two-way player Tremont Waters has been named the 2019-2020 NBA G League Rookie of the Year.
Waters played for the Maine Red Claws, the Celtics’ G League affiliate.
In 36 games, he averaged 18.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game.
Waters had 10 games with at least 20 points and seven assists, including a season-high 33-point, seven-assist performance in a 155-131 road win over the Greensboro Swarm.
The 22-year-old led the Red Claws to a 28-14 record, good enough for third place in the Eastern Conference.
The former LSU Tiger was selected No. 51 in the 2019 NBA Draft and appeared in 10 games with the Celtics this season.
