Celtics Make Wanamaker Signing Official
Reports surfaced about a week ago, claiming the Boston Celtics had went abroad to Euroleague guard and former Pitt Panther Brad Wanamaker to the states.
Tuesday morning, the C's made the speculation a reality, as they officially announced their signing of the 28-year-old.
Wanamaker played four years at the University of Pittsburgh, before heading to Europe to start his professional career.
The guard spent seven seasons overseas, most recently playing for the Euroleague's Fenerbahce Ulker. He averaged 11.5 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists, during the 2017-2018 campaign.
Wanamaker is expected to fill a reserve role with the C's, helping to provide depth behind the team's starting backcourt duo of Kyrie Irving and Jaylen Brown.
The adjustment to the NBA should be aided by Wanamaker's connection with second-year Celtic Daniel Theis, who was his teammate in Europe for two seasons.
