Would still love to find out what Danny saw in JR Giddens #Celtics— Joe Giza (@JoeGiza) June 29, 2012
Giddens, who was drafted 30th by the Celtics in the 2008 NBA Draft, did not get off to an auspicious start almost from the rip, missing training camp after not being able to work out a contract with the team beforehand. He would spend much of his years in Boston shuttling back and forth between the Celts and their NBA D-League affiliate at the time, the Utah Flash, playing a total of 27 games with the club over two seasons.
He would be traded along with Bill Walker and Eddie House were traded to the New York Knicks for Nate Robinson and Marcus Landry, where he would play only eleven games before leaving the league for good. He's since played at several overseas teams in Europe, and played a short stint with the New Mexico Thunderbirds, an NBA D-League squad, in 2011.
@BillSimmons That's right, JR Giddens better than Lebron. He'll always have that. Cheer up sir, Celtics win game 6 pic.twitter.com/IeYrMIkeeB— Cameron Dzur (@beardedCameron) April 27, 2016
