Celtics sign guard Walt Lemon, Jr. to two-way contract

The Celtics continue to build their roster for the upcoming season, and they have just signed Walt Lemon, Jr. to a two-way contract which will allow him to split time between the Celtics and the Maine Red Claws.

The anticipated release of Kadeem Allen from his two-way contract apparently opened the door to signing Lemon. Walt is a 26-year-old (this month), 6'3", 180-lb guard who graduated from Bradley.

He went undrafted in 2014 and has played for the Pelicans and various Summer League and European teams since that time.

We know very little about Lemon, but one fact is obvious. Announcers and sports writers will have a field day with his last name, particularly if he doesn't produce. Or even if he proves to have real value - "The Celts need Lemon-Aid to get back in this game!" See what I mean.
