Walter Lemon has been a bright spot in Celtics pre-season games
Some of our readers have made positive comments on Walt Lemon's performance in pre-season, and I have also have noticed his determined play and production. His pre-season, three-game average, per-36-minute line projects to 21.1 PPG, 6.8 RPG. 4.0 APG, 1.2 SPG and 1.2 BPG.
In 2018 NBA Summer League, he played for the Pelicans and averaged 13.6 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 6.4 APG, 1.6 SPG and 0.6 BPG. You can watch him in Summer League action in the video below.
The 26-year old, 6'3" Lemon is currently signed to a two-way contract with the Boston Celtics, so he will be splitting his time between Boston and their G-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws. If he can maintain his current level of play, he has an outside chance to eventually land a spot on the full-time Celtics roster. He has been one of the bright spots for Boston thus far in pre-season.
