Brad Stevens and the Boston Celtics have decided to use their last open roster spot on former lottery pick Nik Stauskas.
Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids.
The 28 year old sharp shooter's NBA career fizzled out a few years ago and since then has only played 2 games in the league during a cup of coffee stint with the Miami Heat this season. Stauskas has most recently been shooting the lights out in the G-League.
Prior to Miami, Stauskas was drafted and played for the Sacramento Kings, Philadelphia 76ers, Brooklyn Nets, Portland Trail Blazers, and Cleveland Cavaliers. No word yet on whether Stauskas or the Celtics have a player or team option on the second year of the contract.
