Celtics have come to terms on a one-year deal with free agent point guard Jeff Teague, per Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe.
Just moments after former back-up guard Brad Wanamaker had agreed to a contract with the Golden State Warriors, it was reported that the Celtics came to an agreement to sign a veteran in Teague.
Teague, 32, has averaged 12.6 points (35.6 percent from 3) and 5.8 assists during his 11-year career. Last season he began with the Minnesota Timberwolves before bing traded to the Atlanta Hawks, scoring 10.9 points and dishing out 5.2 assists in 24.8 minutes off the bench.
With the addition of Teague, the Celtics selecting Payton Pritchard in the NBA Draft and Tremont Waters getting a qualifying offer this week, the depth chart behind starter Kemba Walker just got interesting. Plus, with Gordon Hayward heading to Charlotte, Marcus Smart and Carsen Edwards also remain in the mix for minutes at the guard position.
