Celtics To Release Kadeem Allen From Two-Way Contract

Lemon, who played collegiately at Bradley, replaces two-way player Kadeem Allen, a 2017 second-round draft pick who was waived by the Celtics on Sunday.

The Celtics have agreed to a two-way contract with guard Walt Lemon Jr., a league source confirmed on Monday.

Lemon posted 22.4 points, 6.1 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.0 steals per game through his stint in the G League, quickly becoming one of the best scoring guards of the league. He only shot 30.9% from three, though, preferring to attack more off the drive. He played in five games with the Pelicans last season with minimal production in limited time.

Here's a little bit of what he looks like. This month, the University of California Berkeley alum enjoyed success at the Las Vegas Summer League, where he had the opportunity to showcase his talents.

Bird, who is reportedly drawing interest around the league, is a restricted free-agent, meaning the Celtics can match any contract offer given to him.
