The Boston Celtics, the National Basketball Association, the city of Boston, and New Balance are teaming up to honor the late Terrence Clarke, who died at the age of 19 in a car accident, per John Karalis.
The Vine St. Community Center is located on Dudley Street in Boston’s historically black neighborhood of Roxbury.
Clarke played middle school/high school hoops in Massachusetts before transferring to Brewster Academy in New Hampshire.
The NBA community – especially those of the Celtics’ organization – mourned Clarke’s tragic passing before the 2021 NBA Draft.
Commissioner Adam Silver selected Clarke to the NBA as a ceremonial pick.
