The Boston Celtics plan to sign free-agent guard Nik Stauskas to a two-year deal, per a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Stauskas, 28, made headlines over the past week after posting 57 points and 43 points in consecutive games.
It was only a matter of time before Stauskas – who was selected eighth overall in the 2014 NBA Draft – was signed to an NBA deal.
The Celtics opened up more than a few roster spots after the NBA Trade Deadline and have been filling most of them with 10-day contract players.
Stauskas’s contract is non-guaranteed for next year, ensuring the the Celtics will have cap flexibility, per NBA reporter Keith Smith.
In 337 NBA games, Stauskas has averaged 6.8 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.5 assists on 39%/35%/81% shooting splits.
