REPORT: Nik Stauskas to Sign Two-Year Deal With Boston Celtics

Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics for an undisclosed amount of money, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The former eighth overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft had an explosive week in the G League, scoring 57 and 43 points in back-to-back games for the Grand Rapids Gold, the Denver Nuggets’ G League affiliate team. Before inking on the dotted lines to move up to the NBA, he was ninth in the entire G League in scoring, averaging 26.0 points per contest.

The surging Celtics (38-27) get solid depth at the shooting guard position, as the former Michigan Wolverine will look to re-establish himself in the NBA and earn solid minutes.
