Lester Hudson signed a one-year deal with the team, according to the Herald. But it’s unclear whether the deal is guaranteed, since Mike Sweetney also signed a non-guaranteed deal and will be the 16th player at training camp, according to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.
The Herald makes it sound like Hudson got a guaranteed deal, but that doesn’t make total sense of the Celtics are inviting other players to training camp.
Quoth the Herald:
Rookie Lester Hudson, who has worked out patiently all summer without a contract, walked onto the floor with a new one-year deal in hand.
“I was very anxious about it,” he said. “But it’s a great feeling. I got to work out with all of the guys on this team.”
Hudson appears to be the last guard – and the 15th man – on the roster.
Still—no reports about any other guards landing camp invites. Just Sweetney, who has no shot to make a team already crowded with front court players. I wonder why the invite, then?
We’ll update on Hudson once the facts become clearer.
