Celtics Agree to Multi-Year Deal with Phil Pressey

 

Phil Pressey turned a lot of heads in Orlando, demonstrating a bevy of point guard skills at the helm of the Celtics Summer League team. Now, he’s been rewarded for those efforts. According to Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe, Pressey and the Celtics have come to terms on a multi-year deal for the undrafted rookie out of Missouri.

Point guard Phil Pressey was impressive for the Celtics in their stretch of games at the Orlando Summer Pro League and that production has garnered him a multiyear contract, according to a league source. The source said the contract includes guarantees.

Pressey, a 5-foot, 11-inch guard who went undrafted out of the University of Missouri, signed with the Celtics following the draft and flourished in Orlando, averaging 9.4 points and 6.6 assists in 23 minutes per game. The Celtics have been seeking a true reserve point guard for years and appear to have decided on Pressey, who played at Waltham High while his father Paul was an assistant with the Celtics.

The Celtics indicated during the summer session that Pressey would be invited to camp and the two sides have been working on a deal the past two weeks. Celtics coach Brad Stevens expressed his admiration for Pressey last week in Orlando.

What does this mean for the Celtics’ roster and what skills can Pressey bring to the table?

The next shoe to drop in this process now will likely come in the bigs department. Pressey, while signed, is probably not guaranteed a full salary this year, he just got some extra money upfront, much like Dionte Christmas did last season, for choosing the C’s this year. He’ll still have to make the team out of training camp.

The next shoe to drop belongs to Shavlik Randolph, who is guaranteed his contract for next season if he is not waived before August 1st. Ainge likes Randolph, who is still young and was very productive on the glass last season. He’s also cheap, so if Danny can do some rearranging on the ship deck over the rest of the summer, my guess is Shav stays. We’ll be waiting to see who goes though.

    straight up for LeBron, right? Danny is an idiot for not doing that.

  • Phil

    Randolph isn't exactly young, he turns 30 in November. He may be cheap, but the Cs likely want to evade the luxury tax, and they're right on the cutoff before factoring Pressey's deal. The vet min is still a million dollars that could be axed with no strings attached. The Cs probably need to shed about 2m over the next six months or so, and Randolph's unguaranteed contract is the logical starting point. I'd say he's a longshot to make it to August. Good rebounder or not, you don't get a much better definition of 'replacement level'.

    I'm not surprised by the Pressey news given the position of need. He'll be given a chance to stick, and hopefully he takes advantage of it. He seems like a hard worker, and he should have an idea of what he needs to improve to make the team. I'm still worried about his shot since I think the team is going to push him to improve his point guard skills first, but it's not like you can ask the world from a UFA.
