The Boston Celtics will sign guard Xavier Silas from the G-League to a 10-day contract with the hardship exemption per Woj.
The Boston Celtics lost out on their shot at Sean Kilpatrick after he agreed to sign with the Chicago Bulls, but they moved quickly on to G-League guard Xavier Silas.
Silas will sign a 10-day contract with the Celtics via the hardship exemption, reports ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowksi. Silas last played in the NBA for the Philadelphia 76ers for two games in 2012.
He has averaged 18.4 points on 38% three-point shooting for the Northern Arizona Suns in 43 G-League games this year, including 23 points against the Texas Legends last week. The 30-year-old has been one of the better scorers in the G-League for some time, even playing with the Maine Red Claws in 2012-2013 after a brief NBA stint with the Sixers.
Silas presents one valuable factor to Boston in that he is a knockdown catch-and-shoot guard, who can turn into a shot in the blink of an eye and averaged 9 three-point attempts per game this season.
