Celtics waive Lester Hudson

In a rather shocking move, the Celtics waived guard Lester Hudson just before the deadline that the team had to guarantee his contract for the rest of the season, Hudson participated in the team’s shootaround this morning and I talked to him about his contract and he had no idea whether his deal was guaranteed or whether he would be waived.

“I let my agent handle all of that,” he said this morning.

If Hudson clears waivers, the Celtics could sign him to a 10-day contract. The Celtics brought Hudson to Miami, had him participate in shootaround only to release him in the afternoon. The NBA can be brutal at times.

Hudson, a second-round pick, played in 16 games and averaged 1.4 points. He played 12 minutes in Saturday’s win over Toronto and scored five points.
