The Celtics had until Tuesday to decide whether or not to guarantee Pressey’s contract. Pressey averaged 2.8 points and 3.2 assists in 75 games for the Celtics last season. He was very productive in the team’s recent five-game summer league stretch in Orlando, leading the Celtics in assists. He figures to spell Rajon Rondo as the primary backup ball handler in Boston.
