Celts’ Waters nets 16 just days after dad’s death


Wearing sneakers adorned with the message “Team Waters!” and “Waters Way!” Boston Celtics rookie Tremont Waters scored 16 points and had three assists in a summer league playoff game just two days after the death of his father.

Ed Waters, 49, was found dead in a West Haven, Connecticut, hotel on Thursday, according to police. The medical examiner’s office on Friday ruled Waters’ death a suicide.

Tremont Waters did not speak with reporters after Saturday’s game, a 94-88 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies that eliminated the Celtics from the summer league playoffs.

A point guard out of LSU, Waters was drafted in the second round (No. 51 overall) by the Celtics in last month’s NBA draft.
