Waters really is great. Only thing is, Two-Way Contract players can't play in the NBA Playoffs.


Stupid rules ha
I am now even more perplexed by Ainge's inaction with roster


Not like we were going to play him in the playoffs anyways. Don't get me wrong, I really like his game and wish we played hm more in the season. But we didn't and Brad is a good coach. So I don't see him playing if the rules let him.

Little Tremont reminds me so much of Damon Stoudamire !
Right now he is still buried behind Romeo and Carsen but I can see TW taking some minutes by POs ... Waters' vision and facilitation is exceptional ! He shot VERY well in D league .... has looked rough up here from 3 so far but that will change !

Two-way players are indeed allowed to play in this year's playoffs FYI.

Yep. They made an exception this year, likely cause of COVID-19.

https://www.bostonsportsjournal.com/2020/06/29/two-way-players-will-eligible-play-playoffs-season/
Traditionally, two-way players are not eligible to play in postseason games though a rule that has been in place since the 2017-18 season.

However, there will be an exception to that rule for the 2019-20 season. A league source confirmed to BostonSportsJournal.com that players on two-way contracts will be allowed to suit up in the playoffs when included on the 13-man active roster for the first time in NBA history.

P.S:
They should make it a 15-Man Active Roster for the Playoffs.

Months off, and still has knee issues?

I'm almost ready to say move on from Kemba, find a pass first PG and let Tatum, Brown and Hayward shoulder the scoring load.

I wanna know if "this" refers to the problem with his knee OR the load management part of it/slow and steady ramping up of his minutes.

I don't buy that Kemba is 100% healthy and this is just load management.
