LSU point guard Tremont Waters has been selected No. 51 overall to the Boston Celtics at the 2019 NBA Draft. Naz Reid is still on the board with 9 picks remaining.
Waters, the New Haven (Ct.) native, is the first LSU Tiger to be drafted since Ben Simmons was taken No. 1 overall in 2016. Waters did not receive a “Green Room” invite, but was still in attendance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Waters averaged 15. 3 points, 5.8 assists and 2.8 steals per game in his sophomore year.
