Boston Celtics sign guard RJ Hunter to two-way contract (report)

He was fresh off leading his 14th-seeded Panthers past Baylor University in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament by burying a 30-footer in the waning seconds.

Despite some big performances in the G-League for the Maine Red Claws, Hunter could never shoot his way into the regular rotation, averaging just 30 percent from 3.

Hunter has since had NBA stints with the Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets, but he couldn’t hang on with either.

The latest stop in what Hunter hopes is a longer-term NBA gig bring him back to Boston.

His agency announced the signing on Twitter today, and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported it was a two-way deal.

The 15th spot is still occupied by Jabari Bird as his domestic violence case works through the criminal justice system.
