ATLANTA–Former Morehouse College All-American Tyrius Walker is once again back in the NBA G-League. Walker signed a contract on Tuesday with the Maine Red Claws, the G-League affiliate of the Boston Celtics.
Walker averaged 23.7 points per game last season before an invite to the NBA’s Las Vegas Summer League with the New York Knicks. He averaged 6.3 points, two assists and 1.7 steals per game. Walker’s performance earned him a training camp invite with New York before being released prior to the start of the NBA season.
Morehouse went on a school-record 18-game winning streak with Walker last season en route to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Division II tournament.
Walker could see action with the Red Claws as soon as Friday night.
