The Boston Celtics have claimed free agent forward Jarell Eddie off NBA waivers, a league source told RealGM.
Eddie was recently released by the Atlanta Hawks, and he drew multiple waiver bids before the Celtics were awarded his rights. Eddie, who has a non-guaranteed contract, could be being signed to be released as part of Boston’s allocated players to Maine in the NBA D-League.
Eddie scored eight points and grabbed two rebounds in 39 minutes over four preseason games for the Hawks.
Eddie, a standout at Virginia Tech, went undrafted in the June NBA Draft. He played in the summer league for the Washington Wizards.
