Celtics waive G Chris Babb.
He wasn't going to last long and the Celtics only had him under contract because they had to sign him to a guaranteed deal after offering him two 10-day deals in 2013-14. Babb will have a tough time catching on to another NBA roster. Sep 25 - 9:47 PM

Chris Babb is expected to be waived before the season.

The Celtics signed him to two 10-day deals last season, but then had to offer him a contract through the season following that because teams can't offer a third 10-day deal. Babb's contract for next season isn't guaranteed.

The Celtics have signed Chris Babb to a multi-year deal.

Babb's second 10-day contract ended on Thursday, so this is great news for the 24-year-old out of Penn State. This isn't, however, major fantasy news as Babb will mostly serve as bench fodder for the C's as long as Avery Bradley stays healthy. Babb hasn't seen any game action since March 12 and will be hard-pressed to provide any fantasy value with the limited minutes he's seen since joining the team.

Chris Babb is hoping to be signed for the rest of the season by the Celtics.

Babb's second 10-day contract expires on Thursday and since players cannot sign a third 10-day contract, Babb is hoping that the Celtics will sign him to a rest-of-season contract. "I’ve put it all out there," Babb said. "I’d be happy [to be signed for the remainder of the season]. I’d have that same feeling of accomplishment, but at the same time I’d still have to be motivated." Babb is only averaging 2.2 points per game during his time with the Celtics and he hasn't played since March 12, so it is unclear if the Celtics will keep him around now that Avery Bradley is healthy. Even if the Celtics do sign Babb for the rest of the season, he won't provide any fantasy value as a bench player for Boston.

The Celtics have signed Chris Babb to a second 10-day contract.

"He’s a perfect fit for what we need," said Brad Stevens. "He's not going to play 38 minutes a game, he’s going to come in, get open shots, hopefully knock those open shots down, play off other people, and be a feisty defender for us." That about sums up his role in Boston, and his 3.3 points per game aren't going to help any fantasy owners.

Celtics signed G/F Chris Babb to a 10-day contract.

Babb is a defensive stopper and 3-point specialist. He'll try to help Brad Stevens in those categories with Gerald Wallace (knee, ankle) likely done for the season.

The Celtics plan to sign Chris Babb of the D-League on Friday.

He's not exactly having a strong year in the D-League, shooting 37.9 percent from the field for 11.9 points per game in his 32 outings. Babb can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
