Memphis has been awarded Lester Hudson off waivers, a league source tells Y! Sports. The Celtics let the rookie point guard go this week.
Memphis had scouted Hudson a great deal at nearby Tennessee-Martin, before Boston had picked him with the 58th pick of June Draft.
For Hudson, signing with the Grizzlies will be a nice trip home. He grew up in Memphis and went to school nearby, so returning to Memphis should be a positive.
Plus, he’ll be fighting for minutes with Jamaal Tinsleyand Mike Conley instead of Rajon Rondo.
