Boston Celtics rookie guard JD Davison has been impressive since Summer League and now he’s showcasing himself as one of the top guards in the G League for the Maine Celtics.
Davison is averaging 16.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 6.3 assists, and 1.2 blocks per game with shooting splits of 51/37/67 on a Celtics team that sits at the top of the G League with only one loss on the year so far.
Boston’s rookie is electric and has the ability to switch it on and off at any given moment in a game. He’s also already been called up to play for Boston during this early part of the season while the team was shorthanded in Atlanta with Marcus Smart and Malcolm Brogdon out due to injury.
The Celtics currently have a handful of guards on their roster and it seems like a challenging puzzle to distribute minutes to them all, especially considering they’ve all been producing at a reasonably high clip.
The plan was never to have Davidson be in Boston this season, however it’s not hard to envision the future of Davison in Boston. He was drafted for a reason and I believe it’s to be the future point guard of the Boston Celtics.
