Celtics Waive Former First-Round Pick R.J. Hunter


The Boston Celtics waived former first-round pick R.J. Hunter in advance of Monday’s deadline to trim the regular-season roster to a maximum of 15 players.

Unable to find a trade that could have saved the team from eating salary or brought back an asset, the team elected to simply move on from Hunter, the 28th pick of the 2015 draft.
