Philadelphia native and former Samuel Fels and Temple Owls’ star Dionte Christmas has agreed to terms with the Boston Celtics.
The deal will be enough to get the 6-5 guard into training camp and have him forego some higher priced opportunities overseas.
Christmas stood out for the Celtics’ summer league team, and though he was scheduled to play for Houston here after being with the C’s in Orlando, he correctly surmised that his best chance to get to an NBA camp was with Boston.
He got the word that negotiations between his agent and the Celtics were complete just before today’s loss to the Clippers.
Following the game, Christmas tweeted, “Wanna think the @celtics for giving me this opportunity to make my dream come true ….#wordscantexplain”
