Nik Stauskas, Celtics Agree To Two-Year Contract

The Celtics have agreed to a two-year contract with guard/forward Nik Stauskas, agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman told Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.Nik Stauskas

As we relayed earlier, Stauskas has scored 57 and 43 points in his last two games with the G League’s Grand Rapids Gold.

The Gold are the Nuggets’ affiliate, and perhaps Denver will want to consider calling him up after an inexplicable home loss to the Thunder on Wednesday.

He followed his 57-pointer with a 43-point outburst vs. the Lakeland Magic on the very next night.

Stauskas, 28, is 6-foot-6 and actually signed a 10-day deal with the Heat earlier this season, when about half the NBA was in health and safety protocols. He averaged 5.5 points in those two games.

Prior to that, his previous NBA experience came with the Cavaliers in 2018-19, when he appeared in 24 games. He has also spent time with the Trail Blazers, Nets, 76ers and Kings. He carries NBA career averages of 6.8 points and 2.1 rebounds.
