Ed Waters, the father of Boston Celtics rookie Tremont Waters was found dead in a West Haven, Connecticut, hotel on Thursday. The 49 year old was found by police around noon on Thursday after they responded to a report of an ill person.
Tremont Waters, a point guard at LSU, was picked up second round (no.51 overall) by the Boston team in last month’s draft.
He averaged 10 points and 5.3 assists in four games during the Las Vegas Summer League. The Celtics do not have a summer league game scheduled for Friday, according to NBA reports.
