Griz Claim Lester Hudson

Posted By on Fri, Jan 8, 2010 at 6:36 PM

This afternoon the Grizzlies claimed Memphis native Lester Hudson off waivers. Hudson, who played college ball at UT-Martin, was a late second-round pick of the Boston Celtics in last summer's draft and was waived by the Celtics January 6th.

A 6'3" combo guard who averaged 28 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2.3 steals a game last season at UT-Martin, Hudson is known as a live athlete and volume scorer. He hadn't played much for the Celtics this season, but had acquitted himself well in two stints with the Developmental League's Maine Red Claws, averaging 15 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists. Hudson, 25, is old for a rookie.

Hudson will not be active for tonight's game against the Utah Jazz.
