NBA Trade News: Warriors To Give Chris Babb Opportunity In Training Camp
The Golden State Warriors acquired Chris Babb from the Boston Celtics in the David Lee trade. The Warriors will give Babb an opportunity to make a team in their training camp. Babb played a key role in the Maine Red Claws of the Boston Celtics in the D-League. His efforts were appreciated by the Celtics.
The Golden State Warriors have yet to waive him. Now he gets another opportunity to make it in to the final roster of the reigning champions. The Warriors have their NBADL affiliate in Santa Cruz, Calif.
Babb went undrafted out of Pennsylvania State University in 2013 NBA draft. The 25-year-old, in his sophomore season, was third on the list for Penn State in terms of steals and assists. He posted 69 assists and 22 steals. He also became the second highest 3-point shooter by scoring on target 69-of-185 (37.3 percent) from beyond the arc. In 31 games and 23 starts, Babb averaged 9.3 points and 3.2 rebounds.
Babb joined the Phoenix Suns in 2013 to feature in the franchise’s summer league team in Vegas. On September 30 that year, he signed for the Boston Celtics. But the Celtics eventually waived him a month later. Then he was acquired by Maine Red Claws by an affiliate player.
In 2014, he again signed a couple of 10-day deals with Boston Celtics.
