Two former Boston Celtics players have found themselves a team to latch on with at the NBA’s G League level, with guard Carsen Edwards inking a deal to play for the Utah Jazz’ G League team the Salt Lake City Stars, while onetime Celtics center Greg Monroe linking up with the Washington Wizards’ developmental affiliate in the G League, the Capitol City Go Gos.

The news was first reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania Friday morning and is perhaps a bit of a surprise given both could likely earn bigger paychecks abroad. But there is perhaps good reason to stay within the league’s developmental system if they hope to play at the NBA level again soon.

Edwards was cut by the Celtics during the offseason before the 2021-22 season, having played three seasons for Boston without making many inroads into the team’s rotation.

Monroe last played in the NBA in the 2018-19 season, including a 2-game stint with the Celtics.
