2019 Fantasy Outlook
Wanamaker, a 30-year-old NBA sophomore, returns to Boston with minimal expectations. The veteran will probably champion the end of the bench for the Celtics. Wanamaker is behind star Kemba Walker, veteran Marcus Smart and rookie Carsen Edwards on the Celtics' point guard depth chart. Despite the loss of Kyrie Irving and Terry Rozier, Wanamaker will be fortunate to exceed the 36 games played that he logged last season. Should two-way rookie Tremont Waters shine with the Maine Red Claws, there is a chance Wanamaker could lose his roster spot. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

Before signing his first NBA contract with the Celtics, Brad Wanamaker played four years at the University of Pittsburgh and then seven seasons overseas. During his last two seasons at Pitt, Wanamaker started 68 straight games, averaging 12.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.3 steals per contest. After his senior season, the point guard was named an AP All-America Honorable Mention selection. Wanamaker's first professional season (2011-12) was split between Austin's D-League squad and Italy's Teramo team. Wanamaker spent all of the 2012-13 season with the French Pro A Limoges squad, but he would blossom one year later with the Italian Pistoia squad, averaging 16.2 points, 4.7 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game. That success led to two seasons with Germany's Brose Bramberg squad, where he'd have fellow future Celtic Daniel Theis as a teammate. Wanamaker would then play two seasons in Turkey with Darussafaka and Fenerbahce, respectively, before signing with the Celtics ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Plays 21 minutes in loss
GBoston Celtics
August 5, 2020
Wanamaker posted eight points (3-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three assists, three rebounds and one steal over 21 minutes in Tuesday's 112-106 loss to the Heat.
ANALYSIS
This was a nice bounce-back game from the reserve guard after he went scoreless versus the Trail Blazers on Sunday. Wanamaker has averaged 19 minutes of run over three Orlando bubble games, which is right in line with his season average. It was thought Wanamaker might see more run with Kemba Walker (knee) on a minutes restriction, but that didn't happen. Walker played 27 minutes in Tuesday's loss, so Wanamaker's window of opportunity seems to have closed. Boston now faces the Nets on Wednesday in the second game of back-to-backs for both squads.

Past Season Summaries
2018

After seven years of proving himself overseas, Wanamaker finally became an NBA rookie during his age-29 season in 2018-19. Wanamaker's body of work in France, Italy, Germany and Turkey convinced the Celtics to sign him to a one-year contract in the summer of 2018. The University of Pittsburgh product ultimately saw action in 36 games with Boston as well as two matches with the G League's Maine Red Claws. With the Celtics, the point guard averaged 3.9 points, 1.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists over 9.5 minutes per game. On Jan. 14, with Kyrie Irving out, Wanamaker played 26 minutes, producing 13 points, four assists, three rebounds and two steals against the Nets. Nine days later, Wanamaker delivered 11 points in a home win over the Cavaliers. Then, during the last game of the season, Wanamaker scored a career-high 17 points to go with seven dimes and six boards in a win over the Wizards. Wanamaker went on to appear in four of the Celtics' nine playoff games. In Game 2 of the second round against Milwaukee, he scored seven points with a steal and an assist in just 7:04 off the bench.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
After one year in the D-League followed by six seasons in Europe, Wanamaker left roughly $3.8 million on the table to return stateside and sign a rookie minimum deal with the Celtics. The 29-year-old combo guard, who played collegiately at Pittsburgh, will face an uphill battle for meaningful minutes, considering he’s behind Kyrie Irving, Terry Rozier, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart on the depth chart. Of course, the same was said about Shane Larkin this time last year, and Larkin wound up appearing in 54 games and averaging 14 minutes per contest. due in large part to injuries elsewhere on the roster. At 6-4, Wanamaker, a former teammate of Daniel Theis in Germany, has the defensive versatility that Boston covets.
