In 13 G League games, Drew Peterson averaged 15.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and made 40.7 percent of his 4.5 three-pointers.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports that the Boston Celtics have agreed to a deal with Drew Peterson to fill their newly created two-way vacancy, one day after waiving forward Nathan Knight.

The franchise’s reaction to the chance to collaborate with Peterson is reflected in their decision to act in advance of the G League Showcase in Orlando next week.

He started all four of the Miami Heat’s Summer League games that he participated in. He scored ten points in each game and made 47.1% of his field goals from beyond the arc.

The Illinois native was offered a contract by the organization to attend training camp. In 20:59 minutes during his one and only preseason game with the Heat, he finished with two points, five rebounds, and an assist.

During his tenure with Miami’s G League affiliate, Sioux Falls Skyforce, Peterson averaged 15.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and 1.0 steals per game over 13 games. In addition, he made 40.7 percent of his 4.5 three-pointers and shot 52.8 percent from the field.
