Yet another recent Boston Celtics alumnus may soon be finding a roster spot overseas, with news that the Celtics’ No. 33 pick of the 2019 NBA draft Carsen Edwards is in advanced talks to sign a deal with famed Turkish ball club Fenerbahce Beko per SportsTV’s Umit Avci via EuroHoops’ Bugra Uzar.
The Purdue product played two seasons with Boston before he was dealt with reserve point guard Kris Dunn and a 2026 second-round draft pick to the Memphis Grizzlies for Juancho Hernangomez in September of 2021. He would be cut by the Griz, and subsequently inked a deal with the Detroit Pistons for the 2021-22 NBA season.
Now a free agent, it is looking like playing with Fenerbahce Beko in Istanbul in the Euroleague and BSL leagues will be his most profitable and high-level option for the Texan guard’s near-term future.
