He was essentially New Orleans version of Pierria Henry, but willing to stay in the states instead of signing for more money overseas.

Pierra Henry can't touch his athletic ability.

So go back to the drawing board on that one, eh?

That being said, he is a two way with low expectations for him.

Geez, I didn't mean they were carbon copies of each other. They're athletic 25-year-old point guards with little to no NBA experience who could be passable 15th men on a roster. Neither seems very comfortable shooting a three; Lemon is better at dunking.

Is he a combination of Walt Frazier and Medowlark Lemon?  :D

Walt Frazier and Liz Lemon

First names that came to mind for me were a cross between WALTer Matthau and Jack LEMmON. Showing my age group a little I guess.

Brilliant!

Word is Coach Stevens took the signing and is looking forward to making the most of the situation. "When Danny gives you Lemons, make lemonade.", he quipped.

The Celtics have now officially signed Walt Lemon Jr. 
https://www.nba.com/celtics/news/pressrelease/celtics-sign-walt-lemon-jr-two-way-contract

With no two-way contract spots left, I expect Jabari Bird to be signed by the team very soon.  His tweet this morning was the grateful emoji.

They released Kadeem Allen. Doesn't that make a two way contract spot being available with Bird being able to fill it, if the front office decides not to bring him aboard on a contract.

Unless I’m misremembering, I thought they had previously signed Pierra Henry to a 2-way.  (But upon googling, I misremembered, or perhaps dreamed this?  It seemed so real to me.)

Correct.

Speaking of Allen, he just hooked on with the Knicks, although it just looks like a training camp deal.
