Articles about Chris Babb

July 6, 2014

Chris Babb - Babb started the season with the Celtics and also ended it there. He is signed through 2017, albeit all unguaranteed from here on out, and played 14 games with the team down the stretch. He didn't play them well, exclusively casting up threes and missing most of them, but he played them nonetheless. In the time in between, Babb played 33 D-League games with the Maine Red Claws and averaged 12.0 points, 6.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 37.5 minutes per game. As effective of a role player as Babb is - demonstrating good IQ, moving the ball around, throwing the occasional nice pass, rebounding a bit, and of course catching and shooting - it is a bit odd why the Celtics see so much in a player who just isn't that productive and who is merely a decent shooter on low volume, wide open attempts. They clearly like his chances of being a quality defensive player at the two guard position, despite being slightly small for the position and not a great athlete. It's a generous projection. But given that Babb contributes a bit of everything (save for penetrating the first line of a defense or contributing any offense inside the arc) whilst making strikingly few errors and playing hard, it's easy enough to see what they like. They might run out of roster spots, though.
