BOSTON — The Boston Celtics announced on Friday that they have signed guard Chris Babb to a 10-day contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Babb, a 6-foot-5 guard, was playing for the Celtics’ NBA Development League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, where he averaged 12.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.18 steals and 37.5 minutes in 33 games.

He is the 26th Gatorade Call-Up this season from the NBA Development League and the third time the Celtics have signed someone from the D-League this season, joining Chris Johnson and Vander Blue. Babb was on the Celtics’ roster during the 2013 preseason, where he appeared in five games for the Celtics and averaged 3.2 points in 6.0 minutes per game while shooting 44.4 percent from three-point territory.

The signing marks the first time in Red Claws franchise history a player has received a call-up from their NBA affiliate. Babb is the eighth Red Claws player to earn a call-up in team history.
