Carsen Edwards shot 10-for-16 from the floor for 30 points with three boards, one block and nine triples in 21 minutes against the Cavs on Tuesday.
Wow. Edwards was unconscious from beyond the arc, going 9-for-15 and putting on an absolute show. Eight of his treys came in the third quarter, where Edwards scored 26 of his 30 points alone. He will play behind Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart at point guard this season, but he is worth being on the radar in deep leagues and a name to stash away in case of injuries. Remember the name.

Robert Williams will start Tuesday against the Cavs alongside Brad Wanamaker, Carsen Edwards, Semi Ojeleye and Grant Williams.
Willaims gets his crack in the starting Celtics C carousel tonight after playing just 11 minutes on Sunday. There are a lot of cheap options to choose from on the Celtics for tonight's three-game DFS slate.

Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Magic.
Kemba is currently getting drafted in the second-third round in standard redraft leagues. The Celtics are likely being overly-cautious with their All-Star point guard. If Kemba ends up sitting out, Marcus Smart, Carsen Edwards and Romeo Langford could see more opportunity. It is worth noting that Langford is listed as probable with a groin injury.

The Boston Celtics have made the signing of rookie Carsen Edwards official.
Edwards has been spectacular all summer long and looks like he could be a scorer in this league for years to come. There is a chance he can crack low-end rotation minutes in his first season as a ball handler behind Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart, making him a guy worth monitoring in very deep leagues.

The Celtics have selected Purdue guard Carsen Edwards with the 33rd pick in the draft.
Edwards was a consensus All-American in the 2018-19 season after averaging 24.3 points per game. He exploded in the NCAA tournament and carried Purdue as far as they could go. He could immediately come in as a spark plug off the bench for a depleted Celtics team. Edwards offers natural scoring ability and playmaking that could help lift the Celtics bench. He will likely not have a huge role in year one, but offers some good scoring appeal in deep leagues.

Carsen Edwards completed his workout with the Sixers and has already worked out for the Pacers, Nets and Jazz.
Additionally, Edwards will work out for the Celtics, Thunder, Bucks and another undisclosed team — no secrecy, he just forgot which team that was. Edwards raised his profile with a strong showing in the NCAA tournament and looks likely to be selected in the back half of the first round. The Sixers have reportedly been looking for a player who could jump in and contribute right away, as most of these hopeful contenders tend to target guys who can contribute on value contracts. That may be something to keep in mind for fantasy owners in deep leagues and dynasty formats depending on where Edwards ends up.

Carsen Edwards met with the Heat on Thursday after the draft combine.
Edwards is a six-foot tall point guard who played for Purdue for three seasons. He is expected to be a second round pick in the draft. The Heat are keeping their options open and look to have interest in several guys. It has also been reported that LSU’s Naz Reid will meet with the Heat in Chicago after playing only one season in college. Reid, a 6’10” center, is projected to be a late first round/early second round pick. Reid is more of a project than Edwards but has a higher ceiling given his physical attributes.

Purdue’s Carson Edwards said his decision to stay in the draft depends on feedback he gets from multiple NBA teams.
Edwards has already worked out for with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs and Boston Celtics. He has upcoming sessions scheduled with the Detroit Pistons, Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks. He was a 5’11” shooting guard at Purdue but has already been informed by a few teams that he needs to work on this point guard skills as he’s too short to play off-guard in the NBA. Considering he’s unlikely to get a guarantee, we’ll probably see Edwards back at Purdue next season to work on running a team.
