Former University of Notre Dame men’s basketball guard Demetrius Jackson has signed a multi-year, five-point-five million dollar contract with the Boston Celtics. The 45th selection in the 2016 NBA Draft, Jackson’s deal spans three seasons with the Celtics and the team has an option for a fourth.
“Demetrius had the potential to become a next level player as soon as he joined our program,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said.
“He continued to work hard on his development and has now earned an opportunity to compete at the highest level with one of the NBA’s best organizations. His work ethic and leadership abilities give him a foundation to develop into a 10-year guy in the league.”
