Rookie Hudson gets waived

Rookie guard Lester Hudson was waived by the Celtics on Wednesday, one day before his contract would have become guaranteed.

Hudson was scheduled to make $457,588 this season, which would seem like minimal savings for a team on pace to spend $84.7 million. So the move may be more with an eye toward opening a roster spot than to save money.

The Celtics could sign Hudson to a non-guaranteed deal if he clears waivers.
