Lemon signed in late July to a two-way contract, with it being no secret that the majority of his playing time would come as a member of Boston’s G-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.
Sure enough, that remained the case as the 26-year-old averaged 23.5 points and 5.6 assists in Maine.
His quest to find even a semi-permanent landing spot will now continue, after starting his professional career in Europe and spending some time last season with the New Orleans Pelicans.
