The 24-year-old point guard will spend a full season overseas for the first time in his career. He was with the Grizzlies’ squad in the Las Vegas Summer League, but appeared in just one game.
Waters played most of last season in the G League, but was able to land a pair of 10-day contracts during the height of the NBA’s COVID-19 outbreak. He signed a 10-day deal with Toronto on December 22 and another with Washington on January 1, getting into three total games.
A second-round pick by the Celtics in 2019, Waters spent his first two seasons in Boston on two-way contracts. He signed with the Bucks last September, but was waived before the start of the season.
With Metropolitans 92, Waters will team up with Victor Wembanyama, who is projected to be the top pick in the 2023 draft.
