On this day in Boston Celtics history, former Celtics shooting guard Tony Harris was born in Monroe, Louisiana in 1967. Harris played for the University of New Orleans before going undrafted in the 1990 NBA draft, and briefly with the Philadelphia 76ers at the NBA level before landing with Boston as an unrestricted free agent in 1994.
He would play in the Philippines Basketball League (PBL) briefly in the 1992-93 season, scoring 105 points in a game to set a record in that league that still stands today. While Harris played for the Celtics for two seasons, he only appeared in eight games.
He averaged 7.3 points, 1.3 rebounds, and an assist per game over that stretch, as brief as it was.
