Former Guard Oliver Lafayette Makes NBA Debut with Celtics on Wednesday

April 15, 2010

HOUSTON - Former University of Houston guard Oliver Lafayette made his National Basketball Association debut with the Boston Celtics in their regular-season finale at the TD Garden on Wednesday night.

Playing nearly 22 minutes, Lafayette scored seven points on 3-of-6 shooting, including a 3-pointer, with four rebounds and a pair of assists in a 106-95 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. He became the 23rd player in Houston history to compete at basketball's highest level.

A two-year letterman, Lafayette competed for the Cougars form 2005 to 2007. He appeared in all 64 games during that stretch, scoring 961 points. He averaged 14.3 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists as a senior during the 2006-07 campaign and received All-Conference USA Second-Team honors for the second straight season.

Lafayette was signed by the Celtics earlier in the day Wednesday off the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. He became the record 40th Gatorade Call-Up of the 2009-10 NBA Developmental League season.

He appeared in 48 games for Fort Wayne during the 2009-10 NBA D-League regular season, averaging 17.1 points, 6.5 assists and 1.8 steals in 35.3 minutes. Lafayette scored in double figures 40 times with seven double-doubles, including a season-high 34 points against the Maine Red Claws in mid-March.
