The father of Boston Celtics rookie Tremont Waters was found dead Thursday, police in West Haven, CT reported. The police say, Edward Waters Jr., 49, was unresponsive when they responded to a call at a Super 8 hotel on Thursday around noon. Paramedics from the West Haven Fire Department later pronounced him dead.

No further details were released as the police consider it an untimely death and their investigation are ongoing. Tremont Waters, who grew up in New Haven, CT, was selected 51st overall by the Celtics in this year's NBA draft. He signed a two-year, two-way deal with the club and is currently playing with their summer league squad in Las Vegas.

Waters had eight points and nine assists in a 113-87 out of the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday night.
