Former Celtics forward Walter McCarty will rejoin the team as an assistant coach, a league source confirmed to the Globe Tuesday night.
With the addition of McCarty, a 6-foot-10-inch forward who played for the Celtics from 1997 to 2005, to new head coach Brad Stevens’s staff, Stevens, who has no NBA experience, gains the valuable perspective of an ex-NBA player that should help ease Stevens’s transition into the league.
McCarty is also a product of the Kentucky Wildcats, as is Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo. A league source had previously told the Globe that the Celtics were looking to add a staff member “who can bond with Rondo, someone he can relate to and trust.”
