Larkin, a former first-round pick from the University of Miami (FL), played in the NBA for four seasons – all with different teams. He was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks and promptly traded on draft night to the Dallas Mavericks.
As a member of the Celtics last season, Larkin was the third-string point guard behind Terry Rozier and Kyrie Irving. After Irving went down with a knee injury, Larkin’s role expanded. For his career, Shane Larkin averaged 5.5 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game.
