He would play with that team, the Philadelphia Warriors and the Fort Wayne Pistons before coming to the Celtics after Boston claimed him off of waivers from the Pistons.
Watch some earlier highlights of Phillip in the video below:
“Handy Andy” – as Philip was known – would win a title with the Celtics in 1957 during his two-season tenure with the team spanning 1956 to 1958.
He averaged just 3.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game in a reserve role during the twilight years of his career.
It was also on this date in 1995 that former Celtic small forward Dominique Wilkins would score 19 points off of the bench for Boston in a 110 – 115 loss to push his career scoring above 25,000 points.
