Celtics Legend and 10-Time NBA Champion Sam Jones Dies at 88

The Celtics announced that 10-time NBA champion Sam Jones died Thursday evening in Florida. He was 88 years old.

Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss told the Associated Press that Jones had recently been hospitalized due to his failing health. The team paid tribute to Jones with a moment of silence before Friday's game against the Suns.

During his career, Jones won 10 NBA titles, including eight alongside Bill Russell—the second most of any player in NBA history. He averaged 17.7 points and nearly five rebounds per game. In the 1964–65 season, Jones led the league in scoring with 25.9 points per game.
