Aaron Nesmith Career
A High School Career
As an eighth-grader, he was called up to the varsity basketball team while attending Porter-Gaud School. As a sophomore, he won the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA) Class 3A state title as his team’s leading scorer. Moreover, he led Porter-Gaud to two more Class 3A state championships in his final two seasons. He went on to average 21 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game as a senior and was named South Carolina Gatorade Player of the Year because of his success in basketball and academics.
Thus he left high school as a three-time SCISA Class 3A player of the year. Moreover, he was a four-star recruit in high school and was the 64th-ranked player in the country. The 12th-ranked shooting guard in the country and the 2nd-ranked in all of South Carolina. On September 19, 2017, he ended up committing to Vanderbilt. ESPN and 247Sports rated him as a four-star recruit and he went on to commit to Vanderbilt over offers from Florida, South Carolina, Havard, Virginia Tech, and Columbia.
A College Career
In his freshman season for Vanderbilt, he assumed an important role after Darius Garland suffered a season-ending injury and Simisola Shittu underachieved. He then started in a majority of his games and averaged 11 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. And went on to lead the Commodores in scoring in conference play. Following two career games, he was named Southeastern Conference (SEC) Freshman of the Week on February 18, 2019.
He went on to score a season-high 26 points against Florida and posted a double-double of 24 points and a season-high 14 rebounds against Auburn. On November 6, 2019, he made his sophomore season debut, scoring 25 points including seven-three pointers in a win over Southeast Missouri State. He made his four straight threes in a span of one minute and 39 seconds. On December 6, he was named to the Oscar Robertson Trophy watch list. He then matched his career-high 34 points on December 21 and connected on seven three-pointers in a victory over UNC Wilmington.
The best mark of his career came on January 4, 2020, when he scored 29 points and made eight three-pointers as his team lost to SMU in overtime. It was initially announced on January 11, 2020, that he would miss the remainder of the season with a right foot injury that he suffered in a loss to Auburn. In 14 games, he averaged 23 points and 4.9 rebounds per game, shooting 52.25 from three-point range. However, on January 28, after having surgery, he indicated that he might return before the end of the season. He thus did not return and after the end of the season declared for the 2020 NBA draft.
A Professional Career
A Career with the Boston Celtics (2020 to 2022)
He was selected by the Boston Celtics with the 14th pick in the first round of the 2020 NBA draft. The Boston Celtics then signed Aaron to a four-year, $16.5 million rookie contract on November 24, 2020. The contract included team options in the third and fourth years. For the first few months of the season, it was difficult for Aaron to crack the regular rotation. This was because fellow rookie teammate, Payton Pritchard absorbed many of injured Kemba Walker‘s minutes.
With injuries and Covid protocols plaguing the Celtics all season, extended absences from Marcus Smart, Kemba Walker, and other players gave Aaron enough opportunities to showcase not only his shooting but also his gritty hustle and winning attitude. On April 28, 2021, he put on a show with multiple career highs including 15 points, 9 rebounds, three steals, and three blocks in a win against the Charlotte Hornets. He continued this momentum into the next two games where he eclipsed. He then matched his career high with back-to-back 16-point performances. And he played for the Celtics in the 2021 NBA summer league. He and the Celtics went on and reached the 2022 NBA Finals but lost in 6 games to the Golden State Warriors.
