Report: Celtics Invite DeShawn Sims To Training Camp

While this news isn’t as flashy as a potential trade for Rudy Fernandez, it’s still something: the Boston Celtics have invited former University of Michigan forward DeShawn Sims to their fall training camp, according to AnnArbor.com. Sims played for Boston’s Summer League team in Orlando.

“I got invited to Celtics training camp,” Sims said in a text message Tuesday.

It is the latest stop on Sims’ attempt to find a professional home after not being selected in June’s two-round NBA Draft.

The 6-foot-8 Sims played on two summer league teams last month – with Boston in Orlando and then with Dallas in Las Vegas. He played better with the Celtics, averaging 7.5 points and 1.8 rebounds in 13.3 minutes over four games.
