Celtics Training Camp 2011: C's Waive Camp Invite Jamal Sampson

WALTHAM - Jamal Sampson has been waived by the Boston Celtics on Thursday, which leaves the team with 16 players on the roster with two more cuts - most likely Michael Sweetney and Gilbert Brown - likely to come before the week's end.

Celtics head coach Doc Rivers said after the C's win over the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night that the team will likely trim the roster to 14 players, leaving one spot for a potential free agent signing. To do so, they will need to cut two more.

Sampson, a forward-center, was drafted by the Utah Jazz with the No. 18 pick of the second round (No. 46 overall) of the 2002 NBA Draft. However, he was traded twice and landed with the Milwaukee Bucks. In his first season in 2002-03, Sampson played in five games and didn't score a point. Sampson has played for the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Charlotte Bobcats, Sacramento Kings and Denver Nuggets. His best season was in 2004-05 with Charlotte, where he averaged 3.4 points and 5.3 rebounds in a career-high 23 games.
