Add DeShawn Sims to the youngsters that have been extended invites to Celtics’ training camp in October. From the Ann Arbor News:
Former Michigan basketball forward DeShawn Sims is heading to camp.
“I got invited to Celtics training camp,” Sims said in a text message Tuesday.
Sims, a 6’8″, 225-lb. combo forward, played his college basketball at Michigan, where as senior he was second-team All Big Ten. He was undrafted in the 2010 NBA draft, but played four games for the Celtics in the Orlando summer league and four games for the Mavericks in the Las Vegas summer league. In the Orlando summer league, he averaged 7.5 points and 1.8 rebounds. Sims is the second player invited to training camp from the Orlando summer league team, joining Northeastern guard Matt Janning, who has yet to accept his invitation.
