Your Morning Dump..Where DeShawn Sims Was Invited To Camp

KWAPT August 27, 2013 Celtics News, The Morning Dump 5 Comments

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

According to Eurobasket.com’s David Pick, Michigan star and former Maine Red Claw Deshawn Sims has been invited to attend Celtics training camp this fall:

Since going undrafted in 2010, Sims has literally been around the world & back in the pursuit of his hoop dreams. He played with P.A.O.K. in Greece, the Red Claws of the NBDL, Piratas de Quebradillas of the Puerto Rican league & in both South Korea and Lebanon. He’s still young at 25, but Sims has been through quite a bit more than the average twenty-five year old. He was thrust into the “man of the house” role at 14 after his father was sent to prison, and his brother Marcus was killed during his freshman year at Michigan. Many would have let life get the better of them, but Sims went on to graduate from UM and continue his dream of one day playing in the NBA.  He’s a strong-willed kid who will no doubt go into camp ready to fight for a spot on the C’s roster.

Sims just wrapped up a successful season with Hekmeh BC of the Lebanese league where he averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds a game. Celtics training camp opens in approximately 5 weeks.

    If rondo is not gonna be ready by December they need to bring twill back and have him start at point guard if they ave him minutes he would def be successful. I don trust pressey starting the season rite away.

      Theres no way in hell Pressey starts. AB is going to go back to doing what he was doing last season after Rondo went out. Why wouldnt he when we have 6 guards that aren’t Rondo anyways?

      PG – AB, PP, Lee or Jcraw
      SG – Lee or Jcraw, Brooks, Bogans

      thats how it’ll be, almost guaranteed (assuming we have all those players when the season starts)

        Woah just realized how weird it is typing PP and not meaning Paul Pierce

    Great move as he was also the DLeague ROY in 2011. Dude can score. He could be really good off the bench 1st as a third stringer, and OF Wallace is dealt maybe a 2nd stringer.

    Gotta love underdogs. Speaking of underdogs…
    I miss Leon Powe.
