#Celtics invite Justin Bibbs (Virginia Tech), others to camp.

Those three invitees ó former Virginia Tech shooting guard Justin Bibbs, former Middle Tennessee State forward Nick King and former Vanderbilt forward Jeff Roberson.

Bibbs is 6-foot-5 and spent the summer with the Celticsí entry in the Las Vegas summer league, averaging 5.0 points in six games.

King is 6-7 and played a combined 10 summer games for the Los Angeles Lakers in Las Vegas and Sacramento, posting averages of 8.6 points and 4.7 rebounds.

And Roberson is 6-6 and spent summer league with the Golden State Warriors, averaging 1.6 points in five games.

The addition of those three players would mean the Celticsí training camp roster is full at 20. Earlier this summer they added two-way players P.J. Dozier and Walter Lemon Jr. to two-way contracts. Dozier is a second cousin to late former Celtics standout Reggie Lewis.

We will be needing a Jabari replacment sooner of later. I hope this legal thing doesnt drag out and tie up that spot through camp. We could use the time to interview a veteran big for an end of the bench slot.

I know it's a slow time of year for basketball, so anything is news, but it cracks me up how some people actually get excited or intrigued with these camp signings, or summer league signings. These guys aren't gonna do anything.

Of course they wonít. But it is fun to speculate. Itís what we do here at CB. ;D

Of course they probably wonít.

 But sometimes camp invites have a future in the league, and hoops junkies like me are always up for scouting another prospect.

I root for the long shots.

Last year we carried an open roster spot into mid season when we signed Monroe.  If Bird does get cut, Ainge might well decide to do the same this year, waiting to see what our need are after half a season.

Yeah, who knows?  Nobody.  However, the odds are none of them will pan out.  They are playing for their own PR mainly, in hopes of catching on somewhere in the NBA.

I get that and it is logical that we do it again.

Just a little paranoid about our big man depth after Horford,  Baynes  and Theis.

I'm  not advocating we resign someone like Monroe at this point but you can't deny we could use the quality minutes he provided. One bigman injury could knock us out of the playoffs in the first round with our current roster. Who would we turn to? Yabusele? Williams? Semi?

Hope I'm  wrong

The Clippers intend to sign 6-5 guard Justin Bibbs to a 10-day contract tomorrow, a source told @latimes. Bibbs has averaged 11.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists for the G League's Maine Red Claws this season.
