Add DeShawn Sims to the youngsters that have been extended invites to Celtics' training camp in October. From the Ann Arbor News:I don't see Sims making the final cut, but stranger things have happened. Could be a nice little battle brewing for those 14th and 15th roster spots in training camp, which is a rarity as teams usually are pretty much set nowadays going into camp.

Former Michigan basketball forward DeShawn Sims is heading to camp.
"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.
