Celtics Invite Undrafted Rookie Gilbert Brown To Camp

No, we're not talking about the 400 pound defensive lineman for the Packers.

Gilbert Brown to attend Celtics camp - A. Sherrod Blakely - Comcast Sportsnet has learned that [Gilbert] Brown will be with the Celtics when training camp begins on Friday.

"He had a number of options that he considered, but ultimately felt the Celtics were the best fit, best situation for him," his agent, T.J. Doyle, told on Tuesday.

It will be interesting to see if he can stick. From what I've read, he's a defensively-oriented swing man with good size and athleticism. He's experienced (a fifth year senior) so he probably doesn't have a ton of upside, but maybe he's good enough to hang onto a roster spot as a defensive hustle player.
