Celtics Bringing Gilbert Brown To Camp

CSNNE reports the Celtics have invited Pittsburgh’s Gilbert Brown to training camp. The 6’6″ Brown went undrafted earlier this year, but the Celtics reportedly considered him in the spot in which they took E’Twaun Moore.

Assuming he makes the team, Brown looks like an end-of-the-bench and practice player who can fill out the roster without sacrificing cap flexibility next summer.

Chad Ford’s pre-draft scouting report:

Positives
  • Good athlete, well rounded
  • Solid shooter with 3-point range
  • Fluid in the open court
  • Good passer, unselfish
Negatives
  • Not a prolific scorer
  • Already 23 years old

We’ll also have the full 2011-12 Celtics schedule for you today just after 7 p.m. EST.

We already know that after opening at New York on Christmas Day, the Celtics will travel to Miami on the 27th to play the Heat with the home opener set for Dec. 30 against the Detroit Pistons.

    Sign him for 2 minutes a night 😀

    Rookies are fine but they likely won't see the floor much. I would like to see the Celts take a look at Rashad McCants. Not sure if he can still play but he has connections to KG and would likely come cheap. Could be a solid back up swing-man (or at least a SG).

      McCants? You can't be serious. I'd rather play Gilbert Brown 20 minutes a night. Hey i don't know who the hell he is, but the last time i heard of McCants he was crying a river about his missed opportunities or something like that, no thanks.

      • Morpheus

        Or Iverson

        You think Doc is going to play Brown? McCants might have a shot to get on the floor if he has anything left. But that is why I just said I wanted them to take a look at him to see if he is worth bringing to camp.

    Neglected to mention in post: Brown could be a b2b2b kinda guy. Get some burn just to save everybody else's legs.

    • I_Love_Green

      Yeah, was just going to say he'd be a good guy to play a lot in those games.

  • Morpheus

    The schedule's out.

  • I_Love_Green

    Well I almost puked when I saw our April schedule.

    • Morpheus

      Big 3 will be Big Burnouts by the end of April.

      I guess we can hope that their spot in the playoffs is pretty well set so if they need to rest the old guys, they can. But it looks pretty brutal.
