The Boston Celtics are trying to get the best players that they can on the roster for next season. As of now, they’re trying to fill all training camp spots and give make enough room for competition to better the team.
That’s what you do when you fill a roster–sign players who you think will be able to compete for positions on the team. That’s what the Celtics are doing with Kammron Taylor. Taylor has accepted a training camp invite from the Boston Celtics according to Real GM.
Taylor, a former Wisconsin Badger, went undrafted in 2007. That same summer he had a Summer League stint with the Minnesota Timerwolves where he played well. Since, Taylor has been playing overseas professionally.
Taylor is a 29 year old point guard with tons of professional experience since going undrafted in 2007. He’s just the type of player you’d need to push a Phil Pressey for the Celtics’ backup point guard spot.
This is a position that the Celtics have struggled with in the past and one that they need to fill going forward. This is especially the case with Rajon Rondo out with a torn ACL and no accurate timetable for his return.
As far as other training camp invites go, the Celtics also signed DeShawn Sims earlier in the week. Training camp should be interesting for the C’s, to say the least.
