Former Gonzaga and Kansas swingman Micah Downs will be in #celtics camp. He played in Russia last season

With the addition of Rob Kurz, Darko Milicic, and now Micah Downs, the Celtics will have 19 players in training camp. They are limited to 20 training camp players so there is room for one more player if they decide to bring another in. I hear Robert Swift is still available. The camp attendees who don't make the roster would be eligible to sign with the Celtics owned and run D-League Maine Red Claws. The Celtics will be also able to assign three "affiliated" players to Maine out of camp and I expect them to do so, especially with the partially guaranteed players who miss out on that 15th roster spot.
Downs is a 6'7" SG/SF who is 26 years old. He has participated in Summer League for 3 years after going undrafted in the 2009 draft. He played for Phoenix in 2009, Milwaukee in 2010 and for Dallas this season. He has played in Europe the past 2 seasons. After his first season at Liga ACB, Downs won the ACB Rising Star Award.
