Just saw this tweet and my first thought was, "Who?" So, I had to do a search to find out just who the Celtics have signed. So you don't have to, here's what I found. Kurz is a 6'9" forward out of Notre Dame. He played 4 years at Notre Dame and went undrafted in the 2008 draft. He was invited to the Warriors Summer League in 2008 and then played 40 games for the Warriors that season averaging 3.9 points and 2.0 rebounds in 11 minutes per game.
The following season he played for Fort Wayne Mad Ants in the D-League where he played in 39 games, averaging 18.9 points and 10.9 rebounds in 37 minutes per game. He played in Europe the past 3 seasons with declining stats each season. His points per game went from 13.9 to 6.9 to 6.7 in the three years overseas while his rebounds per game went from 9.1 to 4.9 to 3.9.
He played with the Sacramento Kings Summer League entry this summer and appeared in 3 games, scoring 1.7 points per game and pulling down 6.0 rebounds per game. In their game against the Celtics, he played 15 minutes and didn't score but grabbed 8 rebounds to go with 4 personal fouls and 4 turnovers.
I wouldn't get too excited about training camp invitees. Remember that a very out of shape Michael Sweetney was a camp invitee a couple years back.

It was so good to see some tweets on the Celtics today. The season is getting closer and it's exciting to see Celtics in town and reporters talking about it. First up was a picture of the parquet floor being shipped out to be refinished for the start of the season. Hopefully they get it back all shiny and new in time for the season.
And the morning started out with Dionte...

Fabricio Paulino de Melo, better known as Fab, was selected by the Celtics with the 22nd pick in the draft. His game is very raw and he is definitely going to be a project. He just started playing basketball 3 or 4 years ago, and spent just 2 years at Syracuse...
The Celtics have released a photo on instagram of the new plates that will go on the Celtics lockers this season. The season is getting closer and closer. I'm getting more and more excited for it to start. A neat feature of the locker plates is that they feature the names of all the Celtics that wore the numbers before. I love that they put the former players on the nameplates...
You gotta watch this funny video summarizing Rajon Rondo’s internship at GQ headquarters in New York City.
I want to thank everyone at GQ, it’s been real, but I won’t be back next year.
I won’t forget what you guys did to me.
Don’t call or email.
I’ve included a couple of the better screenshots.
Jason Terry has settled into his new home and "The Jet" is ready for takeoff. Terry, who signed as a free agent with the Celtics this summer, provided fans with a video tour of his new place in Weston, Mass. In the video, produced by Reebok, Terry assigns a place for some artwork above his mantel and designates a spot for the all-important ping-pong table. He also sits...
Everyone, not just Celtics fans, have been concerned about Bill Russell since news of his heart procedure came out. Today, NBA.com posted an interview with the Celtics legend where he addresses the procedure and the state of his health, his Mentors' Golf Challenge, Team USA's performance in London, Ray Allen's departure, Jeremy Lin and much more.
Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo got the internship experience as he worked with GQ magazine for New York fashion week, reminds me of my time interning, the good old days. Anyway check out this comical video as Rajon struggles to fulfill his internship duties.

I don't usually post a lot of videos, and now two in a row. But, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, here is Reebok's video catching up to Jason Terry as he lands in Boston with his family and shows us his new home. Every time I hear Jason talk, I get excited. He's so excited to be a Celtic and when he talks about his intensity for the game mixed with KG's...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Meanwhile, the player who Barnes would essentially be replacing, Martin, remains unemployed despite his reputation as a tenacious defender and enforcer. He’s the sort of veteran that could come in handy for any...
Rondo just completed an insane media tour across the globe and he pretty much ended it yesterday in Bristol, Connecticut, home of SportsCenter.
He was there to film another infamous SportsCenter commercial and in between shoots decided go outside and toss the pigskin for awhile.
Like I said, damn fun.
The Brooklyn Nets unveiled their new basketball court this week and they're taking a page out of Boston's playbook with a herringbone pattern. Here's the Nets' CEO, Brett Yormark, on the court design:
"The vision all along was to have something that was truly identifiable and unique and when people turned on their TVs at home, know they were in Brooklyn,"...
