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.
