The Boston Celtics are signing Roxbury, Massachusetts native AJ Reeves to play with their Las Vegas Summer League squad this month, according to Hoops Rumor’s JD Shaw. The undrafted Providence point guard will play for the Celticsi Sin City team with a thinner than anticipated backcourt rotation after stashed Israeli floor general Yam Madar elected to sit out summer league to focus on European opportunities in the short term and third-year wing Aaron Nesmith was dealt to the Indiana Pacers.

Reeves is a capable guard with some size who put up 9.9 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game last season with the Friars while shooting 37.3% from beyond the arc.

His efficiency overall is still a bit of a concern at a career 37.8% with the Friars (a large part of why he likely went undrafted).

But, Reeves will have a chance to make the case for Boston or some other team using a two way deal on him while helping to shore up the Celtics’ summer league depth next week.
