BOSTON (CBS) – In need of some depth at the guard position, the Boston Celtics have signed guard Vander Blue to a 10-day contract, the team announced on Wednesday.
The 6-5 Blue appeared in four games for the Delaware 87ers of the NBA Development League this season, averaging 19.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 30.5 minutes per game. In his last game with the 87ers on January 20, Blue scored 35 points in 39 minutes on 11-of-23 shooting from the floor and 11-of-16 shooting from the free throw line.
Prior to joining the 87ers this season, Blue played in seven games for Maccabi Rishon Le Zion in Israel where he averaged 11.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.7 assists.
An undrafted free agent in 2013, Blue was an All-Big East Second Team member during his junior season at Marquette University where he averaged 14.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists.
