Colton Iverson has signed with Baskonia of the Spanish League.

Iverson averaged 17.5 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks in the Turkish League last season, but faced an uphill battle to make the Celtics' roster for the 2014-15 season. While Boston will retain the rights of the 25-year-old, it's starting to look like the 2013 second-round pick may never wear Celtic green in the NBA.

Celtics president Danny Ainge said he's "anxious" to see prospect Colton Iverson play during Summer League, but admitted that it's "not a certainty" he'll make the roster next season.

"I could easily go to Vegas and try to impress other teams, but [the Celtics] have already invested a lot in me, so I figure it’s in my best interest to go right out to Boston," said Iverson, who played in Turkey last season. The Celtics' roster is in turmoil and they already have guys like Jared Sullinger, Kelly Olynyk and Vitor Faverani on the roster, so Iverson faces a steep climb to earn a guaranteed roster spot.

Celtics prospect Colton Iverson will begin working out in Boston as soon as this week, as he fights to earn a roster spot for 2014-15.

Iverson played for the Turkish team Besiktas last season, averaging 17.5 points, 10.9 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks, though he also committed 4.1 turnovers and 5.7 personal fouls in just 21 minutes per game. Those numbers speak eloquently about both his upside and lack of refinement, and his ability to make Boston's roster may depend upon their moves in the draft and free agency this summer.

Colton Iverson signed a one-year deal to play in Turkey next season.

He'll join Besiktas of the Turkish League and the Colorado State product will have to work on his skills as a player. He has the size at 7'0", 263 pounds and playing overseas could help him get some confidence. Kelly Olynyk gets a minimal boost with less competition.

The Pacers selected F/C Colton Iverson of Colorado State and traded him to the Celtics.

He's a big body at 7'0" and 263 pounds, but he doesn't have much of a skill set that will transfer to the NBA off the bat. While the Celtics are going to need some bodies, Iverson isn't likely going to make the team.
