Vander Blue nearly triple-doubled in a start vs. the Kings on Wednesday, scoring 15 points with eight assists, seven boards, one steal and one 3-pointer in 48 minutes.
It wasn't all great for Blue, as he shot just 6-of-23 from the field (1-of-8 from deep) and turned the ball over four times. Still, it was a pretty decent game under the circumstances, but it is unclear if the Lakers have any intention of retaining his services. Blue likely won't make an impact in fantasy leagues next season. Apr 16 - 1:47 AM

Date:

Vander Blue will start next to Jabari Brown, Ryan Kelly, Jordan Hill and Tarik Black against the Kings on Wednesday.

With no Jordan Clarkson (ankle) tonight, the Lakers basically have just two guards on their team. That means we should see a ton of minutes from Blue and Brown. It actually wouldn't be a surprise to see them both play the entire game. Give them both a look in all leagues.

Lakers sign G Vander Blue.

He only played 15 minutes in the 2013-14 season and hasn't been in the league since. Blue played in Las Vegas Summer League back in July and played 49 games in the D-League this season. In those 49 games, he averaged 23.3 points, 5.4 boards, 5.3 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.5 treys. He'll likely just be an emergency guy.

Wizards waive G Vander Blue.

Blue was invited to camp on Sept. 24 and lasted a little over one week. The colorful guard will have a tough time joining an NBA roster this season.

Vander Blue has earned a training-camp invite from the Wizards.

The Wizards have 15 guaranteed contracts, including guys like Damion James and Glen Rice Jr., so Blue is very unlikely make the roster. He made a few cameos with Boston last season, but has spent the majority of his playing time in the D-League since going undrafted out of Marquette.

Vander Blue worked out at the Verizon Center on Monday in the hopes of earning an invite to Wizards' training camp.

Blue worked out alongside Jamaal Franklin as both players are hopeful of earning an invite to Washington's training camp. While the Wizards have some open camp spot, Blue only played three NBA games last season and doesn't hold any fantasy value.

Celtics will assign G Vander Blue to the Maine Red Claws.

Blue made three appearances with the Celtics, averaging 1.7 points in 5.0 minutes per game. With Avery Bradley and Jerryd Bayless both healthy, there's no longer room in the rotation.

Vander Blue played four minutes and scored two points in his Celtic debut on Wednesday.

Blue is primarily around to give the injury-plagued Celtics backcourt depth while Avery Bradley and Jerryd Bayless get healthy. "Vander is a tough kid," Coach Brad Stevens said. "He’s a guy that’s a competitor." The Celtics may like the depth and toughness that Blue brings, but he won't bring a lot of value to any fantasy rosters in the limited minutes he's likely to see.

Celtics sign SG Vander Blue.

He went undrafted out of Marquette but caught the Celtics' eye while averaging 19.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists in the D-League. He doesn't have any fantasy appeal despite the Celtics' thin backcourt.
Wed, Jan 22, 2014 11:41:00 AM

The Celtics are expected to sign G Vander Blue out of the D-League in time for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

With Jerryd Bayless (toe) and Avery Bradley (ankle) both hurting, and Rajon Rondo not likely to play in back-to-back games, the Celtics are quite literally out of guards. Blue could actually see decent minutes tomorrow night, and the fact Bradley couldn't return to tonight's game, and the signing of Blue, suggest that Bradley could be sidelined for some time.

Vander Blue, who went undrafted out of Marquette, has signed with the Israeli team Maccabi Rishon LeZion.

He worked out with the 76ers this preseason and had a few eye-opening games during Summer League, but wasn't able to crack the regular season roster.

Vander Blue, Khalif Wyatt and Mac Koshwal were waived by the Sixers.

Blue had a decent summer league, but couldn't string together anything in the NBA this month. All three guys are highly unlikely to make another NBA team. The Sixers have a roster at 16 after this move and the release of Royce White.
Thu, Oct 24, 2013 07:25:00 PM

The Sixers signed Vander Blue to a partially-guaranteed deal on Thursday.

He had one of the more impressive games in all of summer league with a 24-point, five-triple outing, finishing with an average of 11.1 points in six contests with the Grizzlies. Blue is an undrafted rookie out of Marquette and given the Sixers' current dearth of talent on the wing, he'll have a tremendous opportunity. That said, he has his work cut out for him to make the team.

Vander Blue will reportedly play for the Grizzlies during summer league.

Blue wasn't drafted, but he did make an impression big enough to earn a spot on a summer league roster in Memphis.
