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.

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.

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.
