The Boston Celtics signed undrafted rookie free agent guard out of Providence AJ Reeves to their Summer League team. Reeves spent four years at Providence College and is a Roxbury native that grew up a Celtics fan.
A dream came true for Reeves, even if it happened in a different way than he imagined. He’ll get the opportunity to showcase his abilities for the team he rooted for growing up. I cannot fathom what that must feel like.
In four years at PC, Reeves averaged 9.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game for the Friars. Reeves started in 88 of his 107 total games while at Providence.
Reeves can shoot and make all the shots from just about anywhere on the court and can turn it on with the flip of a switch. He shot 21-38 from behind the arc over the final five games of the regular season last year. He can really shoot it from deep like it’s nothing.
Reeves ranks sixth all-time in PC history with 191 made 3-pointers. He made a name for himself by making highly contested 3-pointers with what looks like ease to him.
In all, Reeves is a great signing for the Celtics this summer. It allows them to get a much closer look at a local player with a ton of potential. If you watched college basketball last season, then you know who AJ Reeves is.
