The Celtics have invited former Penn State guard Tim Frazier, Kansas State swingman Rodney McGruder, and Indiana forward Christian Watford to training camp, according to reports. With Colton Iverson signing with a team in Spain and Mike Moser likely headed to another training camp, the Celtics will enter camp with 21 players. Chris Babb and Chris Johnson are under nonguaranteed contracts and the club has yet to announce the Evan Turner deal, making their 15-man roster rather uncertain. Center Vitor Faverani remains under contract as well as Joel Anthony, who accepted his $3.8 million option for next season. Training camp is likely to remain at the team’s Waltham practice facility and not at Salve Regina in Newport R.I. Boston Globe

Sim Bhullar became the first player of Indian descent to sign a contract with an NBA team Friday, inking a deal to join the Sacramento Kings in training camp. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. "I've long believed that India is the next great frontier for the NBA, and adding a talented player like Sim only underscores the exponential growth basketball has experienced in that nation," said Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, the league's first Indian-born majority owner. "While Sim is the first player of Indian descent to sign with an NBA franchise, he represents one of many that will emerge from that region as the game continues to garner more attention and generate ever-increasing passion among a new generation of Indian fans."

Ronald Roberts is apparently headed to 76ers training camp this fall. A French Web site reported Roberts, an undrafted forward from St. Joseph's, has signed a three-year contract with the Sixers. He supposedly had until Aug. 1 to tell his French team (Chalon) that he planned to play there, which he declined to do. There are rumblings that a portion of Roberts' first year could be guaranteed. Adam Pensack, Roberts' San Francisco-based agent, said Monday that he's “going to have no comment” about contract terms, though Pensack added Roberts “had some interest with Philadelphia.” Bucks County Courier Times
