Seven-Footer Attempting to Play for the Celtics this Summer

The Celtics had Jerome Jordan in mind last summer when they were looking to add another big man. Jordan will play for the Celtics in this year's summer league to see if he can make the team next season. Jordan will play also for the Knicks and Pacers in their summer leagues this July as well.

Jerome Jordan stands at 7 feet tall and was drafted in the 2nd round (44th overall) in the 2010 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. Jordan hasn't played in the NBA since the 2011-12 season with the Knicks where he averaged 2 points and 1.3 rebounds per game in 21 games played. He had a good season this year in the NBA Development League where he averaged 12.4 points and 7.6 rebounds per game.

Jerome Jordan had a good college career playing for the University of Tulsa averaging 11.3 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game in all of his 4 seasons at the university. According to, Jordan was compared to former NBA All-Star Theo Ratliff with all of his rebounding and shot blocking capabilities.

As we all know, the Celtics will have very little to work with on a tight budget this summer. If Jordan impresses the Celtics down in Orlando during the summer league games, he could end up becoming a steal for them. Who knows, we may see him in October for training camp.
