1:15pm: Blue will re-join the D-League’s Delaware 87ers, tweets Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald.
11:27am: Vander Blue won’t receive a second 10-day contract from the Celtics, according to Shams Charania of RealGM (via Twitter). The move makes Blue a free agent, and he can seek employment with any NBA, D-League, or overseas team. Charania notes that it’s possible the Celtics could revisit adding Blue to the roster after the All-Star break.
Blue played just 15 total minutes with Boston before his 10-day deal expired overnight. The Celtics had moved blue to the Celtics’ D-League affiliate a day ago, but apparently decided against keeping him with either club for development. The undrafted rookie has averaged 17.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.6 assists in five D-League games.
