DeShawn Sims, an undrafted forward who competed for the Celtics' summer league squad and received a training camp invite, has signed a professional contract with the POAK basketball club in Greece, according to the team's website.

Sims, a 6-foot-8 Michigan product looking to make the move to the perimeter with the Celtics, likely realized that Boston's roster was quickly filling up and couldn't pass up a payday to stay stateside and compete for a job on a veteran-laden roster.

Sims averaged 16.8 points and 7.6 rebounds per game in his senior year with the Wolverines. With the Celtics, he chipped in 7.5 points per game in four summer appearances in Orlando. He also played for the Dallas Mavericks in the Las Vegas Summer League.
