Former Northeastern standout Matt Janning has received an invitation to Celtics training camp. The Watertown native turned in a solid performance as the Orlando Summer League and Las Vegas Summer League, where he played for the Phoenix Suns’ entry.
The 6-foot-4 guard participated in two games for the Celtics, scoring 20 points in a July 7 game against the Charlotte Bobcats. He then joined the Suns and averaged 12.6 points in five games, including a 22-point game on July 14 against Cleveland.
Janning was first team all-CAA in averaging 15.4 points for the Huskies. The Watertown native shot 44.7 percent in seven summer league games.
