Jayson Tatum - The Celtics first round pick, #3 overall, will have the spotlight on him throughout the season, beginning with this game. 
Abdel Nader - Nader, the 58th pick in last year's draft played last season with the Red Claws and was named D-League Rookie of the Year.  Can he impress enough to make the team this season?
Semi Ojeleye - Ojeleye was projected to be drafted in the 20's but slid to the Celtics at 37.  He is an exciting player and he may make the team if he impresses enough in Summer League.
Ante Zizic - The Celtics drafted Zizic 23rd in 2016.  He impressed this past season playing for David Blatt with Darüşşafaka Doğuş.  Celtics fans are hoping to see him in Boston this season and that will begin with a strong showing in Summer League.

Sixers Summer League Roster
Brandon Austin
Jonah Bolden
James Blackmon, Jr
Isaiah Bricoe
Larry Drew III
Markelle Fultz
Aaron Harrison
Charles Jackson
Timothe Luwawu Cabarrot
Isaiah Miles
Alex Poythress
Darryl Reynolds
Kaleb Tarczewski
Melo Trimble

Players to Watch

Markelle Fultz - Fultz was the number 1 overall pick and the Celtics traded the right to draft him to the Sixers.  Celtics fans will be watching his play all season to see what they missed out on. 
Jonah Bolden - Bolden, an Australian, was taken with the 36th pick in this year's draft, one spot before the Celtics drafted Semi Ojeleye.  It will be interesting to watch the progress of these two players as well. 
Timothe Luwawu Cabarrot - Caberrot was the Sixers 2016 first round pick, 24th overall.  He played very well down the stretch for the Sixers last season and they are looking for him to pick up where he left off last season. 

Key Matchup
(http://ak-static.cms.nba.com/wp-content/uploads/headshots/nba/latest/260x190/1628369.png) vs (http://ak-static.cms.nba.com/wp-content/uploads/headshots/nba/latest/260x190/1628365.png)
Jayson Tatum vs Markelle Fultz
The Celtics finally had the #1 overall pick in the 2017 draft.  Markelle Fultz was projected by just about everyone to be the top pick but Danny was more impressed with Jayson Tatum and so traded the #1 pick to Philly for the #3 pick so as to take Tatum.  Throughout their careers, these two players will be scrutinized and compared with each other as the aftermath of this trade is debated by fans and critics alike. 

Keys to the Game
Chemistry - Both teams will have new players who more than likely won't make the team mixed with players expected to contribute this season.  Developing chemistry quickly will be a key for both teams.
Defense - Regular season or Summer League, defense is always a key to winning. 
Poise - More than likely both teams will be a bit nervous as they take the court for the first time.  The Celtics have the more experienced team and so hopefully they will be more poised and the nerves won't affect them as much.

Great job, FLCelts, on many lesser known/unknown players.

The Blackmon kid is not related to Rolando Blackmon, but his dad did play in the NBA.

I am so stoked to see our guys, but ABDEL NADER could shock the world.

Jonathan Isaac has looked pretty good for Orlando so far, 22pts , 21 reb, 3 blk in 43 minutes from 2 games.

Orlando's team also coincidentally features 3 former Red Claws - Jalen jones, Levi Randolph, and Marcus Georges-Hunt.

According to the guys on the Locked On Celtics podcast Semi is pronounced Shimmy...
Which, in my opinion, is the best.

And let's not hear any Antoine jokes

Also, Brown is putting the league on notice this SL.

Jesus Christ, Markelle Fultz is way ahead of these guys outside of probably Jaylen Brown.

The way he controlled that pick and roll is a master class, and he's only 19.

I'm starting to really tear up in my eye a bit.

Looks like he will be a handfull this year.

Zizic has done a good job recovering on D and playing good position.

Zizic is a plodder but if he can rebound and make it difficult around the basket I'm fine with it.

Yeah, you don't have to be a speed demon to be effective. Look at pre-injury Andrew Bynum.

His size, wingspan, and athletic measurements are exactly the same as Greg Monroe's. But he has a better motor.

He should be solid.

why is Blakely getting airtime. He's as outside as a celtics insider can get

He was providing some trade deadline "analysis," and he didn't seem to realize that the lakers pick is protected and turns over into the kings pick if its not between #2-6. This is something 99% of the posters here know. Just sad.

If we're depending on Zizic to be our low post star this year we're going to be sadly disappointed. He has no vertical and is slow footed. That may fly in Europe, but not here. Not even in summer league.

I don't think anyone expects him to be a star. I think he could be Gortat 2.0, which is still pretty good and something we desperately need right now.

Lucas has no clue how to run the pick and roll. When he rolls he gets no separation from the ball handler and they have no where to pass. Two quick turnovers caused by his play.

We just need him to rebound, screen, and pass.
For this season at least, a more nimble perk would be welcome. Beats zeller already. 

Tatums box score looks better than Fultz. This season will be fun to watch. Both wins and kids to develop.

I had the same exact thought. Looks less smooth.

Looks like he's dipping it and bringing it out in front of him more. It's not near as smooth or fluid as it was in college. Extra movement on it.

Jackson...man..he is not very good. I cannot see him making this roster with the guards ahead of him.

I watched him play a lot in Maine and I can confirm that he sucks. He just doesn't stand out and isn't great at any one thing, even at the D-league level.

Nader has potential though, he's long, fairly athletic, and very well-rounded.

Could have played a part in his lackluster pre-draft workouts. Whatever the case, something has changed with his shot.

I was a bit underwhelmed by him. I thought he'd be a bit more dominant, but I'll hold off on my judgment about him until I see him play a bit more. I still do think his mentality might be an issue with him not being fully committed and aggressive all of the time.

Was it just me or did Brown lose his focus towards the end of the half?

After that stretch of awesome plays in the 2nd it seemed like he became self-aware of how well he was playing and started overthinking/forcing things instead of breaking down the defense the way he had been. The charge and the turnover with the pass to the corner are 2 examples.

He still has a ways to go mentally, but we're seeing flashes of the player he could become.

I think he'll really benefit from NBA spacing. He's so good at generating space with his herky jerky dribble moves, I think once there's space those moves will end with him at the rim with space, especially alongside someone like Embiid.

Was it just me or did Brown lose his focus towards the end of the half?

After that stretch of awesome plays in the 2nd it seemed like he became self-aware of how well he was playing and started overthinking/forcing things instead of breaking down the defense the way he had been. The charge and the turnover with the pass to the corner are 2 examples.

He still has a ways to go mentally, but we're seeing flashes of the player he could become.

Nevermind...I don't think it's a problem anymore.

Tatum is gonna be a good one.....im hoping for  Tayshaun  Prince ...type game ....smart and smooth

that is actually a pretty decent comparison

Wasn't Prince a defensive-first forward who could hit open shots and Tatum touted as a really gifted offensive player with defensive question marks? I don't get the comparison, tbh.

Agree. Aside from the size and frame their games are very, very different. Prince was a 3 and D guy, Tatum is a high-skill offensive guy.

Let's be honest guys. It's clear as day Fultz has superstar potential.

I don't know what happened in the workout, but is it possible he dogged it a little so he could go to either LA or PHI? Both are better situations for a rookie PG then Boston. I know he said all the right things in the media but after the Josh Jackson chicanery I wouldn't be shocked.

That doesn't mean he's in game-shape aerobically. If he's put on more size, it only makes sense that he's not in game-shape in the summer.

It's not a critique of him. He's not expected to be in game-shape in the middle of summer, especially in this elevation. He just looks like he's a bit winded, which has forced him to put up a couple bad shots.

But there are still things you can see such as his smoothness handling the ball and driving. He's never out of control, he can shoot, he can get by his man, he can finish, and he has timing on blocks.

Does Tatum really have four steals?

Yes. His defense has been great. Very active. And he has shown a smooth post game and the ability to drive finish, and to hit the three.

Fultz' reads, ball handing and defensive instincts are elite

Defensive instincts? He had that one nice block, but he looks as bad as advertised defensively. Pretty sure Brown made him look silly in the first half.

He has defensive potential with his length, but he's pretty bad as it is now.

What about Fultz looks so good?

I'm not watching the game so I can't see how he's playing, but he's not looking any better then Tatum to me based on box score alone:

Fultz:
11 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 turnovers, 5/10 FG, -7

Tatum:
9 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals, 4/10 FG, -5

 

Fultz has played 13 minutes. Tatum 23.

Nader getting that really bad charge called against him...

Not his finest moment
He blows hot and cold, great play followed by a bonehead one. He's 24. I had high hopes that are fading.

He's actually usually pretty consistent from the many times I watched him in the D-league.

But the real consistency test will come when he has time to play with a steady roster of good NBA players.

Yea basically whenever Futlz was guarding our raw rookie, he got destroyed. Fultz looks good offensively, but man he is a sieve. Although as Celtics fans we are conditioned to be okay with that.

Tatum's scouting report was correct in that he relies too much on his fadeaway jumper when matched up one-on-one. Without a size/speed advantage those shots are a lot tougher. He's taken some really ugly ones.

Jaylen has to work on his ball handling and free throw shooting.

Tatum has to work on transition scoring and Shooting off the catch instead of waiting for the defense to readjust and going one on one.

I've only seen mid-third up to now, but that's what I've gathered.

Seriously...Tatum has been open on the pick and pop and Jackson goes to the rim. No awareness

I mentioned it earlier, he often looks down while dribbling.  That's why he doesn't see open teammates and defenders in position to block his shot.

7/11 is a dumb nickname but it is catchy.

Jaylen heads above everyone today.  I think for all those that were worried about overlapping skills and the inability of Tatum and Brown to play together, today was your answer.  Completely different games, and very complimentary skills.  Brown better in the open floor a better athlete, Tatum dangerous creating his own shot and longer and better hops that we thought.

I know it is only summer league, but that was fun to watch.

He was clearly outplaying Tatum until winning time when Jayson just took over.

Fultz is gonna be terrific but I'm pretty ****ing excited about the future of this squad with jayson and jaylen.

THAT'S why we drafted him! Someone who can create their own shot and get a bucket when we need it....19 yrs old!

This is why I don't get all the hate on Tatum.

People say that defense wins games, but that's not entirely true.  Defense keeps you in games - clutch scorers win games.

* Ray Allen's dagger three lifting Miami over San Antonio for the title
* Durant's pull up jumper eliminating Lebron and the Cavs
* Countless Lakers and Celtics games won at the hands of Paul Pierce / Kobe Bryant daggers

The general consensus out there is that ISO ball is bad because basketball is a team game, yadda yadda yadda.  But for a pure team offense to work, you have to rely on every day guys to hit huge clutch shots - and not a lot of guys have that in them.

More often then not, it's great ISO scorers who end up winning you games - especially in the playoffs.

For similar reasons, I hate the fact that people are so obsessed with three point shots and are so against the midrange game. 

Everybody raves about how midrange jumpers are the worst shot in the game, etc.  But how many games have the Bulls, Celtics, Mavs, Lakers, Cavs and Heat won off midrange jumpers from guy like Paul Pierce, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzski, Lebron James and Dwyane Wade? 

When you're in a tied game or 1 point game and everything's on the line, then two points makes the difference between winning or going home.  And in that scenario I'd put my money on a midrange jumper over a three any day of the week.

Jayson Tatum cold blooded assassin

nerve of steel

Brown and Tatum were fantastic. Brown did alot of the damage at the beginning and Tatum near the end.   

Zizic had a decent game.  Works hard, nice size. Otherwise i have no idea how he fits into CBS system.  Maybe only to come in vs the Zaza, Gortats of the worlds

Nader was decent... maybe has a shot to contribute at the pro level. Nothing really stands out. Doesn't look confident in his shooting

Jackson is 1st class garbage

Semi so far looking like Ben Bentil... little to no impact on the floor.   Danny should have picked Jordan Bell

Jaylen Brown with a double-double. Probably the next Kobe Bryant-esque player?
He does not belong in the Summer Leauge LOL.

Good to see Tatum shining in his first NBA, summer league game.

What I took from the C's this game.

Rozier's spot is pretty secure. Jackson and Allen were bad.

Nader can't hang with NBA guards. He also probably won't make the roster if his shooting isn't lights out.

Zizic needs more conditioning. But he should be okay off the bench as the 5th big. His defense and offense needs a lot of work again no way near being a starter for an NBA team. C's may be trouble depth wise.

Tatum needs to watch all the reaching in. But flashed tons of good offense.

Brown shouldn't play any more games unless he simply wants to build chemistry with Tatum. He has nothing to prove.

Semi was active but was not given enough touches to form an opinion.

Bird looked like a guy just looking to shoot and nothing else.

First game impressions:

I get people hating on D Jackson's offense... His defense however is pretty solid.  I can see him filling a Phil Pressey role where he's just out there to setup the half-court offense and play D. 

Semi physically looks like a power forward (if you haven't seen him on the court you'll get what this means when you do) he's just built a lot bigger than everyone else around him.  Some very nice things from him including one made 3 pointer from WAY back.  I hope they don't send him to Maine.

It looks like Nader spent an entire season working on all the wrong things in the D-League.  He looked like a potential 3-D NBA wing last year in summer league.  Now he's looking for his offense every time he touches the ball but doesn't have the skill to score reliably in isolation against bigger faster more determined athletes... He looks like he's going to go down swinging however... He DOES play the same speed all game and had some solid takes and timely rebounds. 

Kadeem Allen looks like an NBA player to me.  Actually... he looks like 1 player specifically.  Marcus Smart.

Tatum - Wow... patient, deliberate, fearless a lot better on D than advertised.  Also, if you haven't heard, he took over the game in the 4th quarter and capped it off by hitting a shot to take the lead over 2 players with 5 seconds left.  If he were white I bet he'd have drawn a lot more comparisons to a young Dirk before the draft...

Fultz was absolutely electric.  I can't take anything away from him except his atrocious free throw shooting.

Jaylen Brown... Great progress, if his offense doesn't click this year in the NBA it will next year I think.  I wouldn't be surprised to see him dominate Summer league.  I also wouldn't be surprised to see him plagued by silly young player mistakes (he made a couple over-ambitious drives that turned into turnovers already).

Zizic... Ran out of steam after the first half (about ten minutes of playing) and staggered around the court for the second half.  I think people imagining the next Jokic or Nurkic are going to be sorely disappointed.  Those hoping for a Zaza Pachulia with less motor might be getting exactly what they're looking for.

If Fultz has a better year than Tatum (and he likely will), we will be self-inundated with 'what a huge mistake' posts.   I am ALREADY tired of them.  Does no good.  Deal is done. 

We have Jayson Tatum and a future draft pick.  I can't wait to know what that pick gets us -- whether it's a top 5 '18, part of a package that gets a star, or a lottery selection in '19.   This is the focus -- who we have; not who we don't have.

Good game. Brown needs to start and Tatum needs good minutes. I don't really care about regular season wins, as long as we make the playoffs, I want these young players to be ready for the playoffs.

Jackson and Allen are not good pgs. Their poor play almost cost us the game.

Not sure about Nader either.  He needs to learn control.

Brown & Tatum go for 50/20 in the win, with the game winning jumper and blocked shot.

Fultz goes for 17 points (6-16), 2 boards, 1 assist, 4 turnovers and gets rejected by Brown to lose the game, in a game where our PG was the worst player on the court.

Somehow this thread is full of "Fultz is a superstar" posts. Ya'll must be fun at parties.
If you can't see the kid is brilliant, you're blind.

If you think that's the takeaway from this game, like I said, you must be fun at parties.

We all know Fultz is talented, but he was the 3rd best player in a summer league game. Nobody can "see" how great he is based on that. Wow, what a Jordan-esque 6 for 16.
He was clearly outplaying Tatum until winning time when Jayson just took over.

Fultz is gonna be terrific but I'm pretty ****ing excited about the future of this squad with jayson and jaylen.

I don't feel there is a need to put either guy down - I am confident both are going to be excellent players.  Danny seemingly felt they were 1A and 1B and I was pretty much in line with that thinking.  I felt more like Fultz was an A+ and Tatum an A, but at the same time I felt it could go either way.

To me the big giveaway wasn't physical ability so much, but level of development.  19 year old prospects are usually either very raw in terms of skills, or dramatically underdeveloped physically. 

Tatum and Fultz were the only two guys I could see in the projected top 10 who looked to have complete all-round games (free of any glaring faults) as well as NBA ready bodies.  To have that at the age of 19 is special.  In fact the only recent prospects I could say the same about were Simmons and Karl Anthony Towns, and both of those guys look future stars.

If Fultz doesn't have a statistically better year than Tatum, then he will be a HUGE bust. Fultz will have all the opportunity in the world to play, make mistakes, and succeed. Philly may make the playoffs, but they are so far away from the Cs (at least the next couple of years) that Fultz will be a featured player, while Tatum will be lucky to get the Jaylen Brown '16-'17 treatment.

Mostly I'd agree.  You're being pretty generous with Jackson, who competed hard and is clearly athletic, but man was he bad with the ball in his hands.  Semi, you can see the potential, but he seemed a little in over his head, not confident with the ball at all.  I think the G-League will be his home this year.

Nice write up.  Couple comments -
Jackson and Nader should have been better.  Both have had a full year in D-league so their performances, while ok, was disappointing given where they are at.  I thought Nader especially should have been MUCH better.  He has length, can go with his left hand and is a decent shooter, but he also still makes mistakes that will be unacceptable at the NBA level, like turnovers.

Zizic was a man among boys in the 1st 10 minutes, as you said.  However, he clearly is slow, deliberate and lacks conditioning.  That said, he should be able to make the roster, but certainly won't be a starter on this team as some have projected.  Ainge needs to go get a starting center and I sincerely hope he makes a move now.

Like Vox_Populi said, we didn't see enough of Semi to form an opinion, but he has range.

Brown - Did what he needed to do, which was simply to be the best player on the floor.

Tatum - Seems a bit 'tight' at times, maybe 1st game jitters, but clearly settled down.  Has some decent defensive plays.  I am so glad he played better than Fultz in the 4th quarter.  That will do wonder for his confidence.

Fultz - A truly dynamic scorer with a great feel for the game.  Not bad on defense either.  Poor FT shooting, as advertised.  Questionable shot selection at times, seemed to be trying too hard.  I predict he will be ROY, but it's not clear what his long-term upside his.  Let's say, much better than Jamal Crawford.

"We often talk about transcendent players and stars, but I think the hardest skill to find in our league is guys that can score in the fourth quarter, the last six minutes of the game type of scorers. Usually the offensive patterns don't score baskets at that time, usually it's the individuals and the talent and I think that's always a priority, regardless of need by position. But those kinds of players are hard to find and I think that Isaiah is our best at that right now, so it'd be nice to have one or two more of those before the season starts next year, and ideally at other positions

I like that quote.

It actually gives a lot of insight into Danny's recent draft history.  Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier are both guys who seem to live for those moments and elevate their games in 4th quarters and playoffs when it counts the most.

Not sure of Tatum's history in those situations, but his elite skill level as an ISO scorer (especially from midrange) screams of his potential as a late game closer. 

Even Brown in the playoffs showed flashes of having that fearless mentality with the way he played against Cleveland and Lebron - never stopping to admire Lebron's greatness, always having competition on his mind. 

Though at same time, some of his other picks (e.g. Sully, Olynyk) seem about as far from that as it gets, but then you can see why he went for those guys at the same time. 

Our bench this season will be almost entirely under he age of 23 (Rozier, Smart, Brown, Tatum, Zizic) and yet may well be one of the top benches in the league despite that.  The potential of that group is awe-inspiring.

I saw nothing too bad from Fultz but he isn't ready to switch on bigger guys right now defensively. Teams may attack him that way. I agree he looks like a player very much in control. He took Nader easily and made a few players look bad including Brown. Fultz should be a good player early on. How he adjust and develops time will tell. Looks like a good trade for both clubs right now. Can they both be winners?

Does anyone know if they'll be doing a NBA League Pass for Summer League again this year? I haven't been able to find anything about it yet.

I don't think so. I'm pretty sure all of the games are televised on one of ESPN's channels or NBA TV.
Try ESPN3 for the NBATV games.

I just want to point out that while people are killing Jackson's offense (and he wasn't good at all offensively and had a couple terrible decisions in the 4th quarter) he had 1 turnover in 26 minutes of play, had 2 steals, and had the highest +/- on the team at +11.

A lot of people won't recognize what he brings to the court, but he wasn't as bad as most people are making him out to be, he's just not a scoring point guard.

First game impressions:

I get people hating on D Jackson's offense... His defense however is pretty solid.  I can see him filling a Phil Pressey role where he's just out there to setup the half-court offense and play D. 

Semi physically looks like a power forward (if you haven't seen him on the court you'll get what this means when you do) he's just built a lot bigger than everyone else around him.  Some very nice things from him including one made 3 pointer from WAY back.  I hope they don't send him to Maine.

It looks like Nader spent an entire season working on all the wrong things in the D-League.  He looked like a potential 3-D NBA wing last year in summer league.  Now he's looking for his offense every time he touches the ball but doesn't have the skill to score reliably in isolation against bigger faster more determined athletes... He looks like he's going to go down swinging however... He DOES play the same speed all game and had some solid takes and timely rebounds. 

Kadeem Allen looks like an NBA player to me.  Actually... he looks like 1 player specifically.  Marcus Smart.

Tatum - Wow... patient, deliberate, fearless a lot better on D than advertised.  Also, if you haven't heard, he took over the game in the 4th quarter and capped it off by hitting a shot to take the lead over 2 players with 5 seconds left.  If he were white I bet he'd have drawn a lot more comparisons to a young Dirk before the draft...

Fultz was absolutely electric.  I can't take anything away from him except his atrocious free throw shooting.

Jaylen Brown... Great progress, if his offense doesn't click this year in the NBA it will next year I think.  I wouldn't be surprised to see him dominate Summer league.  I also wouldn't be surprised to see him plagued by silly young player mistakes (he made a couple over-ambitious drives that turned into turnovers already).

Zizic... Ran out of steam after the first half (about ten minutes of playing) and staggered around the court for the second half.  I think people imagining the next Jokic or Nurkic are going to be sorely disappointed.  Those hoping for a Zaza Pachulia with less motor might be getting exactly what they're looking for.

Zizic was a man among boys in the 1st 10 minutes, as you said.  However, he clearly is slow, deliberate and lacks conditioning.  That said, he should be able to make the roster, but certainly won't be a starter on this team as some have projected.  Ainge needs to go get a starting center and I sincerely hope he makes a move now.

Call me crazy, but I'm still pretty OK about us going after Nerlens Noel - especially if Hayward goes to Utah / Miami. 

By missing out on George and Butler we've been kind of forced to lean more away from the "win now" mentality and more in the direction of the "keep developing/building" mentality. We will still be a very good team and should win a lot of games, but we have no hope of beating Golden State and little hope of beating Cleveland (even if we do add Hayward).

As such, I'm ok with us continuing on as a top 2-4 team in the East, while focusing more of our attention on building our core so we can compete for a title 2-3 years from now.

Noel isn't a guy who likely puts us over the edge right now, but as a 23 year old guy with truly elite physicals (7'0" height, 7'4" wingspan, 9'2" standing reach, extremely athletic) who can already rebound and defend at a very high level, I would be ok with overpaying a little on the hope he can flourish in Boston.

I feel like a youth group of Rozier, Smart, Brown, Tatum, Noel would fit together perfectly with a very nice balance between scoring, rebounding defense and ball handling.

THAT'S why we drafted him! Someone who can create their own shot and get a bucket when we need it....19 yrs old!

This is why I don't get all the hate on Tatum.

People say that defense wins games, but that's not entirely true.  Defense keeps you in games - clutch scorers win games.

* Ray Allen's dagger three lifting Miami over San Antonio for the title
* Durant's pull up jumper eliminating Lebron and the Cavs
* Countless Lakers and Celtics games won at the hands of Paul Pierce / Kobe Bryant daggers

The general consensus out there is that ISO ball is bad because basketball is a team game, yadda yadda yadda.  But for a pure team offense to work, you have to rely on every day guys to hit huge clutch shots - and not a lot of guys have that in them.

More often then not, it's great ISO scorers who end up winning you games - especially in the playoffs.

For similar reasons, I hate the fact that people are so obsessed with three point shots and are so against the midrange game. 

Everybody raves about how midrange jumpers are the worst shot in the game, etc.  But how many games have the Bulls, Celtics, Mavs, Lakers, Cavs and Heat won off midrange jumpers from guy like Paul Pierce, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzski, Lebron James and Dwyane Wade? 

When you're in a tied game or 1 point game and everything's on the line, then two points makes the difference between winning or going home.  And in that scenario I'd put my money on a midrange jumper over a three any day of the week.

Well said and so very true.

Thanks for saying so.

It doesn't get said nearly enough around here these days.

I've been a Noel fan for a while, but it seems Ainge is not.  He could have gotten him earlier given how little Dallas gave up to get him.  Ainge/Stevens want a big man who can shoot from the outside and hit free throws.  They want no weak positions on the offensive end.

Tatum is a rich man's Crowder, Fultz looked like a 6'5" IT.

Yes, Tatum's lefty finish and dirk fade reminded me of Jae, too.

Lol, TP ;D.

Jackson...man..he is not very good. I cannot see him making this roster with the guards ahead of him.

I watched him play a lot in Maine and I can confirm that he sucks. He just doesn't stand out and isn't great at any one thing, even at the D-league level.

Nader has potential though, he's long, fairly athletic, and very well-rounded.

Well, I guess we now know why he slipped in the draft :-\ *facepalm*. It's weird, too, imo, because he has the speed, quickness, and athleticism but it's like he doesn't have the handle to be able to make the most of those physical gifts/tools.  Honestly, the dude reminds me of David Rivers.  Sigh, I guess that I'm Dunn ;) as an armchair scout/gm thingy, lol ;D.

Yeah, I've noticed that and to be honest it's kind of frustrating and borderline infuriating to me.

Team's need balance to be able to win. 

Sure Golden State is a great shooting team - but they wouldn't be so dominant if not for the fact that they also defend at an elite level and rebound the ball well. Draymond Green isn't valuable because he can step out and hit threes - he's valuable because he can do that while also being elite defensively AND a very strong rebounder.  Neither of their centers (Zaza or McGee) could hit a three to save their lives. But those two guys are long and physically imposing (either by atheliticsm or strength) 7 footers who are outstanding interior defenders and capable rebounders.       

Likewise Tristan Thompson couldn't make a three to save his life - but his rebounding and physicality inside give Cleveland the ability to play bigger then they are.

Boston's obsession with soft, undersized, finesse-style stretch bigs infuriates me. Sometimes you just need an old school big man who can rebound and intimidate would-be rim attackers.

Fultz played 11 less minutes than Tatum yet still had 4 more turnovers. I knew he had that turnover problem and it hasn't gone away it seems

Nice write up.  Couple comments -
Jackson and Nader should have been better.  Both have had a full year in D-league so their performances, while ok, was disappointing given where they are at.  I thought Nader especially should have been MUCH better.  He has length, can go with his left hand and is a decent shooter, but he also still makes mistakes that will be unacceptable at the NBA level, like turnovers.

Zizic was a man among boys in the 1st 10 minutes, as you said.  However, he clearly is slow, deliberate and lacks conditioning.  That said, he should be able to make the roster, but certainly won't be a starter on this team as some have projected.  Ainge needs to go get a starting center and I sincerely hope he makes a move now.

Like Vox_Populi said, we didn't see enough of Semi to form an opinion, but he has range.

Brown - Did what he needed to do, which was simply to be the best player on the floor.

Tatum - Seems a bit 'tight' at times, maybe 1st game jitters, but clearly settled down.  Has some decent defensive plays.  I am so glad he played better than Fultz in the 4th quarter.  That will do wonder for his confidence.

Fultz - A truly dynamic scorer with a great feel for the game.  Not bad on defense either.  Poor FT shooting, as advertised.  Questionable shot selection at times, seemed to be trying too hard.  I predict he will be ROY, but it's not clear what his long-term upside his.  Let's say, much better than Jamal Crawford.

Regarding Zizic, he averaged like 10 mins a night in Euroleague. So it's not surprising that was his limit tonight. Summer League games are also a little ragged which contributes to his slowness no doubt. A 20 year old kid can definitely play himself into NBA shape. A la Perk..

I am basing the following observation not just on this one summer league game, but I can definitely envision Markelle Fultz having some struggles with the speed and athleticism of the NBA game early in his career.

He has been heavily lauded for his "controlled" pace up until now.  He may find that pace gets him in much more trouble against NBA athletes than against PAC 12 ones.
