Tatum isn’t playing. I assume Bird, Allen, Semi and Williams do.

Who else?

we should know more in the next week or so when the celtics send out invites. i think the summer league begins july 6th, so we wont wait long.

Yabu and Nader.

I really hope Nader isn't playing.

1. He sucks!
2. He's already played in 2 summer leagues.
3. He shoots too much, which is going to take away from teammates.
4. He holds the ball too much, which is going to take away from teammates.
5. He sucks!

Nader had wrist surgery and is out for the summer.

Bird is only likely to play if he’s signed a contract by then, which is probably a 50-50 chance.

Likely starters -

Yabu...it'll be interesting to have him featured on offense. He better dominate SL.
Semi...let's see how his offensive game looks against weaker opposition
Williams
Allen
Eddie...curious to see him if he can follow-up his strong showing late in the season

Bench-

Bibbs...shot 42.4 from 3's during his college career, including 45% and 43.2% his sop/junior yrs
Gibson...curious to see if he plays for us or another team, but we do need another ballhandler on the SL C's

Fringe NBA/G-League bigs should be able to get some good run on our team.

Summer league is always about the guards. Rare to see a big man shine in that forum.
It is and couple that with Yabo doing his volume shooting you have to wonder whether Williams will be simply running up and down the court all night.  Hopefully at least one guard will be there with instructions to give Williams some consistent touches.

Were I Ainge, I would cut Nader and sign Bird ASAP to the same kind of deal.

Hitting a few open shots doesn't mean your offense isn't rudimentary. I want to see if he's made any improvements handling the ball, passing, creating offense, etc.

Nice eye roll, though.

Add Demitrius Conger to the Summer League roster. Finished second in MVP voting for the NBL while averaging 19.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game for the Illawarra Hawks.

BIG trouble ......out of the whole nest of players , NOne are offensive minded  gun slingers .  Danny has picked all his role players as defensive specialist

We might not score 25 points or win any games .

I agree .....Yabu either dominates as 16 th pick , sophomore or he hits the road .  All,that playing out of comtrol is low IQ ,  he drives me wild with frustration . Defensively he can do ok ....but again Danny dosn't have anybody who can shoot .  Crazy   he ll,nee to score 20 -25 a game for Celtics to have any chance or competing .  These are kids and low leveo players , if they can t standout here , then i feel bad about his future.

If Summer Celtics win a game it will be like 40 to 38. where they shut down the other team , and barely make enought points to win a bizarre type game.  Surely there must be another IT somewhere in the world thatbis unstoppable offensively, has to be . 

could this be the worst Celtics summer camp ever .  LOL. .....maybe i can try out .

Yeah, this squad will not be nearly as good as last year, with Jaylen and Jason.  Then again, wins don't matter in SL.

We can debate about Yabusele, but I only want to see what the rookie Williams can do, in spite of SL being a guard-oriented league.
