Oof. Yabu playing SL going into year 3...not a good look for this player. This is basically a make or break year for this guy.

Don't we let most of our guys play in 2 SL's? Tatum is the first I can remember not doing it because he's so good already, jaylen would not have either but he insisted. Smart, roze, etc. all played in 2. IIRC Yabu hasn't played in 1 summer League but I could be mistaken, even if I'm not right on that, it's been 1 at the most.


Yeah, it's been one because I do remember the dancing bear came last season.

Yabusele played in SL the year he was drafted (2016), but not last year because of injury.  Regardless, he’s coming off his rookie season, and that’s not an unusual time for a Celtic to participate in summer league.

My only hope for summer league is that Robert Williams neither has a 14PT, 18RB, 5blk game where he absolutely dominates, or an 0-8 FGA, 0-6 FT, 2RB, 6TO stinker.

I don't think I'd be able to take the hysteria either way.

Here's to him playing most of the games and getting 8PT, 8RB, 2BLK and showing some decent potential.

The reactions if he did both ( which seems very possible to me) would be priceless.

Thanks for the correction, either way, it's only been once and Celts give their players 2 unless they are very good or they think they're too advanced already (I would say high picks but smart was 6th).

I’m not sure how many people we typically carry but the Summer League roster looks to be pretty much set or close to it at this point.

Robert Williams III
Semi Ojeleye
Guerschon Yabusele
Kadeem Allen
Jabari Bird (if signed by then)
Justin Bibbs
Jarell Eddie
Jarrod Uthoff
Daniel Dixon
Demetrius Conger

That’s 10 confirmed guys, maybe we add like 2 more at the most but since we are only playing in one Summer League this year instead of two that might be the complete roster already.

SERIOUSLY!?

IT'S HAPPENING, SALTLOVER! IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING! ;D



Bahahaha ;D.

I saw that.  And you think Ainge doesn’t listen to you.

Bahaha, TP, my friend ;D. He probably won't even get off of the bench and if he does he'll likely suck, lol ;D, but at least I'll finally get to see him in green, albeit for, what, a week? LOL ;D.

It's okay. For once, I'm actually going to enjoy something ;D.

Couldn't find sauce of roster, tho ;D.

Ugh, we don't play until the 6th and 7th?? I need us to play in 2 SL what the heck man??!! Only 2 games unless we win or is it just 2? Maybe I just read the schedule wrong... :o

Oops, we play on the 9th too! We're playing three days in a row. Ugly. I'd bet if any of the guys who are already on our official roster play well in 2 of the games they will probably miss the other game. We held Jayson and JB out some last season. Maybe not since it's only one SL this time.

We play three games for the standings, and then a minimum of two playoff games.  So you’ll have at least 5 chances to watch the Summer Celts!
