The Celtics won't have as many big names on their summer league roster this year (the Brooklyn picks were going to run out eventually) but a roster that is expected to include Guerschon Yabusele, Semi Ojeleye, Kadeem Allen and future draft picks will suit up for a couple weeks of action in Las Vegas starting on Friday, July 6th.
The NBA released the full pool play schedule earlier this week, so here are the first three games the Celtics are locked into before tournament play starts on July 11.
Friday 7/6 7:30 PM ET (ESPN): Celtics vs. 76ers
Saturday 7/7 11:00 PM ET (NBATV): Celtics vs. Nuggets
Monday 7/9 7:00 PM ET (ESPN2): Celtics vs. Hornets
The Celtics will play at least two more games beyond these three contests during the stretch. Las Vegas will be the only summer league that the Celtics participate in this year (no Utah). I'll be live on the scene reporting for Boston Sports Journal as we get our first glimpse of the C's new draft picks.
