OLYNYK

 

We’re a little more than a week away from the Orlando Summer League, where guys will put on green and white practice jerseys and try to make us feel better about the upcoming season.  Here, via Sherrod Blakely, is that group:

NAME    HT    WT    COLLEGE
Colton Iverson    7-0    255    Colorado State

Kelly Olynyk    7-0    238    Gonzaga

Fab Melo    7-0    255    Syracuse

Phil Pressey    5-11    175    Missouri

DeShawn Sims    6-8    225    Michigan

Courtney Fells    6-6    210    N.C. State

Tim Ambromaitis    6-8    236    Notre Dame

Darius Johnson-Odom    6-2    215    Marquette

Tony Mitchell    6-6    216    Univ. of Alabama

Lawrence Hill    6-8    220    Stanford

I’m honestly quite surprised that Terrence Williams isn’t on the list.  I thought this is the summer he started to learn the point guard spot?

Here’s a look at the full schedule.

And now would be a good time to remind everyone that I will be there, covering it for us.  I’ll have full write ups, but I’ll also be tweeting up a storm (and instagramming some pics and video).

    Do you think with the slew of players coming in that we will get rid of Shav, White, and Williams since they aren’t on this squad?

    • Astarot

      I think White is gone, Williams, personally I think he should be on the roster but after all the problems he’s had who knows. And Shav to me he did a great job off the bench, good enough at least to make the roster especially that Olynyk is not good on the boards, I know aout the guys from the trade but don’t think we will see all of tchem coming to Boston (some of tchem aren’t on the deal anymore, and Humphries well let’s hope he’ll land somewhere else)

    It will

    It will be interesting to see how Fab Melo has improved since last summer

  • Celticsfanatic

    Wait wait wait…. Tony Mitchell didn’t get drafted??

    • Celticsfanatic

      Whoops… my bad. Different Tony Mitchell.

  • CoachAJ

    Pressey has a legit shot at making the regular roster. We do need another PG.

    • CoachAJ

      Also looks like there is going to be a concentration on getting the ball inside too. Three picks are centers. They all need the ball to show what they can do.

  • Astarot

    Yeah it’s a bit strange. Shav should be there just for what he’s done for the team, Wiliams, well they might want to give him a tray. Pressey should make it at least to the training camp. Shame they didn’t go for C.J. Leslie. I don’t know other 6-8, 6-9 guys hope they’re good, I know Leslie was good at N.C State but he’s with NYK.

  • Lee in Oregon

    I just read where we’re getting MarShon Brooks, NOT Reggie (poster child for flopping) Evans, that’s good news.

    With Olynyk, Iverson, & Melo, we have 3 7-footers. Would be nice if one or two of them can contribute……I don’t have high-hopes for Fab but I do hope I’m wrong.

    A bit surprised none of last years guys from the Chinese league are there……is DJ White still around?

    • Astarot

      He won’t be around on July 1 I think that’s when his contract expires but I’m not sure.

  • Joanne Tran

    When does summer league start?

  • kobe_beef2424

    Let’s guess how many wins will the Cs have next season? 21-61
