The Vegas summer league is about to start it's tournament, so the amount of times we see these young players before the preseason are numbered. Puzzled, I opened up my saved videos and realized that the Warriors had played "not one, not two..."

But to look deeper into the rosters of the summer squads will reveal players whose journeys to pro basketball took detours through Central Massachusetts, specifically at a prep school in Fitchburg.

Usually such a rule is put in place at a local playground, but Wednesday (AEDT) in Las Vegas it was used to decide an NBA Summer League game at the expense of the defending NBA champions.

Amid a lot of guys extending their games and enjoying expanded opportunities, Semi Ojeleye has contributed to the summer league Celtics in similar fashion to how he'll be used moving forward.

Damon Jones is coaching Cleveland's summer team. Jared Sullinger, Kris Humphries Brandon Bass, Tyler Zeller, David Lee, and Amir Johnson have been starters or primary role players at some point during Stevens' time in Boston. He shot 8-of-12 from the field.

While they combined to go 0-of-5 on 3-pointers, Jackson and Fox displayed an ability to attack inside the arc on mid-range shots, slashes and getting to the free throw line.

This year's No.3 overall pick Jayson Tatum continued to impress. Brown went to the bench before re-entering the game a few minutes later. Lue sat next to Gilbert in the fourth quarter.

With Tatum and recently signed Gordon Hayward, an All-Star with the Utah Jazz, the Celtics are trying to position themselves as a serious title contender to the Cavs and Golden State Warriors.

Kerr joked: "I won't be able to sleep after this one". Let's explore in the summer edition of our NBA Power Rankings. He declined to discuss the departure of general manager David Griffin after the Finals, and reiterated praise for the front-office personnel who remain, including Koby Altman - who's been serving as the acting GM. Paul has led the team to an undefeated record in those three contests.
