Keep the updates coming!

As a celtics fan, I'm looking at olynk and fab melo. I want to see if melo learned anything from a year of watching kg, I always thought that was going to either make or break melo. I wonder how his understanding of English and the game of basketball has gotten any better.

But as they say you can't teach size

Mitchell and Pressey

I think Tony Mitchell and Phil Pressey are two others to watch. Pressey is one of the top undrafted players and Tony Mitchell was D League rookie of the year

agree 100% with you. More so

agree 100% with you. More so for pressey than any other undrafted guy other than brandon paul form illinois. When pressey decides to be a facilitator he can control the other sides defense. If he plays that way consistently regardless of his size he would have a place in the league atleast until he was 30. His only detriments to much shot jacking and trying to be fancy, on offense. solid defender

Oladipo hits another 3, Coming out confident with the jumper. I like that they have him bringing the ball up court.

Harkless struggling to create

Harkless struggling to create his own shot, very right-hand dominant from what I've seen thus far.

Pressey (sp?) really forcing it, throwing some very fancy passes.

Olynyk is playing fine, but no better than expected of a four year player IMO, still annoyed with the pick for my Celtics - his arms are REALLY short.

I want to see Melo get involved offensively.

Does every four year player

Does every four year player play like this in the summer league? I totally missed it. Olynyk is lighting it up out there.

Olynyk ha 17 on 7/8 and 2/2 from deep and is playing good D (albeit a few fouls)

And who wants to see Melo involved on offense? Haha did you just wake up?

Phil pressy looking good out

Phil pressy looking good out there has acive hands, quick and can jump. oladipo has few things to tighten up( handle and passing).

Romero Osby is a big time

Romero Osby is a big talent. I was surprised he got drafted, but he was a really tough matchup in the Big 12 at Oklahoma. He can post or face up, and he plays hard.

Very impressed with Olynyk. Great pick and pop player with solid defense. Rebounding needs work tho.

Olynyk and Oladipo

really standing out on the floor. It's summer league, but they're playing up to their draft status.

Olynyk is alot better than I

Olynyk is alot better than I thought he'd be. I figured he'd struggle with the physical SL play since they like to foul every 2 seconds.

I gotta say, the Magic player

I gotta say, the Magic player movement is great, they are getting great looks, 1 on 1s and great 2-man games going, Celtics look a lot less polished - although that's to be expected obviously.

Olynyk is clearly offensively

Olynyk is clearly offensively talented, especially for his size. He has a place in a spaced/spread offense.

Defense/rebounding is a problem at this point though.

If Orlando

If Orlando could find a young rim protector in the near future, their defense could be potentially scary down the road

Am I the only one seeing that

Am I the only one seeing that Melo has terrible timing when jumping for rebounds and questionable hands? I'm starting to think he'll be another wasted talent, just doesn't seem switched on out on the court.

Romero osby?

What's his style of play? Face up or back to the basket? I'm not familier with him at all.

he did it all for oklahoma.

he did it all for oklahoma. athlete who rebounds, hustles, defends the 3 and 4 even at the nba level, and can hit any mid range shot. Oh yea i forgot to mention he will dunk on anybody.

This Is a great game, olynk

This Is a great game, olynk and oladipo showing out. Harkless had some postitive plays. Pressy looking solid, Colton iverson had some boards and blocks, Andrew Nicholson is playing poorly though.

i think pressey looks good

i think pressey looks good out there. nice game so far if he plays like this the whole summer league, boston should really consider making him the back up go to point behind rondo. He did commit turnovers in which he tried to do too much at missouri. Still, in around 15min of playing the back up, while giving his best, i think he would be put in a position where he had to play smarter. Plus tired of seeing bradley put in a position that everyone can tell he is uncomfortable with.

Olynyk hasn't looked good on

Olynyk hasn't looked good on defense, but he has been pretty great on offense. That left-handed scoop floater to beat the shot clock was Steph Curry-esque.

Also, Melo looks pretty bad out there. Just doesn't have a high B-ball IQ.

For Orlando, Oladipo and and Osby looks good, Nicholson and Harkless, not so much.

Melo was a bad pick PJ3 was there.

Melo is what I thought. Not much of a A NBA player. Deal him if possible. But who would offer anything for him? Sucks

Pistons

If the pistons trade Monroe to the celtics, they could try and unload him then

I think Oladipo has done a solid job running point guard in the half court, but I haven't really liked his decisions when he's had the ball in transition.
