    Should be an enjoyable summer league... Bertans was a guy that was invited a while back, so I assume the Ainge's like what they saw...

    I think Moser is going to impress some people. He plays like Mike Scott, and he had a pretty successful year for ATL.

    He's another of the tweener, stretch 3/4 players, but he rebounds well and can shoot out to the NBA 3 line.

    I dont expect him to make our roster, but his play will get him a spot somewhere.

    I think the C's should take a REAL hard look at C. Johnson. He played hard all the time and at times was the best player on the court for them. It would be nice to see Smart and Johnson on the floor together going all out.

    Mason Plumlee will continue to get better... He's gonna benefit from another year with KG...

    Olynyk, as expected, impressive early. He dominated last year's summer league, and he'll dominate again this year. I like Smart's court vision so far, but I want to see him go to work on offense with scoring. He's only taken one shot (missed a 3), and hasn't shown off his best skill, driving to the rim. I like Iverson's energy, definitely showing he wants to earn that roster spot. Pressey looks impressive, also. Great ball handling and court vision thus far. Great leadership. We're not even through the 1st quarter, but just some early thoughts.

    Smart definitely has first game jitters. Looks out of sync from his usual self. Can't only look at his scoring for talent level this early. He's definitely showing off great PG skills and defense. I'm impressed, just want to see more from him.
