Marcus Smart, James Young highlight Celtics summer league roster
|07.01.14 at 4:10 pm ET|
The Celtics began their two-a-day workouts Tuesday, leading up to Saturday’s opener of the Orlando Pro Summer League in central Florida.
On Tuesday, the team announced the roster that will take part and released the five-game schedule.
First round picks Marcus Smart and James Young will join current Celtics Kelly Olynyk, Phil Pressey, Chris Johnson and Chris Babb as members of the Celtics entrant to the 2014 Orlando Pro Summer League. They are joined on the roster by 2013 Celtics draft pick Colton Iverson, European veterans O.D. Anosike, Dairis Bertans, Edwin Jackson and rookie free agents Mike Moser, Devin Oliver and Daniel Coursey.
The team will be coached by assistant coach Jay Larranaga, a routine procedure in summer league as GM Danny Ainge and head coach Brad Stevens sit back and observe.
The Celtics’ first game will be Saturday at 11 a.m. when they take on the Heat. The Celtics’ five-game schedule in Orlando continues with matchups against the Pacers on Monday at 3 p.m., the Pistons on July 9 at 7 p.m., and the Magic on July 10 at 5:00 p.m.
The final game is scheduled for July 11 and will be determined by the league standings. Under the format, each team will play five games over the seven-day event, with a championship day being played on the final day of the league.
A point system will establish the standings leading up to the final day, with eight points awarded each game based on: four points for winning the game and one point for winning a quarter (in the event of a tied quarter, each team will receive 0.5 points). In the event of ties in seeding heading into championship day, three tiebreakers will be in place: 1) total point differential; 2) total points allowed; 3) coin flip.
