You’ll remember last year’s summer league as the time we first found out that Kelly Olynyk was a lock to have a better career than Dirk Nowitzki. Olynyk averaged 18.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.8 steals. This year, Olynyk could join the two rookies the Celtics are likely to draft, Chris Babb, Phil Pressey, and maybe even Jared Sullinger on Boston’s summer league squad.
