While we did not get one in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic gripping the planet, basketball fans around the world are celebrating the return of Las Vegas Summer League and, in the depths of the 2021 NBA offseason, reading into the smallest of sample sizes far too much once again.
The Boston Celtics in particular look to make liberal use of the (normally) annual event to kick the tires on highly anticipated stashed 2020 guard prospect Yam Madar before making a decision on whether to buy out the Israeli floor general. It will also give the Celtics a look at new big man Moses Brown and some extended run for last season’s rookies.
While guard Payton Pritchard and wing Aaron Nesmith may not be the focal point of the team’s Las Vegas Summer League squad, they and several other younger Celtics plus some camp invites are going to give us all something to watch in the deepest depths of the summer doldrums.
Watch this most recent episode of the CLNS Media podcast “Celtics Beat” with guest Tom Westerholm of Boston.com as they break down who we ought to have our eyes on in Las Vegas — and why — in the clip embedded above.
