C's Kickoff Utah Summer League Tonight

The Annual Summer Leagues begin this week, and the Celtics have sent a group with four draft picks and a handful of first year players, veterans hanging on to their careers by a thread, and rookie free agents just trying to get their shot at the NBA. Boston will look to get Terry Rozier, R.J. Hunter, Jordan Mickey, and Marcus Thornton lots of minutes to see what they bring to the team.

The Utah Jazz Summer League starts tonight, and the Boston Celtics entry will have plenty of interest due to some of the new and old names on the roster. Second-year guard Marcus Smart is going to lead the unit, a tradition in Boston that helps the rookies feel more comfortable against their first NBA competition. The Celtics first game is tonight at 9PM EST vs. the host team Utah Jazz. Boston has a talented entry this summer; let's take a look at the roster.
