BOSTON (CBS) — While Celtics fans wait for some free agent fireworks over the next few weeks, they can also get a glimpse of the future.
The Celtics announced their rosters for the Utah and Vegas Summer Leagues on Friday, which include five of their six 2016 draft picks.
Celtics fans will get their first look at third overall pick Jaylen Brown in a Celtics uniform (wearing the No. 9 jersey), along with first-rounder Guerschon Yabusele and second-round picks Ben Bentil, Demetrius Jackson and Abdel Nader. They join 2015 selections Terry Rozier, R.J. Hunter, Jordan Mickey and Marcus Thornton on the summer rosters.
First-rounder Ante Zizic out of Croatia is the only 2016 Celtics draft pick not on the summer rosters.
Also rounding out the rosters are 2014 first-round pick James Young and free agents Malcolm Miller, Corey Walden (both of whom appeared on the 2015 Celtics Training Camp roster), JayVaughn Pinkston and Mouphtaou Yarou.
Celtics’ assistant coach Micah Shrewsberry will man the bench for the summer Celtics in Utah, while assistant coach Jamie Young will helm the Vegas team.
The C’s Utah Summer League play tips off on Monday, July 4 against the 76ers, with matchups against the Jazz on July 5 and the Spurs on July 7. All three of those tilts are scheduled to tip at 7pm.
Boston’s slate in the Vegas Summer League begins on July 9 at 6pm against the Bulls, followed by games against the Suns on Sunday, July 10 at 10:30pm and the Mavericks on Tuesday, July 12 at 6pm. The Celtics will play at least five games in Vegas, with games between July 13-18 announced by the NBA at a later date.
