Sitting inside the locker room at Cross Insurance Arena in Portland, Maine, earlier this week as the Celtics prepared for an exhibition game in conjunction with the Red Claws, Bradley shook his head while reflecting back to the series of events that helped jump-start his NBA career. "I was a completely different person when I came back from Maine," Bradley said. "I remember I came back, and I hadn't got a haircut, and they called me a 'man on a mission.' That first practice, when I dunked on Perk and Doc ended it, from that day on, I felt like I belonged in this league." ESPN.com

Does Bradley envision the D-League as being a good experience for Young? "It's not my place to say anything like that, but the one thing I can say is that, from personal experience, it did help me out a lot," Bradley said. "And it did help me gain that confidence within myself and, not only that, it let my teammates know that I'm not scared to play at the next level. It was really, really big for me." ESPN.com

“The Vipers have been great for us,” McHale said. “We sent guys down here. It helped them. D-Mo was down here. Terrence came down for a while. It really helps their game a lot. I like it. Like this year, will be a huge year for Clint Capela down here. That will be fantastic. Nick Johnson will be able to uses this to improve. It’s been fantastic for us. “ Houston Chronicle

The Jazz brought guards Dee Bost and Kevin Murphy into training camp with the idea that they could end up back with the team’s D-League affiliate in Idaho. After Bost and Murphy were waived on Friday, their futures remain somewhat uncertain, though the Jazz would like them back in Idaho if they don’t land somewhere else. "We appreciate all the energy and the work they gave us in camp," Snyder said. "Both of them did a good job. Right now it’s just competitive. I think both of them have a chance to be NBA players. Hopefully they’ll pursue that in Boise." Salt Lake Tribune
