Angelico Biella started the Serie A campaign with 3 losses and 1 win. The Italian team is on the verge of waiving rookie Ramone Moore who did not satisfy the staff with his performances (7.5ppg).

Now Smith has a chance to fulfill a dream. But sometimes that chance seems to be a dream. "When my agent told me (about the Celtics' invitation), I was, 'Are you serious?' " said Smith. "Now I'm in the gym two or three times a day. My dad called me and asked, 'Are you working hard?' When I said I was, he said, 'Well, you have to work harder.' " Evansville Courier & Press

The Boston Celtics have extended training camp invites to former UMass product Stephane Lasme, Southern Indiana's Jamar Smith, and LSU's Chris Johnson, according to a league source. If any of the trio elects to camp in Boston, they would be considered longer shots to make a roster that's already bursting at the seams with 15 players under contract for the 2010-11 season (not including Tony Gaffney and Oliver Lafayette, who boast non-guaranteed contracts), but could add depth and competition when the Celtics open camp on Sept. 28. in Waltham.
