Others are planned in Houston, Miami, Orlando and Atlanta. About 15 players showed up in Chicago, including Luke Harangody, Carl Landry, Ben Gordon and others. Earlier in the day, Hunter, Evans and other members of the union's traveling party met with a group of NBA player-agents in a downtown hotel ballroom. "Being a rookie last year and just learning about the league, this is obviously still new to me," said Harangody, a Cleveland Cavaliers forward from Notre Dame. "I've never been through a CBA before. All the uncertainty -- What's going to happen? Is there going to be a season? -- is definitely hard. "There were some deep questions and a lot of brainstorming about, like, what to do in the meantime while this is going on. I came out feeling that it was a very positive meeting." NBA.com

Jorge Sierra: Luke Harangody's deal with the Celtics is for two years and the minimum. Fully guaranteed, we're told. Twitter

“It’s a great feeling,” Harangody said. “It’s a little bit of job security, especially being guaranteed. I can kind of sleep easy at night. And for it to be officially signed is also a great feeling as well.” Boston Globe

The Celtics announced Tuesday that the team has agreed to a two-year contract with second-round pick Luke Harangody. However, the newest member of the team, Shaquille O’Neal, apparently wasn’t listening. When Celtics vice president of media relations Jeff Twiss announced that Harangody would be available for questions from the media, Shaq turned to Doc Rivers and asked, “Who’s that?” WEEI.com

After torching the summer league, second-round pick Luke Harangody will likely end up on the roster. Ainge constantly compared the Notre Dame product to some of the other second-round diamonds he mined over the years — Davis, Leon Powe, and Ryan Gomes. In Orlando, Harangody showed not just an ability to score, but a surprising ability to shoot from the outside. What will be interesting to watch is how first-round pick Avery Bradley will develop. The Celtics’ last first-round pick, J.R. Giddens, played all of 27 games in less than two seasons in Boston. He was never able to crack a rotation full of veterans, and ultimately was shipped to New York along with Bill Walker and Eddie House for Robinson. Bradley can defend and play either guard spot, but he’ll be behind Robinson, who bought in during the Finals, and Daniels, whom the Celtics couldn’t have been higher on at this time last year.
