Jeff Potter: Happy news for Oliver Lafayette today, but tough news for the Mad Ants. Oliver has signed on with Partizan Belgrade to play this season in the Euroleague. The past few weeks (actually longer), we have tried to like crazy to get him to come back to the Ants after being released from the Celtics. I understand him taking this offer, because Partizan is an outstanding club and playing in the Euroleague is as good as it gets in Europe. I am very happy for Oliver, and this is a well deserved job and opportunity for him and his family. With that said, I truly believe he jumped to Europe too soon. He has been in the NBA mix for about 5 months, and he would have been entering this season at the top of the call up list. pottersnewblog.blogspot.com

Sprinkle in a trio of rookies -- Avery Bradley, Luke Harangody, and Semih Erden -- and suddenly Gaffney and Lafayette find themselves on the outside looking in as training camp approaches later this month. Ainge made sure to reach out to both Gaffney and Lafayette to stress that they would still have a chance to compete for a roster spot and that the team planned to keep the 15 best bodies coming out of camp. "That's all I needed to hear," Gaffney said. "As long as there's a spot for me to earn, I'm going to do everything in my power [to earn it], or die trying." ESPN.com
