The blockbuster trade that is now in place between the Celtics and Nets could translate into significant opportunity for younger players. With that in mind, the Celtics hurriedly assembled their team for the Orlando Summer League, which begins on July 7. In addition to last year's rookie center, Fab Melo, 2013 first round pick Kelly Olynyk, and second rounder Colton Iverson, a seven-footer from Colorado State, the Celtics have signed Missouri point guard Phil Pressey to a free agent contract. The team will only have a short time with Iverson, who reportedly plans to play in Europe next year, though the Celtics hold his rights. Boston Herald

Hardaway Jr. worked out on Tuesday for members of the Knicks staff in Westchester. He wasn't the only son of a former pro at the workout: Hardaway was joined by Glen Rice Jr., son of former sharpshooter and one-time Knick Glen Rice, and Phil Pressey, the son of 11-year pro Paul Pressey. Rice Jr. and Hardaway Jr. have known each other since they were growing up in Miami. And both have had to answer questions about their famous fathers for years. "A lot of kids go their separate paths and play different sports. They don't want that harassment or that constructive criticism because they're not going to be their fathers," Hardaway Jr. said. "We took on that challenge ever since we were growing up and we're just trying to live up to the expectation." ESPN.com
