"I want to invite him to come and watch us practice and just kind of see how I'm doing," said Shaw, who recently helped former Lakers assistant Frank Hamblen connect with former Lakers player and current Clippers assistant coach Tyronn Lue to observe Clippers training camp in San Diego. ESPN.com

A year ago, there was no training camp at all for Bradley, who was recovering from double shoulder surgeries after having the previous season halted in the playoffs. This year, though, has been different for the guard from Texas. There are no injuries and there’s no lockout, and after a full summer of preparation, Bradley was ready to go on the opening day of camp last week. “It feels good,’’ said Bradley after practice Sunday afternoon. “I’ve been making a lot of improvement in my game. I feel good about everything. “You kind of get a rough start (without a regular camp). I get a rhythm now and I feel more comfortable going out there playing the preseason games. I feel like I’ll be ready for the season.’’ The Enterprise

“It feels weird, but it’s pretty cool,’’ said Bradley, who not long ago was a little-used teenager. “I got a chance to learn from a lot of great players, how to play basketball the right way and how to be a professional, on and off the court. I’m just going to try to teach some of my teammates how to do the same. “It’s an amazing feeling. I’ve gotten a chance to play for the Celtics. It’s been a dream for me. I’m happy to be here and keep that culture going. I see Rondo, his approach. Even though he’s not playing, he’s on the sideline and he’s going hard in some of the drills that he’s in and helping us out. I want to do the same thing he does.’’ The Enterprise

The Nets signed Marko Jaric to complete their training camp roster at 19. Jaric is a 34-year-old veteran point guard who last played in the NBA in 2009 with Memphis. Given that Brooklyn already has 15 guaranteed deals, Jaric’s chances of making the team are extremely remote. ESPN.com

Despite undergoing surgery in April, Kelly still isn't quite read to participate in the team's training camp, which kicked off on Saturday. "I've been medically cleared by the doctors," Kelly said. "Now we're just taking our time, obviously because I haven't been able to run fully for a while now." Ryan is running on the Lakers' Alter-G treadmill, which helps support a percentage of his body weight. "We're at 90% today," said Kelly on Saturday, running on all but 10% of his 230 pounds. "You've got to get to 100% before you're running on the court." Los Angeles Times
