Jeff Green returns as the likely small forward starter and Evan Turner will receive minutes at the position, too. Rookie James Young might not be ready, but if he earns time, it will only further the crowding on the wing. Apparently understanding Stevens could cut his minutes average (24.4 last year) significantly, Wallace appears open to whatever comes his way. “He shared the same sentiments with me that he’s shared to all of you: he’s willing to do whatever to help this team,” Stevens said. “And that’s a great thing. He’s been a great veteran and that’s a real positive because nothing’s guaranteed from a standpoint. But we have a ton of depth one through three.” Wallace explained: “I’m here for supportive veteran leadership. Whatever the coach needs me to do. We’ve already talked about it. I’m in a position where I’m comfortable with it.” Booth Newspapers

Former Kentucky guard James Young says he is "good to go" after a concussion that kept the Boston Celtics' first-round draft pick from playing in the NBA's summer league. Young sustained the concussion and whiplash in a car accident before last month's NBA draft. The Celtics chose the 6-foot-6 swingman 17th overall with its second first-round pick — Boston selected Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart sixth overall with the first — but held Young out of practices and the competition for rookies and free agents in Orlando.
