Here are Boston's final statistics from the Orlando Pro Summer League, courtesy of NBA.com:
From a Celtics fan's perspective, the 2013 summer league was primarily about 4 players: Kelly Olynyk, Fab Melo, Colton Iverson, and Phil Pressey. As we all know by now, Olynyk was very impressive. His 18.0 PPG ranked 3rd in the league, as did his 8.0 rebounds. Pressey also finished second in the league in assists, averaging 6.6 per game. Splitting time at the center position with Melo, Iverson was only on the floor for an average of 16.6 minutes, but still managed to pull down 5.4 rebounds per contest. By comparison Melo grabbed just 3.4 boards per game while playing 18.2 minutes.
Olynyk is obviously a lock to make the team, while Iverson and Pressey will likely be battling for final roster spots in training camp. A lot could still change before the start of the season, but I expect to see another year in the D-League for Fab Melo.
