Even though he won't be suiting up tonight, Kelly Olynyk is in Salt Lake City with the Celtics' summer league team. He's out there there to take some extra practice reps. I assumed Olynyk got on board the James Young Hype Train in Waltham, got distracted by Young's brand new 20 pounds of muscle, and forgot to get off before Salt Lake. But by all accounts, Olynyk did willingly travel to Utah of all places to work out with the team, a clear sign of his eagerness to develop his game this offseason.
Olynyk, in keeping with the Stevens "culture," showed up in Salt Lake to work out with Cs coaches before today's summer league practice.,— Mark Murphy (@Murf56) July 5, 2015
And hopefully a big part of that culture moving forward is unapologetically drilling threes.
Kelly just splashing 3s on Jay Larranaga... https://t.co/QB1Dm63dtT— Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) July 5, 2015
One thing that Olynyk has shown remorse for was the Kevin Love incident. Looks like the two connected and have put it behind them, though I'm sure Cleveland fans will take this one to the grave with them.
Kelly Olynyk said when Kevin Love reached out in May, Love wished him luck, said keep working hard & said "no hard feelings going forward."— Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) July 5, 2015
