They will play the Heat, Lakers, Hornets, and 76ers in these four matchups.

Boston Celtics Summer League Roster Revealed

Familiar Faces

Neemias Queta, Jaden Springer, Jordan Walsh, JD Davison, and Drew Peterson are all returning players from Boston’s championship-winning squad. Queta and Springer are the two only players who are on standard NBA contracts. With Queta recently signing a new deal this offseason. Queta could be a valuable rotational big man for the Celtics with Kristaps Porzingis sidelined to start the season. In 28 games with the Celtics last year Queta averaged 5.5 points, 4.4 rebounds, and .8 blocks per game. Queta is a high-energy rebounder and rim protector but needs to improve his offensive consistency and basketball IQ to get more minutes. This development can start in the Summer League.

Springer was acquired from the 76ers at the deadline. The 21-year-old guard has solid upside as a point-of-attack defender and will be one of the Celtics’ top Summer League players. Notably, this will be Springer’s fourth Summer League with the previous three all being with the 76ers. Last year Springer led the Sixers in scoring averaging 22.3 points per game.

Walsh the Celtics second-round pick last year hopes to earn a standard contract after spending much of last season in the G League. Last summer Walsh led the Celtics in scoring averaging 16 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.6 assists while shooting 40 percent from beyond the arc. He will certainly be one of the Celtics’ best players this summer.

The Celtics re-signed Peterson on a two-way deal earlier this summer. He appeared in just three games with the Celtics last season but has upside as a six-foot-eight shooter. Davison, the 2022 second pick will play in his third straight Summer League. In two years with the Celtics Davison has only appeared in 20 total games but he has shined in the G League. Davison was re-signed by the Celtics on a two-way deal shortly after the Summer League roster was announced.

The Rookies

The Celtics rookies, 30th overall pick Baylor Scheierman of Creighton, and 54th overall pick Anton Watson of Gonzaga will play important roles. Scheierman projects to be a perfect fit with the Celtics’ systems as a knockdown wing shooter with a well-rounded skill set. The 23-year-old super- senior shot 38 percent from three on 8.3 attempts per game while impressively averaging 9.0 rebounds and 3.9 assists. A stellar Summer League outing could help Scheierman earn some regular season minutes. Watson also provides high-level rebounding averaging 7.1 rebounds last season as a six-foot-eight forward. He also averaged 14.5 points giving the Celtics some extra wing scoring this versatile skill set makes Wastson an ideal fit.

Other Notable Names

Ron Harper Jr. the son of five-time champion Ron Harper also joins the squad. Harper Jr. spent four years at Rutgers University and has played with the Raptors as a two-way player for the past two seasons. He has appeared in a total of 10 NBA games in that time. Jaelen House the son of 2008 NBA Champion Eddie House and NBC Sports Boston analyst is also part of the roster. House had a five-year college career at Arizona St and New Mexico. House led New Mexico to an 11 seed in the NCAA tournament, this past season.

Jayson Tatum‘s high school teammate Tyler Cook is an exciting addition to the roster. The University of Iowa product has played in 65 total NBA games over five seasons. However, he hasn’t played in the league since 2022. Regardless, Cook is an intriguing six-foot-eight wing who will likely play a large role in the Summer League. Former Gonzaga standout big man Killian Tillie is another exciting addition with solid NBA experience.

Jahmi’us Ramsey a former Texas Tech guard who recently spent time with the Raptors, and rookie Tristan Enaruna who played his collegiate ball at Kansas, Iowa St, and Cleveland State complete the roster.
