    The Phoenix Suns announced the signing of Dionte Christmas on Friday, a 6’5″ guard who performed well for the team during the Las Vegas Summer league. “We’re excited to add Dionte to our roster,” said Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough, via the team’s official release. “He was a key contributor for our Las Vegas Summer…

    LAS VEGAS – The two teams that have played the best and most consistent basketball through the first 10 days of Summer League will, not surprisingly, compete for the inaugural tournament championship played on the final day of the action. The Suns will face the Warriors in Monday night’s title game, with tip-off set for…

  4. Celtics sign Leandro Barbosa to backup Rajon Rondo

    Leandro Barbosa, Indiana Pacers

    Well, I guess they are bringing in a veteran after all. The Boston Celtics have agreed to a one-year deal with point guard Leandro Barbosa, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC Sports Network. The Celtics decided on Tuesday to let Dionte Christmas go and there were reports they might start to look…

  5. Celtics considering adding veteran to roster. Maybe at point.

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    When Dionte Christmas was sent packing from Celtics camp — with a nice $200,000 buyout — we were left with a question about who was going to get backup point guard minutes behind Rajon Rondo? Maybe nobody. Jason Terry can do some ball handling with the second unit (although he works better off the ball),…

  6. Reports: Kris Joseph makes Celtics roster; Christmas, Smith waived

    Oct 16, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    Dionte Christmas

    Dionte Christmas looked pretty good for the Celtics at Summer League. He has played well enough for them this preseason that CSNNE.com’s A. Sherrod Blakely thought he stood a good chance to make the team. Nope. Multiple reports have come out today that Kris Joseph has made the Celtics roster and both Christmas and Jamar…

    UPDATE  4:51 pm: Nope. Turns out Kris Joseph has made the roster and both Dionte Christmas and Jamar Smith have been waived. It is a bit of a surprise considering how Christmas has played. 10:55 am: It looks like Christmas is coming to Boston a little early this year. Dionte Christmas — the 26-year-old NBA…

  8. Kevin Garnett can’t be bothered to learn rookies’ names

    Italy Celtics  EA7 Emporio Armani Basketball

    Hey rook, Kevin Garnett will bother to learn your name when you prove it’s worth his time. And you are nowhere close. Nowhere. Close. It’s almost a running joke, around the Celtics facilities Garnett does not bother to call Boston’s crop of rookies by their names. Hasn’t in the past, he’s not going to start…

  9. Report: Celtics will sign Darko Milicic next week. Seriously.

    Brendan Haywood, Darko Milicic

    When the report first came out of Boston looking at Darko we took it with a grain of salt… oh, who are we kidding, it was like a 5 lb. bag of salt. But apparently it’s true — the Boston Celtics are going to sign Darko Milicic, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. A league…

  11. Celtics officially sign Collins, three others to round out roster

    Except for our national Dwightmare, we’ve reached the point in the summer where teams are making small signings to round out their rosters. There are some good players still out there, but we are talking role and end of the bench players now. The big moves are done. With that, we bring you news of…

    LAS VEGAS — Seven days in Las Vegas is a long time regardless of the occasion, but there are times that it has seemed particularly long this week as four games in a gym watching fringe NBA players play basketball can surprisingly take its toll on a guy. There are always a few moments that…

  14. Josh Selby shows he’s closer to reaching potential at NBA Summer League

    josh selby

    LAS VEGAS — Josh Selby earned a vote for the NBA’s All-Rookie Third Team this past that many in the media felt wasn’t deserved. While that may have been the case, there’s a good chance he cemented himself a spot on the All-Summer League roster following Monday evening’s performance at the Cox Pavilion in lovely…

    The NBA Summer League is already through four days of basketball, leaving those around the world clamoring for non-Team USA basketball just six more days of games until the annual extravaganza is complete. There’s already been one player that has received a confirmed NBA training camp invite (congratulations, Chris Copeland!), but plenty more players are hoping for…
