Johnson, Moore, and Williams were on the roster last season, while Sullinger, Melo, and Joseph are Boston's rookies. Lasme nearly made the roster a couple seasons back and has spent time with the Maine Red Claws, as have Craig Brackins and Jamar Smith. Remember that some of these players, in addition to auditioning for NBA jobs, might be of interest to the Celtics as they take over control of the D-League Claws this season.
