C's finalize summer roster

7/5/2012

The Celtics formally unveiled their 11-man summer league roster Thursday. Boston plays a 10-game summer slate in Orlando and Las Vegas starting next week. Here's a glance at the numerical roster (with position, height, weight, and college):

7 - Jared Sullinger - F - 6-9 - 260 - Ohio State

12 - JaJuan Johnson - F - 6-10 - 221 - Purdue

13 - Fab Melo - C - 7-0 - 255 - Syracuse

40 - Jonathan Gibson - G - 6-1 - 171 - New Mexico State

41 - Jamar Smith - G - 6-3 - 185 - Southern Indiana

43 - Kris Joseph - F - 6-7 - 215 - Syracuse

50 - Dionte Christmas* - G - 6-5 - 205 - Temple

52 - Stephane Lasme - F - 6-8 - 215 - Massachusetts

55 - E'Twaun Moore - G - 6-4 - 191 - Purdue

56 - Sean Williams - F - 6-10 - 235 - Boston College

63 - Craig Brackins - F - 6-10 - 230 - Iowa State

* Will play in Orlando league only

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.
