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.
