C's sign first-round picks Smart, Young

7/10/2014

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Boston Celtics formally announced the signings of first-round picks Marcus Smart and James Young on Thursday night.

Boston almost exclusively pays 120 percent of the rookie scale -- the max allowed. That means that Smart, the sixth overall pick in last month's draft, is expected to earn $3.3 million next season; Young, the 17th overall pick, is expected to start at $1.7 million.

Smart is playing with Boston's summer league entry in Orlando this week, while Young, hindered by lingering soreness from a minor car accident last month, is simply observing the session while he recovers.
