How would you feel if your father didn't pick you in tonights NBA draft? Austin Rivers doesn't seem phased by that big possibility. He says he knows that its a business and that Doc Rivers and the Boston Celtics need to do what's best for their team.
"I'm just excited for this whole process," said Austin who will be with his father tonight for his draft moment. "It's a blessing to play for any NBA team."
Austin gets it. Doc gets it. Most of us get it. But does Austin's mother, Kristen Rivers get it?
It’s early for Celtics fans to be looking ahead to summer league play, but the C’s know at least one of their prospects likely won’t be there.
Guerschon Yabusele, the second of Boston’s three first-round picks in the 2016 draft, recently had surgery to remove bone spurs from the top of each of his feet, according to ESPN.com’s Chris Forsberg. As such, Yabusele is not expected to play this summer.
A 6-foot-8 power forward from France, Yabusele was taken 16th overall in last year’s draft. He began this season playing in China before finishing the season with the Maine Red Claws of the D-League.
