BOSTON, MA – Celtics 2014 Draft Picks Marcus Smart and James Young will join current Celtics Kelly Olynyk, Phil Pressey, Chris Johnson and Chris Babb as members of the Celtics entrant to the 2014 Orlando Pro Summer League. They are joined on the roster by 2013 Celtics draft pick Colton Iverson, European veterans O.D.

The Celtics’ first game in the Summer League will be Saturday, July 5 at 11:00 a.m. ET when they take on the Miami Heat. The Celtics’ five-game schedule in Orlando continues with match-ups against the Indiana Pacers on July 7 at 3:00 p.m. ET, the Detroit Pistons on July 9 at 7:00 p.m. ET, and the Orlando Magic on July 10 at 5:00 p.m. ET. The final game is TBD on Friday July 11 and will be determined by the league standings. Under the format, each team will play five games over the seven-day event, with a championship day being played on the final day of the league. A point system will establish the standings leading up to the final day, with eight points awarded each game based on: four points for winning the game and one point for winning a quarter (in the event of a tied quarter, each team will receive 0.5 points). In the event of ties in seeding heading into championship day, three tiebreakers will be in place: 1) total point differential; 2) total points allowed; 3) coin flip.
