Ainge On Lester (and Summer League Roster)

Ainge introduced Lester to the press today (Lester will wear #26 in case you are wondering).  Here's what Ainge had to say:

"Lester is probably known for being a scorer in college basketball," Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said. "But we see Lester as a much greater player than that. He's one of the best defensive players in college on the perimeter, he averages eight rebounds per game as a point guard. He's a tough kid."

The Celtics are also inviting Mike Sweetney to summer league.

Update: The Herald has the rest of the summer league roster.  See after the jump:

The summer league team, which will play in Orlando next week, also includes rookie guard Lester Hudson, who was introduced to the media yesterday, guard Chris Lofton (University of Tennesee, Turkish league), Coby Karl (son of Nuggets coach George Karl, Boise State, Spain), Darius Washington (University of Memphis, Spurs, Czech Republic league), Bryce Taylor (Oregon, Italy), Kevin Rogers (undrafted out of Baylor) and Bryan Mullins (undrafted out of Southern Illinois).

Mullins, who came in early last week for a pre-draft workout, startled the coaching staff when he broke the Celtics record for the three-minute run - a staple for everyone during training camp.
