E'Twaun Moore Making His Case To Stay

Eyeing a commitment.

E'Twaun Moore is on a non-guaranteed contract and technically could be released on Sunday. However, all signs seem to point to him sticking around and having the next year of his contract guaranteed by the Celtics.

Playing on a non-guaranteed contract, it would be easy to see why Moore would have himself as the No. 1 priority this week, as the Celtics have until midnight Sunday to bring the second-year Purdue guard back next season. But through two games in Vegas, the unflappable Moore has picked up where he left off in Orlando, caring more about steering a formidable Celtics summer ship to win after win than attempting to fill up the stat sheet.

He's probably been the best player on a very good Celtics summer league team and seems to be picking up the point guard position rather well. Not that he'll ever be another Rajon Rondo, but it helps a guy's chances to stick when he can help out at the point and play some combo guard in the rotation.

Another guy that earned himself some extra time is sharpshooter Jamar Smith.

Smith, who knocked in two 3-pointers among his 10 points in Monday's 87-69 victory over the Hawks, finally might be operating with some peace of mind, as he confirmed after Tuesday's win that he's earned an official invite to Celtics training camp in the fall. Smith said his invite was secured after the Celtics' fourth game of last week's Orlando Summer League.

Good for him. Not sure if there will ultimately be enough room on the roster for him in the Fall, but if SG options keep vanishing from the market, there might be some space for him after all.
