Christmas In July - Dionte May Get Camp Invite

Last year, even without the benefit of a summer league (or much of an offseason really) the Celtics were able to discover Greg Stiemsma, who became a critical playoff rotation guy. This week the Celtics are in the midst of their second of two summer leagues and aside from developing their draft picks and showcasing guys for trades, they are hoping to strike gold once again.

Of the undrafted guys, it looks like Dionte Christmas has the best shot at sticking around, at least with an invite to training camp.

Boston still seems to be Christmas' preferred choice. After a productive stint in the Orlando summer league that saw him average 12.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4 assists per game, Christmas stuck with the Celtics in Vegas, and C's president of basketball operations Danny Ainge confirmed Thursday that Christmas is in the discussion for a training camp spot. "We've been talking to Dionte. We'll continue," Ainge said. "We'd like to see him there [in training camp]."

Last week Christmas was only supposed to be with the Celtics in Orlando. He had such a good experience that he stuck with the team in Vegas. Now, especially with E'Twuan Moore off to parts unknown (by way of Houston), Dionte might just keep on sticking with the team to Waltham and perhaps even to Boston (or Maine more likely).
