Nolan Smith likely to get training camp invite by Boston Celtics

USA TODAY Sports

He didn't last long in Summer League, will he stick around in the Fall?

Nolan Smith got injured in the first game of the Summer League, so there wasn't much of an audition there. However, that might not stop the Celtics from bringing him into Training Camp for a look (most likely on a non-guaranteed contract).

I certainly doesn't hurt to bring him and maybe another couple of guys into training camp to give us some full squads to go against each other. You never know what you might find - as we saw with Greg Stiemsma a couple years back.

Best known for his work at Duke, where he helped capture the 2010 national title against Brad Stevens and Butler, Smith has played two underwhelming seasons for Portland since the team selected him with the 21st pick of the 2011 NBA Draft. The 6-2, 185-pounder holds career averages of 3.3 points and 1.2 assists over 9.9 minutes per game. After the 2012-13 season, the Blazers declined to pick up a team option that could have kept him in Portland.

Nolan certainly doesn't lack in confidence. Or maybe he just understands that there's not many chances left in his career.

Should be interesting to see how he does.
