The Celtics indicated during the summer session that Pressey would be invited to camp and the two sides have been working on a deal the past two weeks. Celtics coach Brad Stevens expressed his admiration for Pressey last week in Orlando. “I like Phil, I like Phil,” Stevens said. "There are some things that Phil can certainly get better at. He’ll work hard to do it. Right when I got the job, I sent him a text message that night and he called me about a minute after I sent the text and I think he really wants to be good. He’s very dynamic with the ball and I think if he continues to do that and make shots, he’s going to be in good shape.”
