It is training camp season, which means the Boston Celtics need to narrow down their team to a 15-man roster.
The C's have a talented bunch of players this season, some of whom will not make the cut. However, a D-League demotion isn't necessarily a bad thing. It gives young players a chance to develop their skills so they can fully contribute to a NBA team.
The surprise departure of Keyon Dooling intensified the battle for a roster spot, especially because he was another guard in the Celtics' deep pool of shooting guards. The recent signing of Darko Milicic leaves a single roster spot up for grabs.
Only one player can emerge from training camp as a member of the Boston Celtics.
