The Boston Celtics announced that they plan to add their No. 45 pick from the 2021 NBA draft to their 10-man Las Vegas Summer League roster set to start play at the MGM Resorts-hosted event kicking off later this week in Nevada.
That pick, French shooting guard Juhann Begarin of LNB Pro A’s Paris Basketball, was initially left off of a roster that included four Celtics players from last season (Carsen Edwards, Aaron Nesmith, Payton Pritchard and Romeo Langford. It also included Zach Auguste, Aric Holman, Dedric and KJ Lawson, Sam Hauser, and Yam Madar, with the latter two hoping to play their way into some time with the regular season roster in 2021-22.
Not even 19 years old, the Les Abymes, Guadeloupe native could likely use experience at any level of advanced play, and while summer league may not be at the level of NBA play, it is still valuable experience for the young wing to participate in.
If his comments Wednesday were any indication, Celtics fans could finally see the version of Romeo Langford they expected when he was taken in the 2019 lottery. https://t.co/hZcmBO9XgF

No word as of yet as to whether Begarin is currently stateside, but with the schedule kicking off on Aug. 8, he should be very soon if he is not already.
