How to watch Celtics' Summer League opener vs. Hawks


If you want to watch competitive Boston Celtics basketball this weekend, you're in luck.

The Celtics kick off 2021 NBA Summer League play Sunday against the Atlanta Hawks in their first of five games in Las Vegas. Summer League is a great opportunity for Boston's young players to either hone their skills or angle for a roster spot.

Romeo Langford, Aaron Nesmith, Payton Pritchard and Carsen Edwards -- the four players on Boston's Summer League roster who played on the C's last season -- will look to prove they deserve more playing time this season, while recent draft picks Yam Madar (second round, 2020) and Juhann Begarin (second round, 2021) get the first chance to play in a C's uniform.

Madar will be especially intriguing to watch, as the Israeli point guard won the Israeli Premier League Most Improved Player award in 2020 while playing overseas.
