Young averaged 7.5 points and 2.8 rebounds across six Las Vegas Summer League games. While Young was playing in his third summer league, he was still the third-youngest player on the Celtics' roster. As such, the former blue-chip recruit remains an intriguing project, but he hasn't made tangible strides since entering the league in 2014, having played in just 60 NBA games. The 20-year-old's effort was reportedly questioned by an assistant coach in Las Vegas, which certainly doesn't bode well for his chance of cracking the rotation, let alone the roster, in 2016-17. Given the Celtics' considerable backcourt depth, Young's time to prove his long-term worth may be running short.
Young logged one minute of court time in Thursday's 104-92 Game 6 loss to the Hawks, but didn't accrue any statistics. Though the Celtics lost Avery Bradley (hamstring) for the series following Game 1, Young wasn't able to take advantage of any available minutes, as coach Brad Stevens mostly opted to tighten his rotation rather than extend the second-year swingman's role. As a result, Young made only three appearances and played a total of 11 minutes in the six-game series. While still only 21 years old, Young has done little to show he's an NBA-caliber player in two seasons in the league, and could very well find himself off the Celtics roster heading into 2016-17 season.
Young was recalled from the D-League's Maine Red Claws on Friday. After a brief one-game stint with the Red Claws where he posted 11 points (3-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and two assists, Young will return to the Celtics' active roster for Friday's matchup with the Bucks. Young has seen action in just one of the Celtics' last nine games and saw only three minutes in that one appearance, so he'll remain off the fantasy radar despite the call-up.
Young was reassigned to the D-League on Thursday. Young will return to Maine, where he's spent much of his second NBA season. The Red Claws are in the midst of the D-League playoffs, so Young figures to remain with the team until its run comes to an end.
Young was recalled from the D-League's Maine Red Claws on Wednesday. The Red Claws are still in the midst of the D-League playoffs, so it's likely that Young and Jordan Mickey, who was also recalled, will only remain with the Celtics for Wednesday's tilt with the Pelicans. Don't expect either player to see much action off the bench.
