BOSTON - Colton Iverson has a second chance to show the Boston Celtics he is worthy of earning a spot on their roster. Iverson, a Yankton High School graduate, will play for the Celtics in their upcoming Summer League schedule, which begins Saturday in Orlando, Florida. A year after being drafted 53rd overall by Indiana, and later acquired by Boston, Iverson signed a 2-year contract with Besiktas of the Turkish pro league after playing for Boston in the Summer League. The Celtics will play five games at the Orlando Pro Summer League, and will be joined by Orlando, Brooklyn, Detroit, Houston, Indiana, Memphis, Miami, Oklahoma City and Philadelphia. Boston will begin action Saturday against Miami, and games will be televised on NBA TV and webcast online at NBA.com. Iverson, a 7-foot center who played collegiately at Minnesota and Colorado State, played in a total of 47 games while in Turkey.
