ORLANDO -- E'Twaun Moore had another solid summer league performance as he scored 15 points to go with five rebounds and four assists, but it was unheralded Jonathan Gibson who stole the show for the Celtics summer league team in an 82-73 win over the Nets. Gibson, an ultra-quick guard from New Mexico State, struggled on Monday, but he poured in 15 of his 17 points in the second half Tuesday to lead the comeback after the Celtics scored just seven points in a brutal second quarter.
One game after scoring a game-high 20 points, first-round pick Jared Sullinger struggled against bigger competition. He went 3-for-12 playing mostly against 7-footer Jeff Foote, although he did grab 12 rebounds and had a solid fourth quarter.
Fellow first-rounder Fab Melo was scoreless in 13 minutes with five rebounds, while second-round pick Kris Joseph scored 11 points and had five rebounds and looked like the best player on the floor at times.
The Saints announced Tuesday that they will have have joint practices with the Patriots this preseason. The two teams last practiced together in 2010.
After playing the Hall of Fame game on Aug. 5 against the Cardinals, the Saints will travel to Foxboro for two days of practice on Aug. 7 and 8 before the two teams square off in a preseason contest on Aug. 9.

KANSAS CITY -- Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, in a session with the Baseball Writers' Association of America at the All-Star Game, said that he has not seen the movie Pelotero -- a documentary on the amateur signing process in the Dominican Republic for which Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine served as executive producer -- but that he has been told that it is inaccurate, dated and unfair.
The documentary, which follows the signing process of amateurs Miguel Angel Sano and Jean-Carlos Batiste, describes Major League Baseball as possessing a potentially corrupt monopoly when it comes to permitting young players to sign, while also implicating both players and teams in the falsification of birth dates. Since the signing period followed by Pelotero, Major League Baseball issued rules changes regarding the international amateur market; MLB has also made a concerted effort in recent years to improve age and identity verification of...
Former Major League outfielder and current ESPN Radio analyst Chris Singleton joined Mut & Merloni Tuesday, discussing the Red Sox' chances down the stretch.
Though the Sox (43-43) are a .500 team, Singleton said that the roster is talented enough to deter general manager Ben Cherington from selling off parts. He noted that the Cardinals didn't play their best baseball until late last season before eventually winning the World Series.
"I don't think [Cherington's] in a position where you can trade players. There's just too much of an opportunity," Singleton said. "You have to look back at what St. Louis did last year. At this time of the year last year … they were dreadful to watch. They seemed to be just lifeless, there was no energy. Not that they didn't have it, but it just didn't seem to come across. … They ended up winning the world Series. I think teams have to look around at that and say, 'Last year the...
One-time Celtic center Nenad Krstic is staying with CSKA Moscow after agreeing to a new deal that runs through the 2013-14 season with a club option for the following season, via a report on Sportando. In a statement, Krstic said that he explored NBA offers but ultimately decided to return to Russia where he averaged better than 14 points and five rebounds for in Euroleague play.
It's unclear whether the Celtics would have had interest in briging him back. A team source noted last week that they were focused on other matters. By staying in Russia, the Celtics will be able to retain Krstic's Bird rights, but they can't include him in a sign-and-trade agreement because he is more than one-year removed from the roster.
