Dairis Bertans To Stay With Bilbao Amid Camp Invites, League Conflict

Dairis Bertans received multiple invitations to NBA training camp, but the Boston Celtics’ summer league guard has decided to stay with Bilabo in Spain, a source told RealGM.

Bertans’ playing future had been in question due to the conflict between Bilbao and the Spanish ACB league. He’ll now remain with the Spanish club in the ACB.

Bertans averaged nearly seven points and two rebounds in three games for the Celtics in Orlando last month. The 6-foot-4 guard suffered a freak head injury in a game where he was carted off in a stretcher and to the hospital.

Bertans, 24, averaged 10.4 points and 1.6 rebounds for Bilbao a season ago. His brother, Davis Bertans, was a draft acquisition of San Antonio in 2011 and spent time around the Spurs’ organization this summer before re-signing overseas.

Bucks Expected To Soon Sign Damien Inglis

Damien Inglis expected to be a first round pick before he broke his foot in a workout in Oklahoma City Thunder.

Inglis was drafted 36th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks.

"I was surprised but I was so happy for that," Inglis said of being chosen by Milwaukee. "The Bucks are a young team, and I'm so glad to be part of this project."

Inglis will be in training camp with the Bucks.

Inglis has a 7-3 wingspan and exhibits good footwork, and scouts believe he can be a quality defender in the NBA.

"My game is all about being versatile," Inglis said. "I try to be an all-around player.

"My first strength might be rebounding. Defense, passing the ball. That's the stuff I can bring to a team right now.

"I've got to work on decision-making, my shooting game. I'm in some good hands. I've got coach (Jason) Kidd and the Bucks organization."

Inglis has not signed a contract yet but said he expects to do that relatively soon. He will return to France before coming back to Milwaukee in late August or early September.

"Then I will start playing basketball, finally, after a summer without playing," Inglis said. "I miss basketball."
