The Boston Celtics will have R.J. Hunter, James Young, John Holland and Ben Bentil will compete for their last roster spot.
Young and Hunter have guaranteed deals, Bentil has a partial guarantee, and Holland is non-guaranteed. Young and Hunter are former first round picks.
Hunter is the favorite to emerge from the group.
“I’m a competitor, so it’s just absolutely motivation for me,” Hunter said in a telephone interview. “I think it just adds an extra competitive spirit to training camp, which is a great way to get the year started.
“So I’d rather have it that way, because now I have no reason not to be on my toes on every possession and at every practice. So I’ll try to use it to my advantage.”
