Sixers Take On Celtics In Second Summer League Game

Now that the Sixers summer league team has knocked the rust off, they turn their attention to the Boston Celtics. The game tips off at 5 p.m. in Orlando. SB Nation NBA blog Ridiculous Upside has a few guys to watch for tonight.

76ers Free Agent To Watch: Cedric Simmons.

Philly is another team that brought a decent amount of guys under contract to play for them in Orlando, but Simmons stood out in limited minutes during Monday's action. If he's able to play solid defense and score when given the opportunity, things will only get easier when it comes time to making an NBA roster this Fall.

Celtics Free Agent To Watch: Ryan Thompson.

JayCee Carroll was initially my first option, but I'll be more intrigued by what Thompson can do rather than seeing if Carroll can consistently do what I know he can do. Thompson got to the charity stripe nine times in Monday's action and displayed a good offensive game, but James Harden lit him up on defense. Evan Turner and company won't make it any easier, but it'll be another good test anyway.
