Open Thread: Bender, Chriss and Suns host Brown, Celtics

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Who: Summer Suns vs. Summer Celtics

Gametime: 7:30 PM AZ Time


It's a battle of top draft picks as the Summer Suns take on the Summer Celtics.

The #3 overall pick, Jaylen Brown, and his Celtics team takes on the Phoenix Suns Dragan Bender, who went #4, and Marquese Chriss, who went #8.

But the Celtics are loaded even more than the Suns are. I mean, loaded.

They boast this year's second first round pick Guerschon Yabusele, last year's first round picks R.J. Hunter and Terry Rozier, 2014's first rounder James Young, as well as 2016 second round picks Ben Bentil and Demetrius Jackson and Abdel Nader.

No word yet if Devin Booker is playing for the Suns tonight, but the thinking is that Booker will either play tonight or Tuesday, but not both. He said it's up to the Suns. Selfishly, I hope it's tonight because (a) the Suns are on ESPN2 and (b) I'm here.
