Training camp begins in a few days and the 2012-13 edition Boston Celtics will begin to take shape. While it does, we take a look at the players who will be filling or vying for a roster spot in a new digital art series we are calling, "All About 18" - the goal the C's will be pursuing this season.
As the roster currently stands, the team has 13 players under contract and two spots available. Those spots will be open for Summer League standouts Kris Joseph, Dionte Christmas and Jamar Smith as well as recent camp invites Rob Kurz and Micah Downs.
Following the retirement of veteran guard Keyon Dooling, the word is that the Celts are actively looking to add a veteran backup 1 from a short list of free agents. There should also be an opportunity here for Christmas and Smith - both of whom impressed during the Orlando and Vegas summer leagues - to earn the spot, although recent scouting reports between the two suggest Christmas as having the better 1 instincts.
