James Young once again finished a summer league with more questions than answers about his game, and the Celtics guard didn’t have anything to add in the 80-75 loss to Portland yesterday in the club’s summer finale.
Danny Ainge, asked yesterday about what he has seen from Young and how he regards the forward’s future with the team, said, “I thought he had a really good summer league in Salt Lake. I thought he played well. He only played (seven) minutes the other night. I think James is doing fine, but we have a lot of decisions to make. A lot is dependent on what deals we’re able to do or not do, like do we sign or not sign another free agent?”

Source: Nuggets, Mason Plumlee Agree to Deal
Restricted free-agent center Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to the Denver Nuggets, league sources told ESPN.
Agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports and Denver president of basketball operations Tim Connelly reached agreement on the deal late Sunday night, league sources said.
With the deal, Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season — which would’ve allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
