The Celtics also added free agent center Robert Swift to the roster. The former Oklahoma City/Seattle seven-footer, who joined the league straight out of high school, has always intrigued Ainge.
Anyone who has followed the Celtics for any time at all know that there have been rumors every year about how Danny coveted Robert Swift. Back when Danny drafted Al Jefferson, word was that he really had wanted Robert Swift, who the Seattle Supersonics took with the pick before Danny got to pick. There were even rumors that Danny was trying to trade Jefferson along with others to Seattle to get Swift, even after the draft. Just about every year, Danny's name has come up in trade rumors to get Swift.
Now, Swift is an unrestricted free agent and Danny has tagged him to play on the Celtics' Summer League team. We finally get to see Robert Swift in Celtics green. I have a feeling that with his red hair, he will be a favorite of Tommy's too.
Other players tagged for the Celtics Summer League Team include rookie guard Lester Hudson, guard Chris Lofton (University of Tennesee, Turkish league), Coby Karl (son of Nuggets coach George Karl), Darius Washington (University of Memphis, Spurs, Czech Republic league), Bryce Taylor (Oregon, Italy), Kevin Rogers (undrafted out of Baylor), Bryan Mullins (undrafted out of Southern Illinois) and four-year NBA veteran Michael Sweetney.

Mullins, who came in early last week for a pre-draft workout, startled the coaching staff when he broke the Celtics record for the three-minute run - a staple for everyone during training camp.
