Asked about the wide-ranging spectrum of expectations — from (Danny) Ainge seemingly underselling (Kelly) Olynyk despite moving up three spots to snag him at No. 13 in June’s draft, to those who want him in the starting lineup on opening night — Olynyk smiled again and shook his head.
“I just want to help the team any way I can,” he said. “Whether it’s as an asset on offense or defense, whatever I can do. Just try to bring energy and excitement, and a work ethic every day to help this team get better. That’s all you really can do. The pieces will fall where they will, but if you bring the attitude and effort, then good things will happen.”
