Uncertainty Surrounds Celtics Bench?

The question here is the rest of the roster. The Celtics will begin camp Dec. 9 with nine players under their control. Jeff Green is a restricted free agent who will be eligible to field offers from other clubs that the Celtics are expected to match. JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore are rookies who barely have met (Doc) Rivers because of lockout restrictions.
The lack of a summer league hurt the Celtics deeply because Johnson, Moore, and Avery Bradley were unable to get any exposure to NBA competition in an organized setting. They will enter camp needing to fill key roles until team president Danny Ainge brings in veterans to compete for roster spots.
Ainge has pulled off some commendable moves before to rebuild the roster, but one of his toughest tasks will come in the next few weeks when he has to add talent to a salary-cap strapped roster. Glen Davis is an unrestricted free agent and after some grumbling about leaving has changed his mind and said he wants to return to Boston.
