Harangody has been particularly impressive in the practices leading up to the first game, according to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald.
“I thought Luke played great today,” said Austin Ainge, the D-League affiliate leader who’s running the C’s summer entry. “He really runs the floor well. With that kind of big body (a stocky 6-foot-8), you wouldn’t expect it, but he gets up and goes. He really runs the floor.
“And he’s got a knack for finding places to score. I guess when you score 25 points a game in college, there’s a reason for it.”
