- Tom Carpenter, Fantasy and Insider
Surely, Luigi Datome hoped to have a bigger impact on the NBA after coming over from Italy for the 2013-14 campaign. He played just 34 games, while averaging 7.0 minutes, for the Detroit Pistons that season and managed to take part in only three games for them this past regular season before being trading to the Boston Celtics.
Datome has largely remained pinned to the pine in Boston, too, but he has had some opportunities with the Celtics he didn't have with the Pistons. Among the 18 games he has played for them, he has scored in double figures five times. That includes 22 points in their regular-season finale
Tom Carpenter checks in on Boston Celtics small forward Luigi Datome's hopes for the summer, when he will become an unrestricted free agent.
