Pruitt hopes for playing time

For a second round NBA pick, nothing is guaranteed. But Gabe Pruitt looks like a cinch to get a roster spot on the Boston Celtics after the team traded away point guard Sebastian Telfair in the deal to acquire Kevin Garnett.

“It definitely opens up a chance for me to step in and get a lot of playing time,” Pruitt said Sunday before the L.A. Stars All-Star Celebrity Basketball Game. “But there’s nothing set in stone so I’m ready to go in and work to earn a spot.”

Pruitt assured that he hasn’t turned on the Trojans despite this picture making the rounds on the Internet of him wearing a UCLA shirt.

“I was over with a couple of guys at UCLA and decided to put on one of their shirts,” Pruitt said. “It’s all fun and games. I didn’t keep it. I’m still a Trojan.”
