Danny Ainge said Josh Jackson 'didn't want to play for the Celtics'

Josh Jackson Garrison Goode Brynton Lemar Mikey Henn

Later in the Draft, the Celtics welcomed aboard Southern Methodist forward Semi Ojeleye (37th overall), Arizona guard Kadeem Allen (53rd overall) and Cal-Berkeley guard Jabari Bird (56th overall). And with the Celtics flush with assets and cap space to continue improving, Tatum may be competing for a lot more than just Rookie of the Year.

Butler ended up going to the Minnesota Timberwolves in an early-night blockbuster.

The Celtics were originally scheduled to see Jackson workout in Sacramento last week, according to Deadspin. "Each brings something different to the table from the small forward spot", said Fraschilla. "Went at a high tempo, but when he missed a shot he never showed anything but resolve to make the next one".

On the other hand, this kind of process is only fair for every player who wants to jump into pro basketball whenever they desire.

In fact, Tatum's best quality is his ability to score while being covered.

"We would have picked Jayson with the first pick".

"You guys know my connection to the Boston Celtics and the respect I have for Danny Ainge, but you guys also know how competitive I am and it is a competition", McDonough told AP.

"We liked his size and length and rebounding and shooting".

Jayson Tatum and one of his mentors, Bradley Beal, have held a lot in common over the years.

This also marks the third time the airline has won all three First Class award categories at the World Airline Awards . The A380 flights include 26-inch entertainment screens, seats almost 2-feet wide and privacy partitions.

Imagine that. Hayward and Paul George?? According to several reports, the Celtics were engaged with IN in serious discussions about the all-star swingman, who is expected to get a max contract IN free agency next summer.

Tatum was a player they kept a close watch on during the season. The Pistons drafted Kennard with the 12th overall pick Thursday night, and the 6-foot-6 guard from Duke certainly could fill a need.

Although slated to pick third, the Boston Celtics ultimately passed on Jackson's services after being unable to host a pre-draft workout with him.

The Celtics began the afternoon waiting for the monumental asking price on Porzingis to drop.

Here's the latest from around the National Basketball Association rumor mill-including speculation on Ball landing with the Los Angeles Lakers with the No. 2 overall pick and Jackson potentially avoiding a workout with the Boston Celtics.

Boston is crowded at Tatum's position on the wing, with Jae Crowder and last year's No. 3 pick Jaylen Brown already on the roster, but after trading down from the No. 1 pick to add a future first-round pick this week, general manager Danny Ainge could cash in his trade chips for a star in the near future.

But here's where things get verrry interesting for Boston: The Celtics have a chance to take some of those young talents they just drafted and other pieces and turn them into gold.

Graham said he and his KU teammates plan on watching the draft at KU coach Bill Self's house. Seeing that Isaiah Thomas shot most of the team's free throws past year, this gives him the ability to pass the ball in better hopes of making the shot off the contact rather than going toe to toe with players that tower over him.
